Good job on gbp.


The only good thing about is that EA is able to feel the news while it's still worth to straddle it.

Hi

Straddling is all well and good but you definitely need the right brokers to make it work, seriously restricts how much you can make with it as a long-term strategy.

Yes I have tested enough EA, now I need to do it on a live broker to see if it's still fine.
Well I'm thinking to use the same broker on demo and live and I will compare trades : )l

Today news seem good to bet weaknes usd vs. NZD or EUR.

Eur is down five waves and is possible for a three wave correction, but better opportunity nzd offers, imho.

Thank you.

Indeed, EA has detected the news @ 3.30pm and straddle EURUSD & GBPUSD.
Both long orders end up with -4 pips as News was in ZIG ZAG mode... which is obviously not good for Straddle strategy.
