Sell GBPUSD at 1.2435. Hedge around election risk with GBPJPY.

I have 30 pairs open for risk management (not all with trades open, trades will open on other pairs only to balance positions)

Short GBPXXX (actually almost all trades are short)

I have changed my strategy to long term, low risk (March 2017 at least). I think markets will be erratic, USD positive short term for Clinton win purely on sentiment, negative Trump win. Long term I think the tide will change, positive Trump win, negative Clinton win. From a third perspective, I see Trump plan energize growth, reduce deficit (though military spending lingers as uncertainty), increased production, etc. With Clinton I see stagnation in growth (doing the same thing expecting different result? not likely.), increased taxes, increased medical - 'WhateverCare' will put a strain on households already under pressure = more debt = more inflation = more pressure, recycle. I like Clinton clean energy plan, I don't like Trump increased industrial and mining... other than that I'm more optimistic overall on Trump plan to stimulate US$.

For every loss there should be at least an equal and opposite profit.

To trade or not to trade - the results are fact and it will be a long day 😄 Will be watching the news closely but for now will stay away from the market.

Knowledge is king!

I decided to stay away from majors like EURUSD and GBPUSD. I saw the spikes and the volatility and realised it was good decision for me.

I didn't trade during the elections at all. I don't like doing it during such high volatility. But I did start trading again already.

I traded just a couple of indices and after a quick loss I decided to stop and stay away for a while until everything gets back to normal.

Actually I tried trading the Dow Jones index and had a good profit to cover the losses on other instruments.
