### Live Stream Starts here ###

as it seems: today will be a VERY Slow day! as basically half of the world is on Bank Holiday.
not available to trade right now: GOLD, DAX Futures, DXY, Nikkei
plus the leftover Symbols may have very unstable Spreads due to the non-existence of Liquidity, so today is Majors-Only.

if somethings “Spikes up or down” while you in the trade -> TAKE IT !! (as on low liquidity even small orders can move prices very easy)

10:45Buy EURUSD
