Today was the first time that I kind of fudged the numbers on the psychological assessment, so that I could actually trade. I scrapped in with a score of 5 points – the minimum required to trade. A result of several cocktails with Rufus, and waking up from a nightmare at 3.30am without being able to sleep again. Thus, eventually pulled myself together, made my way to Old Street and started work at 5.15am.
Weakness returns to the Yen in a massive way – dropping from 8 to 3 points, additionally USD drops from 8 to 5 points. The points are picked up across the other currencies. GBP still strongest on 13, CHF on 11, EUR on 10, NZD on 8, CAD and AUD on 3 each.
A bit of a lighter week in terms of news this week – however Yellen speaks twice (on Tue and Thu) and Carney once (on Wed) doing the quarterly inflation report. Draghi also speaks on Wed. There is no UK news for the entire week.
