Little happened across the FX board these last few days, with a US holiday in the middle and a scarce macroeconomic calendar exacerbating the lack of action. Such picture changed Friday with the release of the US Nonfarm Payroll report. Ahead of it, the market was convinced that the global economic slowdown would mean easy money coming.

"I've traded with your free Forex signals for almost a month now and so far so good. It is the first time that i copy forex signals, and honestly, it is so much better than trading by myself. I am actually enjoying it. I could not believe that someone was giving away free signals that actually worked!

Keep up the good work"Siddhart Mohan , South Africa

So I was thinking for a long time about this current move of BTC. WTF is BTC doing here, it should still "rest" in 2019 and start the bigger upmoves in early 2020, a few months before the halving.
