    This is sometimes a good opportunity to go into buy mode, but at the same time, we got to be seriously careful of not doing anything silly or else we could suffer serious losses, I am lucky enough to work with OctaFX broker and with them, I am always in serious benefits which is because of their lovely rebate program where I am able to earn 15 dollars profits per lot size trade including the losing one, so that’s fairly enough for me.
