CA Employment Change | March 10, 2017 | News Trading

We´ll be getting the Canadian Employment Change release figure today and since it’s being scheduled at the same time with US Nonfarm Payroll Report, I’d caution traders to pay attention to both releases as NFP has stronger impact on the market as a whole. 8:30am (NY Time) CAD Employment Change Forecast -15.0K Previous 48.3K 8:30am […]

U.S. stocks slip as investors brace for Trump’s address to Congress

Wall Street could be in for a rude awakening if President Donald Trump’s pro-business agenda fails to pass muster. The buoyant market reflects investors’ anticipation for the reforms outlined by Donald Trump on the campaign trail, but Congress will need to turn those promises to cut corporate taxes and slash regulations into actual legislation…

UK Retail Sales | February 17, 2017 | Currency Trading

US NFP (Nonfarm Payroll) Employment | February 3 , 2017 | Currency News

US NFP is expected to be around 170K, and with recent releases showing a positive trend, Fed rate hikes, and Trump bulls, any stronger than expected release should continue to support USD strength.  Unless we get a much weaker figure today, I’ll not trade against USD for an extended period of time. 8:30am (NY Time) […]

Japan exports rise for first time in 15 months to 5.4% y/y in December

Japan’s exports rose for the first time in 15 months in December on strong sales of electronics and car parts, a positive sign for the export-reliant economy even as U.S. protectionism threatens to hurt trade across the region and dent external demand. Ministry of Finance data showed on Wednesday that exports rose 5.4 percent year-on-year in December, compared with a 1.2 percent annual increase expected by economists in a Reuters poll…

OPEC signals decreasing supply surplus this year, but U.S. supply rebound possible

OPEC signaled a falling oil supply surplus in 2017 on Wednesday as the exporter group’s output slips from a record high ahead of a deal to cut supply and outside producers show positive initial signs of complying with the accord. However, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, in a monthly report, also pointed to the possibly of a rebound in U.S. output, as higher oil prices following supply cuts by other producers support increased shale drilling…

CA Employment Change | January 6, 2017 | News Trading

We´ll be getting the Canadian Employment Change release figure today but once again US Nonfarm Payroll is scheduled at the same time, so I’d recommend trading the US release, or at least focus on that one first and then on this release if you see more volatility with CAD. 8:30am (NY Time) CAD Employment Change […]

US NFP (Nonfarm Payroll) Employment | January 6 , 2017 | Currency News

US NFP is expected to be around 165K, and with recent releases showing a positive trend and the fact Janet Yellen practically told us that rate hike will happen this month, we should not see much surprises if we were to get around the expected figure or better.  However, if the figure is much worse […]

UK Retail Sales | December 15, 2016 | Currency Trading

UK Retail Sales should be a good release to watch, but with BOE’s rate decision coming up in just a few hours, I would only trade if we get our tradable deviation. 4:30am (NY Time) UK Retail Sales Forecast 0.2% Previous 1.9% DEVIATION: 0.5% (BUY GBP 0.7% / SELL GBP -0.3%) The Trade Plan The […]
