I have a user request to set up for Norweigan Unemployment rate at 4:00 am EDT.  The trigger is .2 and the reference currency is EURNOK where a higher numbers buys and a lower number sells.


At 8:15 am EDT the US will release the ADP report.  Expected at 234K after a prior 281K,  I will set up on USDJPY with a trigger of 50K


At 8:30 am EDT the US will release Advance GDP (this is the good one).  Expected at 3.1 after a prior -2,9,  I will set up on USDJPY with a trigger of .4 long and .5 short (good data will react better).


At 2:00 pm EDT the US will release the FOMC statement which may result in some tradable volitility. Don't bother with the rate decision as that is months or likely over a year away.


Good Luck Everybody

Last Minute User Request - Wednesday Evening EDT

Posted by wingstar on July 23, 2014 at 7:00 PM Comments comments (5)

I apologize for not making it to the NZD rate decision, but I see it was a no trade.  My debit card number was stolen and used frauduently online and I was stuck at the bank trying to resolve it.


At 9:45 pm EDT China will release HSBC Flash Manufacturing PMI.  I have a user request to set up on AUDUSD with a trigger of .5

At 5;00 pm EDT New Zealand will release their Interest Rate decision and Statement.  It is expected that the RBNZ will increase the interest rate from 3.25 to 3.50.  I will set up on NZDUSD with a trigger of .25.  If the RBNZ holds the rate at 3.25, we will sell, and if they increase to 3.75, we will buy.  If they increase the rate "as expected" we will have a "no trade"


Good Luck Everybody!

Tuesday July 22, 2014 - I'm Back!!

Most of you "regulars" knew I was on vacation this past week and spike trading went on as usual.  I was unable to access an internet connection the entire time I was gone.  I thought for sure I would be able to post the trade plan on a daily basis, but I was either way up in the mountains or far out in the country.


At 9:30 pm EDT Austraila will release CPI and Trimmed Mean CPI.   Since trimmed mean CPI comes out first, we must focus our attention there.  I recommed a simultaneous set up on CPI and Trimmed mean CPI with a trigger of .3.  Australian delay is in play.  If you worry about getting two clicks, just trade half your normal position.


Good Luck Everybody!

At 7:00 am EDT the UK will release their Interest rate decision and Asset Purchase Facility.  We will trade both simultaneously.  The rate is expected to hold at .50 and the APF is expected to hold at 375 billion pounds.  I will set up on GBPUSD with a trigger of .25 for the rate and 25 B for the APF.


Andres was unable to get any data for the Natural Gas Trade at 10:30 am EDT but he recommends we maintain the summer trigger of +/- 5


Good Luck Everybody!

At 9:30 pm EDT Australia will release their Employment Change and Unemployment rate.  We will trade the change.  Expected at 12K after a prior -5K, I will set up on AUDUSD with a trigger of 20K.  Straddle trading may be in order as this trade is subject to a delay.


Good Luck Everybody!
