Before I continue Part 2 of August recap, here are the zones I’m looking into. I’ve entered some stop orders to 4 of the pairs already since I’ve figured the US FOMC minutes report 2 days from now won’t make much impact on the greenback this week (no need to be worried about being whipsawed), while the rest I’m still in wait-and-see mode and would enter trades after the relevant economic news release on the scheduled time below (in GMT +8):
