Close GBP/USD Short 1 @ 1.6235

P&L : -115

The BoE decided not to increase it's QE so the currency surged. I think I made the classic mistake of getting stung by the "sell on the rumour, buy on the fact".

Taking a break while I still have some profit left

Update 20/07/09 : A cleverer trade would have been to sell Gilts with a tight stop as if the BoE had decided to press ahead with more QE gilts would have jumped whereas to not expand their QE decision did cause a drop of over 3 pts.
