UK CPI y/y | September 12, 2017 | Forex Strategy

Event Details At-A-Glance:
2.9%2.8%2.6%0.3%

UK CPI y/y release could definitely be a market mover and considering recent weakness in the USD, GBP is definitely positioned for further gains if we were to get a strong (3.0%+) of reading as a strong inflation figure is definitely a positive sign and the single most important reason for BOE to take action.

4:30am NY Time UK CPI y/y Forecast 2.8% Previous 2.6%
DEVIATION: 0.3% (BUY GBP 3.1% / SELL GBP 2.5%)

The Trade Plan
We are looking for a variable deviation of 0.3%. If the Inflation number remained above 3.1%, we will BUY GBP. If the Inflation number decreases to 2.5% or less, we´ll look to SELL GBP. Historically, even with a slight difference of 0.1%, market usually overreacts. If our deviation is hit, there is a strong possibility that the market will move 50 pips immediately.

We´ll be looking to trade this release using my after-news retracement method. We´ll wait for the release, wait for market spike, and then wait for a decent retracement before jumping in.

I’d recommend to use the Recommended Pairs from above as they are based on my CSM, which should provide the best combination of currency pairs to trade based on better/worse news… of course, you can also trade the default pair: GBPUSD.
