    I agree. It looks like a good idea to not trade until next Wed, after the belated NFP on next Tue...

      Hi Guys, for those of you that still have trades open you can download the Oanda platform, it normally shows you where price is at least 2 hours before your MT4 terminals start Sun/Mon.

      This will give you prior notice to see where price is so that you can ride out a possible retracement that SS was hoping for or if price has gone North (pain).

      I did this about 6 years ago, I am not sure if Oanda still open early as I have not used them for many years.
      Just have a look here:

      • I assume it to be very helpful for everyone subscribing to this signal to get some more information:
        - What is really the maximum drawdown of this signal and what currency is it based on? Thus anybody is able to adjust according to his own risk tolerance.
        - Is it possible to open and close positions only outside of low liquidity hours? If not, I would perhaps finish my subscription due to the massive lotsize floating into the market at the wrong time.

          What I am planning on doing is: if the price has moved south prior to market open I will wait until the spread gets as close to normal as possible and then close all 10 trades manually, I don't want the software to close my trades automatically as I could be paying a high price on spread even if price has moved in our favour, hope that makes sense to all of you.

          • To Add: If you guys are going to let the software close the trades when the spread is high at market open, and lets say it is 10 pips in the first few minutes it may be wise to wait a few minutes as you will be giving away 10 trades x 10 pips = 100 pips to your brokers, minus of course the average spread.

                Hi Kenji, I mean when the markets opens after the gap, in my case 10pm Sunday night, usually spreads across all pairs are extremely high and settle after a while, it all depends on ones broker, some brokers spreads return to normal in 10 to 20 minutes and some can take hours. Usually ECN brokers spreads settle down very quickly.

                Have a look at the pic above, you don't want to be closing your 10 trades with these spreads

                • I'm wondering does anyone have any idea what the gap will be or will we not know until it comes about?

                    Hi danbr1990 , hopefully this link (thanks to Leenvr) should give us an idea closer to market open if it updates.

                    • Guys, in all cases keep your terminal closed for at least the first 30 minutes to hour of market open to avoid big spreads and slippage due to low liquidity

                        • Price is now trading at 0.84860 which is better than when SS closed his basket, lets hope it keeps dropping

                          • Since I am one of those whose trades were closed I won't hope that (evil face)
                            Lol

                              • Spoke to soon, it is now at 0.85035 which is about 10 pips higher than when SS closed his trades.
