Open position over weekend

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I am wondering if you can help me calm my blood pressure.

Just started learning how to trade and left a long position open by mistake today and did not manage to close - GBP/CAD.

Is there any way to close it or minimise the risk of losing money.

My account is not big at all but I am most worried about losing more and/or going on a negative balance.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Best regards!

Hi, you won't be able to change anything until the fx market reopens at 9pm Sunday (UK time), all you can do really is to keep an eye on the Weekend ftse market which opened at 4am Saturday (this morning). GBP and Ftse tend to have an inverted correlation so if ftse starts going up you might want to go long in that market as a hedge against GBP going down.

But if there is no major market moving news over the weekend you will probably find the market reopens with little change.

    • Some excuse is needed for a pullback ...
    • The spike down in indices in the last hour was the same ol' trade war news, China stating they are less optimistic than the US and feel they have been mislead by recent talks where they felt they had agreement over a rollback of tariffs that the US now say is not the case. After 18 months of this you should be use to it by now. 
    • Dax, Nikkei and FTSE100 remain below recent (past 2 weeks) turning points and we have seen an interesting recent bearish candle in play on US large caps, a potential spike and retrace back down, which could signal rally exhaustion.  In the case of the Dow and Nasdaq this occurred with an overshoot of the 4H chart rally channel and in the case of the Nasdaq also the Daily and Monthly long term resistance trend lines (overshoot and quick retrace being a particular signal of an exhaustion phase).  In the case of the SP500 this has occurred with a hit right on the Daily resistance trend line and rejection, so far at least.  As I have mentioned before: with volume relatively weak and seemingly in a down trend; and with COT net long positions weak and weakening (not what one would expect of a breakout rally); and with Gold/Silver rallying; and with NMD at the turn points on all markets and as USDJPY has also taken a similar bearish hit; the odds of a bearish phase are good and the risk reward is decent. I am already Short Dax and FTSE100 off the previous turns but money where my mouth is this time on SP500, as the exposure is tiny, I am Short off the hit and turn on the daily trend line with tight stops just above.
