I think that we are still in an uptrend and that's why I prefer the upforks. I am trading against the trend what makes it risky. Perhaps it is not wise at all to trade against the trend. On the other hand I've done good deals betting on retracements. But I have no statistics of whether the countertrend deals really brought a substantial add to the profit at the end as a whole. Perhaps one should do this. What is your experience?
As for the statistics, mine show that if you try to fight the trend, you'll be better off, if you stick to the above mentioned rule. :-)
But as due to the very good dealing results this year I tend to increase the position sizes for the other pairs too and I think I have to do a bit more statistical research here as well then.
