Dollar took the lead in the short term on short covering and Kiwi had flipped on the medium and long term while Aussie is relatively unchanged. The days of profit taking for FX traders are here.

OUR PICK – No New Pick

No new pick for the year end due to thin markets. Year end is the time to reflect upon our performances and what have we done well and what could have been better. How good have we been in following our processes and procedures in the trading plan. Have we able to achieve our yearly goals with the plan. How has the markets changed for the past 12 months and how well we navigated those changes. Anything new that need to be incorporated into the plan if markets dynamics have changed. These are all questions we have for ourselves and we believe you should ask yourselves too. Happy holidays and may the coming New Year bring you greater joy and fulfillment.
