My plan was to exit my day trade position before NFP announcement. Right. I did that, and missed out bigger profit. But, well, I am not feeling frustrated over this at all. Day trading around NFP are for the ‘Professionals’ , not for me.
I was Long AUD/JPY. Not too bad. And I was happy to close the position around 30 minutes before NFP. But wait! My trading platform stalled, hanged, and died. I have to kill the application. My order was still in progress.
When I restarted the application my order was filled, at the much lower price. Oh well…. 😐
End the day with +1 R. Pretty uneventful week, though I managed to close the week in positive.
