US Prelim GDP release is the second release for the 1st quarter of 2017, which is expected at a slight improvement from the previous release due to a slowing economy. If we get a surprise today, we should see plenty of market reactions to this release, and I believe a surprise to the upside has higher impact and we should see more market reaction in that front.
Considering what FOMC Statement on May 3 stated, where “…growth in economic activity slowed.” I would not hold my breath on a blowout figure today, but considering recent USD dips, a positive surprise will move the market, and a negative surprise means stay away.

The Trade Plan
I’d recommend to use the Recommended Pair above as it is based on my strength meter by pairing up the best currencies in the event of a better/worse news… or you can just use the default pairs for this news: USDJPY or EURUSD
We’ll be trading this release using an after-news retracement method. For more information on my trading methods, please read: https://www.currencynewstrading.com/how-to-get-started-with-news-trading/
