Dusting off some code for this oldie-but-goodie. Why we don’t buy a Friday high/sell a Friday low.

That ‘never buy a Friday high’ is of course a @JamieSaettele original. Here’s a key reason why it’s true:

Price & Time: GBP/USD Squeezes Higher - What Now?
By Kristian Kerr, Sr. Currency Strategist
08 September 2015 16:00 GMT
US traders have come back to their desks this morning after a three day weekend to find GBP/USD has retraced all of last week’s decline. Given where we closed on Friday (i.e. through various levels of support including the 50% retracement of March - June advance) the move is clearly perplexing to many. M&A flows have gotten the blame, but I chalk it up more to short-term cycles and the US bank holiday. There is an old saying in FX that goes “never buy a Friday high” (or sell a Friday low). This probably goes double for cable ahead of a three day weekend as if there is any “pain trade” to sniff out in thin conditions the interbank market will usually find it in sterling.
