Weekend Forex Gaps – Summer 2015 Edition

Weekend Forex Gaps – Summer 2015 Edition:

 

After another weekend episode of what seems to be the never-ending Grexit saga, the markets have opened with big gaps. Actually, from a trader’s point of view, it’s less important why it happened. What matters is that as long as positions are left open during the weekend, the trader has surrendered control. He is now at the market’s mercy and this can have some really nasty consequences. Here’s how the damage looks like at 21:20 GMT on some of the major forex pairs:

 

 

EUR/USD – 1.0980 down from Friday’s close at  1.1171 for a gap of 191 pips

EUR/JPY – 134.60 down from Friday’s close at 138.36 for a gap of 376 pips

USD/JPY – 122.58 down from Friday’s close at 123.85 for a gap of 127 pips

GBP/JPY – 192.20 down from Friday’s close at 195.00 for a gap of 280 pips

EUR/GBP – 0.6999 down from Friday’s close at 0.7094 for a gap of 95 pips

Before leaving an open position over the weekend, always ask yourself: will my trading account be able to handle large adverse moves such as the ones above?

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100 sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it
