@marvin.oliver - I appreciate you letting me know. They often take posts from my blog. Following up on your question on the order boards - first of all many thanks to everyone for your contributions. It is a shame Forex Live don't upload them anymore but as Nick mentioned it was something Mike Patterson did when he was there. Mike is someone David and I know and have met & back in the day was a 'market maker' on the floor of the Liffe here in London. The levels are simply levels where the institutions may (and I emphasize the word 'may') be looking to buy and sell and oftentimes are pulled at the last minute. This is what is known as 'spoofing' which is against exchange regulations but it still goes on. These orders are always at round numbers - zero & five which is why price can often pause at these price points on the chart.

UK consumer price index data for July are due on Wednesday, when investors anticipate inflation will edge up to 0.6 per cent.

The eurozone, France, Germany and the UK all have flash PMI surveys on Friday, when the figures are expected to continue to improve, but worries about an increase in Covid-19 cases and companies laying off more workers are likely to weigh on sentiment.
