    Started today, so I think you're too late now.

    Its currency trading, and I think only Uni students could join.

    i thought so too but after looking at a couple of graphs on previous currency trends, i noticed certain times when one of them stayed constant and thought maybe this was a time period when the market was closed. Was a bit of a silly question though i guess :yep:
    market closes in the weekend

    +7% or so. I watched a couple of videos on fibonacci retracements but it's all very hit and miss since I don't really have much of an idea what's going on.

    Hmm. Don't know about you, but I'd rather be a lucky trader, than a good trader.

    Whatever the term is, it in now defunct.

    And if what I'm talking about happens, I won't make any short term loses, or long term either, for that matter
