Another sought after UK economic data.

I decided to place my straddle with the following details: –

GBPUSD; Stop if Offered at 1.3323, Spot at 1.3344, Stop if Bid at 1.3365

Claimant count came out worse at negative 5.9K versus forecast of 3.3K, and previous month was revised upwards to negative 6.5K from 1.1K. Bad situation in the employment scene in the UK.

Unfortunately, the GBPUSD spiked upwards and triggered my stop if bid and before I could do anything, it fell and hit my stoploss at 1.3344, so I ended up with a small loss of 21bps……………such is life!
