Trading News Events: U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI) (adapted from the article)

  • "Despite forecasts for a downtick in the U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI), stickiness in the core rate of inflation may boost the appeal of the greenback and spark a near-term pullback in EUR/USD as it puts pressure on the Federal Reserve to raise the benchmark interest rate sooner rather than later."
  • "The growing risk of overshooting the 2% inflation-target may spur a larger dissent within Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), and we may see a growing number of central bank officials push for a 2016 rate-hike especially as the U.S. economy approaches ‘full-employment.’ "


Bullish USD Trade

  • "Need red, five-minute candle to favor a short EUR/USD trade."
  • "Implement same setup as the bearish dollar trade, just in the opposite direction."
Bearish USD Trade
  • "Need green, five-minute candle following the print to consider a long position on EUR/USD."
  • "If market reaction favors a bearish dollar trade, buy EUR/USD with two separate position."
  • "Set stop at the near-by swing low/reasonable distance from entry; look for at least 1:1 risk-to-reward."
  • "Move stop to entry on remaining position once initial target is hit; set reasonable limit."


Daily price is located above 200-day SMA in the bullish area of the chart. The price is breaking 100-day SMA to above from the ranging area to the bullish trend to be resumed. RSI indicator is estimating the bullish market condition to be continuing.

  • If D1 price breaks 1.1220 resistance level together with ascending triangle pattern to above on close daily bar so the primary bullish trend will be continuing.
  • If price breaks 1.1045 support on close daily bar to below so the reversal of the price movement from the ranging bullish to the primary bearish trend will be started.
  • If not so the price will be ranging within the levels.

DAX Index Technical Analysis: daily bullish ranging within narrow levels waiting for breakout/breakdown (adapted from the article)

Daily price is on primary bullish market condition: price is testing 10,739.3/10,803.8 support levels to above for the bullish trend to be continuing.

  • "The mutli-week rally in the DAX is showing signs of momentum slowing, with the net change amounting to basically zero since shooting higher by 2.5% last Tuesday. Yesterday’s small reversal day created a little doubt heading into today, but no significant resistance has yet been met, so the minor decline off yesterday’s highs looks likely to be short-lived before another push higher takes shape."
  • "The area around 10900 is targeted before a more meaningful decline may set in; 10876 represents the 12/29 high, while not far above lies the upper parallel to the trend-line extending off the 2/11 low under the 6/24 ‘Brexit’ mini-crash low. Trend-line support below 10600 is viewed as the next best spot to look for the DAX to turn higher. If it doesn’t, then support should come in around the April peak just beneath 10500. If the advance is to continue towards the next objective surrounding 10900, then the DAX shouldn’t fall much beneath the April high."
If the price breaks 10,407.8 support level so the local downtrend as the secondary correction within the primary bullish trend will be started.
If the price breaks 9,666.1 support level to below so the reversal of the price movement from the primary bullish to the primary bearish market condition will be started.
If the price breaks 10,803.8 resistance level so the price bullish trend will be resumed.
If not so the price will be ranging within the levels.

[USD - CPI] = Change in the price of goods and services purchased by consumers.

  • "The energy index fell 1.6 percent after rising in each of the last four months. The decline was due to a sharp decrease in the gasoline index; other energy indexes were mixed. The food at home index declined 0.2 percent as four of the six major grocery store food group indexes decreased, while the index for food away from home rose 0.2 percent."
  • "The index for all items less food and energy increased 0.1 percent in July after rising 0.2 percent in June. The shelter index rose 0.2 percent, its smallest increase since March, and the indexes for medical care, new vehicles, and motor vehicle insurance also rose.

NZD/USD Intra-Day Fundamentals: New Zealand Jobless Rate and 41 pips price movement

2016-08-16 22:45 GMT | [NZD - Unemployment Rate]

if actual < forecast (or previous one) = good for currency (for NZD in our case)

[NZD - Unemployment Rate] = Percentage of total work force that is unemployed and actively seeking employment during the previous quarter.

==========

From Scoop article: NZ jobless rate falls to 5.1% under new methodology

  • "New Zealand's unemployment rate fell more than expected in the second quarter as Statistics New Zealand adopted a new way of measuring the labour market to bring the country in line with international practices, and while a growing economy continued to support jobs growth. The kiwi dollar jumped above 73 US cents after the release."
  • "The jobless rate declined to a seasonally adjusted 5.1 percent or 131,000 people, in the June quarter from a revised 5.2 percent rate in March, the government department said in a statement. Economists polled by Reuters predicted a rate of 5.3 percent, though the new methodology means comparisons with earlier periods aren't easy to make. The participation rate of 69.7 percent was up from 68.8 percent in March."
  • "Statistics NZ introduced a new under-utilisation measure in the survey to provide a measure of the potential labour supply, including workers who may want more hours, those who want a job but aren't actively looking or available to take a job, as well as officially unemployed people. The underutilisation rate was 12.7 percent, with 106,300 employed people wanting to take on more hours, and another 109,500 who aren't officially unemployed but are either potential or unavailable job seekers."

Trading News Events: Trading the News: U.K. Jobless Claims Change (adapted from the article)

  • "Even though U.K. Jobless Claims are projected to increase another 9.0K in July, signs of stronger wage growth may keep the British Pound afloat, with GBP/USD at risk of staging a larger recovery should the data tame market expectation for additional monetary support."
  • "The Bank of England (BoE) is widely anticipated to further embark on its easing cycle this year as ‘a majority of members expect to support a further cut in Bank Rate to its effective lower bound,’ but the central bank may move to the sidelines after delivering the comprehensive easing packing earlier this month especially as Governor Mark Carney rules out a zero-interest rate policy (ZIRP) for the U.K."


Bullish USD Trade

  • "Need green, five-minute candle following the print to consider a long GBP/USD trade."
  • "If market reaction favors buying sterling, long GBP/USD with two separate position."

  • "Move stop to entry on remaining position once initial target is hit, set reasonable limit."
Bearish USD Trade

  • "Implement same setup as the bullish British Pound trade, just in the opposite direction."


Daily price is located below 100 SMA/200 SMA in the bearish area of the chart. The price is on ranging within the narrow support/resistance levels waiting for the direction of the bearish trend to be continuing or the seconary bear market rally to be starte.

AUD/USD Ahead of Employment Data - intra-day bearish; daily breakdown with correction (adapted from the article)

"The AUD/USD continues to decline from yesterday’s high at .7749. This move in price has been guided by a descending trendline, which is drawn below by connecting a series of swing highs over the last two trading sessions. Aussie traders should continue to monitor this line ahead of today’s employment data as an ongoing point of resistance. Expectations for AUD Employment Change (July) figures are set at 10k, and any deviation from this value may result in a significant shift in the short term pricing of the AUD/USD."

M15 price is on bearish market condition for 0.7614 support level to be testing together with ascending triangle pattern to below for the bearish trend to be continuing.

Today’s primary bearish distribution is found at .7596. A move through this point would place the AUD/USD at both new weekly and daily lows."
