I also did a trade on the USDJPY but not a straddle trade, instead, I just took an off chance view that the NFP could come in weaker and placed my bets on the JPY as follows: –

USDJPY: Stop if Offered; 108.53, Spot; 108.83 with SL; 108.80

As it turned out NFP came in very weak and my out of the money trade was triggered.

I squared the EURUSD earlier, and kept the USDJPY trade alittle longer and got out half an hour later at 107.45 for one big figure trading profit of 1.08!!!

Best part about it was I got out of this trade while in a lounge with friends drinking wine.

Here is wishing all a great TGIF – Thank God It’s Friday!
