GBPUSD - harks back to the days when the GBPUSD rate used to be transmitted across the Atlantic via telegraph, prompting bankers, traders and businessmen to ask, "What's the Cable today?"
To be "Jubbed" is to be stopped out of a trade at the worst rate possible, only to see the market move in the original hoped for direction thereafter. For instance, suppose we hold a Short Euro-$ position at 0.8520 with a SL at 0.8550. The market moves up, hits 0.8550 (stopping us out) and then moves down to 0.8500, our original hoped for Take Profit level. We end up feeling frustrated because we've been "Jubbed" out. This term owes its origins to the "legendary" currency trader Charles Jubbs of the City of London, who had an unerring ability to place his Stop Losses at the tops and bottoms of the market. We do not know whether Mr Jubbs really existed or not - but he exists today as part of trading folklore.
How much money you put on a trade forms a vital part of the entire trade. For instance, if we correctly forecast a fall in Euro from 0.8550 to 0.8420, but put only EUR 250,000/- on the trade, we'll earn USD 3,250/- on the trade. Contrast this with a trade where our forecast goes wrong, such that we lose 20 pips on a EURUSD trade, but we have put EUR 2,000,000/- on the trade. We end up losing USD 4,000/-.
We try to indicate our choice of amount by using the following terms:
||250,000/- of the uderlying currency|
||500,000/- of underlying|
||750,000/- of underlying|
||1,000,000/- of underlying|
The first currency in any conventionally quoted currency pair. Thus in EUR-USD, Euro is the underlying currency; in USD-JPY it is the US Dollar; while in EUR-JPY, it is again Euro
These amounts can be scaled up or down (to the extent realistically possible) by the individual trader to his/ her liking.
