After Mario Draghi speech last Thursday EUR/USD seen the strongest move in the last 6 years. Many investors betting on further move south got trapped on the wrong side of the market. What did they do? Big investors do not have stop-loss orders on their charts. They need to manage losing trades accumulated to often large bets. They could try to push the price lower to fade the upward move made in panic triggered by ECB. Eventually, they could have waited until price will slide on its own. However, two days have passed and on the third day price is going up again. What else they can do? In my opinion, they can unwind shorts and accept that loss.
