    Wow, they are a gloomy lot! Mostly FX traders and that's tough. Don't know how you can trade anything intraday without good order flow.

    Their mood is probably directly correlated with the size of their Christmas bonuses.

    I have to totally agree with their comments, as a retail FX trader it has been sh!tty year for FX. If you are a manual FX trader you will know what I mean. Things have changed considerably.

    I find I am leaving more and more positions up to my EA to choose, what there is to choose that is.

    Not complaining about this open (EA chosen), but based on my manual method, manually I would been shaken out of this by many of the reasons stated by the players interviewed.

    There you go, NY took it up, NY took it down. Not complaining about the nice swing action though. Only one take profit method can work in these times and that's trailing.
