It was a tight race for the pips this week as the GBP finally reached exhaustion and the CAD continued to show weakness. In the end the weak Canadian dollar was just too much, despite a small rally on Friday. For the 2nd time in a row we have only one winner. Alman7000 had the USD/CAD at +170. Kudos and salutations to Alman7000.

So who will be the best this weekend? A quick recap of the rules for anyone new giving it a shot. The contest is just for glory and bragging rights. What we are looking for is the pair that moves the most pips in the coming week. Since many people may choose the same pair, we are looking for the correct pair and the one who gets the closest to total pips moved up or down at the close on Friday. Note: you must specify + or – no playing the field. Entries must be received before the Auckland open on their Monday (i. e., 9:00 NZDT/20:00 GMT). As always reasons for your pick and/or charts encouraged. Only entries on the “major” pairs above count.
