While You Were Watching… Germany v Portugal 16th June, 2014

June 17, 2014

Germany v Portugal June 2014

Why we got out of bed for this match?

For those in the Southern hemisphere, this was either a very late night or an extremely early morning game. For Australians watching the game, they were either staying up or getting out of bed for this 2am game. For those who set their alarm, the game proved extremely disappointing or extremely gratifying with Germany upsetting the Portuguese with a 4 nil win. The game was not without drama, antics and well, a head-butt from Pepe.


The Anticipation Points

  • Thomas Mueller – Winner of the Golden Boot, South Africa 2010
  • No. 2 FIFA Ranking Team
  • 3 time Cup winners and 4 time runner-ups
  • Cristiano Ronaldo – World’s highest paid footballer, albeit injured
  • No. 4 FIFA Ranking Team
  • Additional pressure of having not beaten Germany in major match ups
  • Who’s up at 2am?

    For Australians, trading at 2am is normally kept to the reserves of Expert Advisor robots and the addicted. Nevertheless, here is a chance get in on the market action live as it happens. Looking at the session map below, one can see the New York session is right in the throes of it, whereas the London session will be ready to start. With a game that generally runs over its 90 minutes and a fifteen half-time break, there’s definitely a chance to take a peek at your trades.
