This week's trade theme was NZD and RBNZ.

The RBNZ failed to deliver to the 5 day interest rate rule as RBNZ interest rates traded less than 5 basis points in 5 days. The RBNZ informed long before the statement to on hold for OCR.

But did we really need the 5 day rule for the NZD trades to work perfectly. No we didn't as math rules dominated the actual weekly trades. The trades and results below as posted.



Long 0.6394 and 0.6383 to target 0.6496.

Low 0.6378, High 0.6479.

Trade runs from 0.6383 +96 pips and 17 pips to target.
