Day 515: Great NFP

Profit: -$5.96 Total: $718.45

Employment number came out much better than expected of 227k vs 170k but it took a while for the markets to react accordingly. The data initially drove the dollar a bit up but was quick to sell it back off. Eventually the dollar ended the day with the dollar much lower. It was very interesting to see the reaction of the dollar bears so strong even after a spectacular jobs number.

I had some troubles with the tricky dollar and chased the wrong side (long). At the end of the day when dollar was selling off, I switched sides and shorted it at the retracement. Today was a tricky day and I definitely should’ve been more patient and not have a data bias.
