I'm back from my regularly scheduled deployment.
It took a couple of weeks to get back into trading after essentially 5 months of no access to my currency platform, and severely limited internet access for stock and options trading.
Here's a couple of pics and a video from my latest jaunt throughout the Pacific:

On Thursday I was able to pull 98 pips by shorting Aussie against the US Dollar. I use a 4 hour chart, with a 200 period moving average as a trend direction indicator. I'm using Parabolic SAR as an entry trigger when price action is below the 200 MA.
I had good luck with this during my summer break, and my first trade back is validating the strategy for me.
