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)
Long AUDXXX

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.

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.
