CASE 1: Not a good idea to raise interest rates with weak GDP growth. CASE 2: Inflation rate of 2% is rather sweet; why mess with it? For CASE 1, is there a...

If you can identify when a market is trending and not ranging why would you want to take profits in a trending market? Why not just follow the trend with some form of trailing stop?

Both CHF and EUR are currently correlated with Gold as an "anti-dollar" trade, although, paradoxically, EUR is a proxy for risk-taking and CHF is a proxy for safety. This relationship implies that EUR may decouple from gold as the macro concerns around Ireland, Spain, Greece, etc., put pressure on ...

Two ideas - first, try to develop some method of identifying when markets are ranging, independent of your BB system signals, and only take your BB signals when this method indicates a ranging market.
