Editor's note: The following is from ForexAlerts.ca . They recently launched their service and have been profitable every month since inception. Here are their trading results.

Below is from 09 July premium content highlighting a EUR/AUD trade where we shorted it and covered for nearly 300+ pips in total. Following is the review of how we helped subscribers capture those gains. I also want to elaborate on our strategy on this pair going forward.


Follow up:

When viewing weekly charts of the EUR/AUD and EUR/NZD it’s clear that the leader is EUR/AUD. The recent pullback in these 2 pairs was simply normal profit taking after a strong run up and these pairs will likely resume their uptrend any day.

Using the below ranges on EUR/AUD, when this pair trades down between those levels, then both pairs will be a buy as the long term trend resumes itself.
