Monday's Outcomes

None of the three orders I placed today has been filled. I exited one order, on EFA, and am stepping away from my desk with two other orders still active, on FXE and HSBC.

EFA was in the worst shape of the three orders, with the present bid running two cents below my asking price. I saw no hope of a fill today and so exited in order to avoid over-committing if it were filled in addition to both of the others.

The bid on FXE and HSBC was a cent or so above my ask, but not sufficiently high to prompt a fill.

If I don't get the fills I want today then I'll try again on Tuesday. I shall do an add to this Outcomes post with the outcomes on the two remaining orders.

I analyzed EWG but declined to take the trade.
