Euro Dollar NovemberI could not understand why the Euro has fallen 100 pips in a few hours without really relevant news for markets.
Lately there have been times in which quotations eur / usd fluctuated in limits without explanation. It seemed that someone is playing with bid and ask. A few days instead I have had confirmation of what I imagined.
Five banks were fined for price rigging malpractice real meaning in its own interest. We are talking about banks that trade amounts to more than 8 digits and manages cash deposit accounts for most mid-level brokers

I’d like to understand why major variations occur per Eur / Usd in the absence of really important events.
Euro Dollar winning chart Since a variation of 300 pips 10:1 leverage loss (or gain) would be $ 3000, it is clear that the risk taken should be reasonable. if you lose money, there is the temptation to increase your leverage to the next transaction to recover the loss. Risk management in this case recommend that every transaction will not commit more than 15-20 margin and the possible loss of more than 5% of the capital. If it remains at the 5% is like you have other 19 tokens in 20 tries. Probability go wrong transaction is 50% but the market can turn. Therefore it is better to set strategy for both gain and especially the loss. If you win more is better and there are no limits, to lose is limited to the capital paid and it’s very frustrating.
The winning strategy is therefore to decide BEFORE a transaction which is the maximum amount that you want to set the “stop loss”
Happy Trading !

Speaking again about Drupal, today was announced a maintenance release, 7.25 which mostly isĀ  fixing issues underlined by contributors. This release also fixes some missing links in documentation and minor bugs. 

Here are some major changes since previous release (7.24) as in Drupal 7.25 release notes:

  • Performance improvement: Prevented block rehashing from writing blocks to the database on every cache clear and cron run when the blocks have not changed. This fix results in an extra ‘saved’ key which is added and set to TRUE for each block returned by _block_rehash() that actually is saved to the database (data structure change).
  • Fixed a bug which caused cached pages to sometimes be sent to the browser with incorrect compression. The fix adds a new ‘page_compressed’ key to the $cache->data array returned by drupal_page_get_cache() (minor data structure change).
  • Fixed broken tests on PHP 5.5. Continue reading »
