Going ling on GBP/USD


Recommended Posts

HI, a question of a newbie. Currently (as at 5.45 on 17th Sept) according to the client sentiment, 71% are going long on GBP/USD. I know the meaning of going long. But does it mean clients are holding on to their long positions in the hope the the GBP will rise on Monday, or 71% bids within a particular time period had been long and now been closed? I am holding on to my bids praying the GBP will start rising tomorrow by any miracle since I am about to run out of funds. Though I had studied the 5 year chart, the speed of decline within a one afternoon wasn't anything that was clear in a 5 year chart, and being a newbie I though ever would be possible unless something on the scale like Putin  declaring war against NATO happens. Do people think the GBP will turn back before the support level is reached or will fall below the support level 1 this evening when the Asian markets starts? 

Is buying a short position with the same number of contracts to stop further loss (in the event of the GBP falling further, and closing it as soon as the GBP reach back the opening position of my short bid) a good idea? Though my losses will be stopped at the current level, and I have enough funds to buy the same number of contracts on Short position, due to leverage I do not know (and reluctant though I want to do) whether I can do it. Can those in the know please tell me since I need to do it (if within my ability) before market start later on Sunday?

Hi there, I hope this helps.

You cannot rely on the statistics as a basis for trading, as IG don’t provide you with details of the volumes or the age of the deals that are being used as a basis for the calculations. For instance, some traders may have held very high value positions for a long time and may be content to sit on large positions because they have hedged them elsewhere.

You have to assess your own position to see if the assumptions you made when you entered the trade still hold true based on your own risk appetite, not on the incomplete statistics that are used as a proxy for market sentiment.

Good luck!

    • Crypto trading is a bit complicated when it comes to understanding the dynamics in profit making. Some people are more inclined to technical analysis which of course has been the widely used trading tool but some are more inclined to fundamentals but sticking to fundamentals alone could be highly risky in my own opinion even though crypto is also financial instrument that often respond to news updates.  A blend of the two could provide a safety net for traders in minimizing losses compared to potential profit. The above case scenario is largely attributed to perp futures trading and other derivatives. TA and FA could also be very useful for spot trading but I feel timely listing of projects could largely determine one's profit from investing in a project. These may not be for all projects cos some are **** coins. This could be a personal perspective but I have noticed listing speed is also another important factor to consider along with project fundamentals when trading and if we are to include listing speed as a factor for choosing trade then it will affect our choice of trading platform cos some are more inclined to top cap projects while others are more inclined low cap gems.   My experience with ORDI has proven this trading skill rewarding. ORDI was first listed on Bitget before other exchange joined the listing party after it saw rapid adoption reflecting in it significant MCap growth. This chart should give us a glimpse of my experience with this strategy.
    • In a stunning display of market momentum, the PANDORA token, the first of its kind, has skyrocketed an astonishing 4872% from its introduction on February 2nd to February 7th. This remarkable performance has not only caught the attention of cryptocurrency enthusiasts but has also solidified PANDORA’s position as a groundbreaking asset in the digital currency landscape. Pandora's ERC-404 protocol revolutionizes the token landscape by seamlessly blending the qualities of ERC20 and ERC721 standards. This experimental mixed implementation enables persistent liquidity and non-fungibility for NFTs, unlocking a realm of possibilities previously unexplored. Adding to the excitement, Bitget Wallet is gearing up to introduce a specialized section dedicated to ERC-404 token market listings. This feature creates a hub for tokens that blend the best of both worlds—the liquidity of ERC-20s and the uniqueness of ERC-721 NFTs. I have come to believe that, the electrifying surge of PANDORA token and the innovative ERC-404 standard is not just a fleeting trend but a window into the future of cryptocurrency.
