  1. No Yass, got stopped out. I will concentrate on my short USD/CAD trade which is more or less the same view/strategy. My timing on AUD in recent weeks has been catatrophic

  2. With all those long AUD stops being triggered, this market looks surprisingly short (intraday) – very reminiscent of last week. .8650 now taken on significantly more important value to the bulls. Are we seeing a SHS forming on charts – feel a short squeeze is in order and we see a rise to 0.8830 …. but down is the clear direction in my view
