Well there has not been a whole lot of updates and I have been sticking to the weekly time frame until this eur/usd death trap I got myself into blows over. It has been good though because it made me open up to a new strategy involving index options.

Well as the U.S. and DXY move higher this week, the eur/usd and usd/cad stayed sideways to down. This has been a pretty monstrous move in foreign currencies against the USD, especially with the eur/usd. Anyway I have not touched a single position and am trying to wait it out for capitulation. As you see in the recent videos I am still sitting down about 30% all week with this 100 pip range we have been stuck sliding around in.

I have been working on a tool that futures traders can use to see at what price they would have a margin call. It works for long and short positions as well as any futures product as long as you have the necessary information about buying power requirement and how much of the underlying 1 standard lot controls.

I am trying to get back to daily overviews of trading and what is going on in the world of trading as my current positions has had me bogged down now for over 2 weeks without making any adjustments or changes. It's all good though. Right now the worst case scenario is happening and I still have well over 50% margin in forex and have some interesting options stuff going on.

Well as I was testing a new arbitrage type forex setup with real money I ended up getting myself into trouble and long story short the result was being long way too big in the eur/usd. Luckily it was at such a low and now I am just holding on as it starts to rally back finally.

Well here was my mindset on Monday. I thought the eur/usd and gbp/usd were going up. So, I structured my trade where I was long 0.06 eur/usd and short 0.04 gbp/usd and 0.04 eur/gbp. Little did I know that the eur/usd hedged leg would move so much that it really wasn't a mean reverting position and ended up mirroring whatever happened in the eur/usd rather than all 3 sides of the hedge.
