us dollar Forex News Analysis US Core CPI m/m 04/13/12We´ll be trading US Core CPI m/m release tomorrow. CPI or Consumer Price Index, also known as the “true cost of living”, is what drives Central Banks to raise/cut interest rate, therefore this release will be widely watched. Here´s the forecast for the CPI:

8:30am (NY Time) US Core CPI m/m Forecast 0.2% Previous 0.4%

The Trade Plan
Our minimum tradable deviation for this release is 0.2%; if the release number (core) decreases to a minimum 0.0% then we will BUY EURUSD. Historically even at a difference of 0.1%, market is likely to exaggerate its move, therefore if our tradable release is hit, there is about 80% of chance market will move 50 pips within the next 90 minutes or so.

For more information on my trading methods:

The Market
Following the pessimistic reaction over last week’s NFP, USD is likely to remain in consolidation, and we should look to trade in the direction of SELLING USD, especially also considering the Weekly Jobless Claims numbers…

Additional Thoughts
With Fed’s mandate on both Unemployment and Inflation, today’s CPI may not be enough to change Fed’s view on their monetary policy, therefore I believe the effect may be short-lived.

Pre-News Consideration
No Pre-news for this release.
