FOREX VIDEO – London Session Review – August 14, 2009


We were kind of direction less for the most part on the majors as we neared the London open today. However, just prior to London opening we had the beginning of a British Pound selloff against all comers. The initial break of the price trap did not offer the high quality pullback we were looking for, so it was fairly easy to miss this nice move, unless you were very aggressive and sold simply at the hesitation.
