At 8:30 am EST Canada will release Core CPI and Core Retail Sales. It's very risky to trade it due to the potencial conflict between them so i suggest to skip it.


Have a niece weekend and see you next week.

At 4:00 am EST Germany will release Ifo Business Climate. Expected at 105.6 after a prior of 104.7. I suggest to skip this one because we are in a low liquidity period.


At 4:30 am EST the UK will release Retail Sales Ex. Gasoline. Expected at 0.3 after a prior of 0.8. Use FNG and set it up on GBPUSD with a trigger of 1.0 or higher. 


At 10:30 am EST the US will release Natural Gas Inventories. We will check expected number tomorrow, prior is -51 Bcf. Based on Energy Metro Desk (25 estimates) we have: 


Range: 26 Bcf

High estimate: -52 Bcf

Low estimate: -78 Bcf

Average: -60.1 Bcf

Standard deviation: +-5.14 Bcf


Use FNG and set it up on Natural Gas with a trigger of +-8 Bcf.


Good luck everybody!

At 4:30 am EST the UK will release Claimant Count Change together with Asset Purchase Facility and Bank Rate votes. I suggest to skip this one due to the potencial conflict between them.


At 8:30 am EST the US will release Core CPI. Expected at 0.1 after a prior of 0.2. Use FNG and set it up on USDJPY with a trigger of 0.3 or higher.  


At 14:00 EDT the US will release their Interest Rate decision, Economic Projections and Statement. Expected at 0.25 after a  prior of 0.25. Use FNG and set it up on USDJPY with a trigger of 0.25. No change is expected but the Statement may provide some volatility. Don't miss the FOMC Press Conference at 14:30 pm EDT, you can watch it live here: http://www.ustream.tv/federalreserve


At 16:45 EDT New Zeland will release GDP q/q. Expected at 0.7 after a prior of 0.7. Use FNG and set it up on NZDUSD with a trigger of 0.3 or higher.

At 3:30 am EST Sweden will release its Interest Rate decision. Expected to hold at 0 after a prior of 0. If you want to give a try i suggest a trigger of 0.10 basic points. Use FNG and set it up on USDSEK or EURSEK and don't forget to reverse the signal (positive data sells-negative data buys).


At 4:30 am EST the UK will release CPI y/y. Expected at 1.2 after a prior of 1.3. Use FNG and set it up on GBPUSD with a trigger of 0.2 or higher.


At 5:00 am EST Germany will release the ZEW Economic Sentiment. Expected at 20 after a prior of 11.5. I suggest a trigger of 15 or higher. Use FNG and set it up on EURUSD.


Note that  FNG works very well for european releases, with a minium delay respect to US, Canada or Australian reports. 


Good luck everybody!

At 8:30 am EST the US will release Core Retail Sells Ex Autos. Expected at .1 after a prior of .3. Use FNG and set it up on USDJPY (reference currency) with a trigger of 0.7 or higher.  


At 10:30 pm EDT the US will release Natural Gas Storage. We will check expected number tomorrow a couple of minutes before the release. Prior number is -22 Bcf. Based on 23 analysts and traders surveyed by Energy Metro Desk we have: 


Range: 37 Bcf

High estimate: -23 Bcf

Low estimate: -60 Bcf

Average: -40.52 Bcf

Standard deviation:  11.2 Bcf


Looking at the deviation of the last two weeks that was higher than 10, in which the market has only moved 30 or 40 pips with a fast retracement i suggest a trigger of +-10 or higher. Use FNG, set it up for Natural Gas and remember: higher than expected means Sell and vice-versa.


Good luck everybody!

At 3:00 pm EDT New Zeland will release their Interest Rate Decision. Expected to hold at 3.5 after a prior of 3.5. Use FNG and set it up on NZDUSD with a trigger of .25. The Rate Statement may provide some volatility. Straddle not recommended.


At 7:30 pm EDT Australia will release Employment Change and Unemployment Rate. You can focus on the change. Expected at 15.2K after a prior of 24.1k. Use FNG and set it up on AUDUSD with a trigger of 20K or higher. This release will be subject to the Australian delay. Straddle not recommended due to the potencial conflict.

At 4:30 am EST the UK will release Manufacturing Production and Industrial Production. You can focus on Manufacturing Production. Expected at .2 after a prior of .4. I suggest a trigger of 2.0 or higher. Use FNG and set it for GBPUSD if you want to give a try. If you have another autoclick and it has multireport resolution you can trade both reports together with a trigger of 1.5 or higher. Industrial Production is expected at .2 after a prior of .6. Straddle not recommended. 


Good luck everybody!

Introducing.........

Most of you already know him......I'd like to introduce Andres Gonzales as your new blog writer. Andres has written the Natural Gas plan

for us going on two years now. He is from Mallorca Spain and has been trading forex for 5 years. Andres is 32 years old and is an electrician

by trade. He is knowlegable in technical analysis, support & resistance, fibonacci, trend analysis, charting, divergence, candle formations,

consolidation periods, and a little MT4 programming. Over time, he has traded with 3 well known auto click services and he knows how to call

the triggers. He is prepared to offer suggestions on other non auto click news such as ECB Press Conference or GBP Inflation Reports. Andres

trades as a hobby using Active Trades in the UK hosted on his New York VPS. His job may not allow him to be in the room for every trade, but

he will post the trade suggestions. I will step in from time to time to host a few news events.

 

 

Meanwhile if any of you have any experience with this robot being advertised on ebay, please email me with a review. If anyone is inclined

to purchase it and then review, I would appreciate it. It is an after spike trading robot:

Friday December 5th 2014 - The Jobs Report

Posted by wingstar on December 4, 2014 at 11:40 PM Comments comments (2)

At 8:30 am EST the US will release the change in Non Farm Payroll and Unemployment rate.  At the same time Canada will release their Employment change and Unemployment rate.  I will focus on the NFP.  Expected at 231K after a prior 214K.  I will set up on USDJPY with a trigger of 30K.  Those of you who have the capability to also trade the Canadian Employment change, might consider a trigger of 30K.


Good Luck Everybody!

At 7:00 am EST the UK will release their Interest Rate Decision and Asset Purchase Facility.  I suggest you try to trade both if your software allows.  I recommend a .25 trigger on expectations that the interest rate will hold at .5 and I recommend 25 billion pounds as a trigger for APF.  Higher number on APF sells GBPUSD.

 

At 7:45 am EST the ECB will release their interest rate decision.  Expected at .05 (which is almost free) I don't expect a change here but you can input .05 as a trigger on your FNG.  Look for a move during the news conference at 8:30am EST as there has been a buzz around that for some time now. Trade any Euro pair. Big brave speculators go short EURUSD on expectations of quantitative easing.

 

Those wishing to try Canadian PMI at 10:00 am EST should discuss a trigger in the trade room as I have not traded it in years.  USCAD

 

Natural gas traders at 10:30 am EST should use a trigger of 5 unless Andres has an update in the room suggesting any change.

 

I will host NFP on Friday.  See you there.

 

Good Luck Everybody!
