    This looks pretty peak place now, so perhaps we could gain more if we enter at pull back or perhaps we could go for reversal, but then that’s slightly riskier. I mostly play it safe and due to broker like OctaFX, it’s ever easy and nice which is to do with the outstanding conditions which counts up with small spreads, high leverages and mammoth bonus which is up to 50% and is trade able too, so that’s why I find it incredibly cool.
