No one can deny the feeling of uneasiness with regards to the dollar, the markets are holding their breath. If the USA defaults on a loan payback the results could be catastrophic for the dollar and cause it to fly in a downwards direction against other currencies. However, if the USA does not default, it could cause a huge relief rally.
My plan until D-Day is to keep trading against the dollar. My method of trading incidentally means that if it does go against me I’ll only lose a small amount of PROFIT, as my trades are on 21 pip moving stops.
It looks like the USD cannot go much lower, USDCHF has space but GBPUSD is right at a top. But new tops can be set very easily in this type of environment.

Be careful out there.
