Trading News Events: U.S. Consumer Price Index (adapted from dailyfx)


  • "A pickup in the U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI) may heighten the appeal of the dollar as the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) appears to be on course to further normalize monetary policy in 2017, but a marked slowdown in the core rate of inflation may drag on interest rate expectations as the central bank persistently warns ‘market-based measures of inflation compensation remain low; most survey-based measures of longer-term inflation expectations are little changed, on balance.’"
  • "Recent comments from Fed Chair Janet Yellen suggests the committee may pay increased attention to the developments in the core rate of inflation as the central bank head argues ‘inflation moved up over the past year, mainly because of the diminishing effects of the earlier declines in energy prices and import prices,’ and the FOMC may continue to endorse a wait-and-see approach at its next interest rate decision on March 15 as ‘considerable uncertainty attends the economic outlook.’ With that said, signs of softening price growth may produce near-term headwinds for the greenback, but the dollar may continue to gain ground throughout 2017 as Fed Fund Futures continue to highlight a greater than 60% probability for a June rate-hike."


Bearish USD Trade: CPI Report Instills Mixed Outlook for U.S. Price Growth

  • "Need green, five-minute candle following the CPI print to consider a long EUR/USD position."
  • "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."

Bullish USD Trade: Headline & Core Inflation Beat Market Expectations

  • "Need red, five-minute candle to favor a short EUR/USD position."
  • "Implement same strategy as the bearish dollar trade, just in reverse."

Dax Index: Daily bullish trend to be continuing with 11,892 level as new target high (based on the article)

Daily price is located above Ichimoku cloud in the bullish area of the chart: price is continuing with the bullish trend by 11.808 level to be broken for the 11,892 level as the new daily target.


  • "Levels to watch on the top-side start with the Jan high at 11893, and then just above there we have to go back to a swing high created in May 2015 at 11920 and a month before that at 12079. We’ll focus first on those levels, worry about the record 2015 high at 12391 later should ‘momo’ really kick in."

, we said the DAX (CAC, too) looked poised to continue trading higher. That sentiment hasn’t changed, but upon approach of the Jan highs and beyond we’ll take interest in how the market reacts to those levels. If Europe begins to mimic the U.S. (S&P 500), then levels up there could become levels down there, real fast. But while we don’t expect...

Dax Index: Intra-day hourly correction (based on the article)

Intra-day H1 price is above 200 SMA in the bullish area by the bouncing from 11.844 resistance level to below for the secondary correction to be started with 11.656 support level as a bearish reversal target. Alternative, if the price breaks 11.844 resistance level to above on H1 close bar so the primary bullish trend will be resumed.


  • "Looking to the hourly chart, the surge starting last week is morphing into a sharply angled channel which could help keep short-term traders guided on the right side of the tape. Even if it were to break the structure a bit by moving outside of it, as long as higher highs and higher lows continue to etch themselves out then there isn’t good reason to be a hero here trying to find a top. Again, though, for day-traders it’s a different story, but will still likely to find it easier to be on the bid rather than the offer for the time-being."

General Motors: breakout with the daily bullish reversal (based on the article)

GM share D1 price is on breakout by crossing Ichimoku cloud to above: the price was bounced from 34.67 support level to above for the 37.40 resistance level to be testing for the bullish trend to be continuing. 


  • "General Motors never will be Caterpillar, John Deere or even Dow Chemical, all selling at high teens multiples and never needing a bailout from the U.S. Treasury. Nobody cares that GM yields 4.3% on a 30% payout of earnings, sells at a modest premium to book value, at 6 times earnings and 10 times free cash flow."
  • "If $6 a share is peak earnings this cycle, assume $3 in a mediocre year and zilch in a recessionary setting. This gives me $3 a share in average earnings power next 3 years, far below management’s forecast of over $6 a share 2017. They expect $15 billion in auto operating cash flow and $6 billion in free cash flow. This puts the stock at 9 times free cash flow and under 4 times operating cash flow, what a news stand goes for."
  • "GM's market share started its elongated slide late sixties from a 48% share, falling to 44% in the seventies, then 40% in the eighties. It dropped alarmingly to 32% in the nineties and pretty much bottomed out at 17% currently. They sold over 3 million cars domestically last year, 3.6 million total in North America."

GBP/USD - bullish daily ranging with symmetric triangle pattern to be formed for the direction ofthe trend to be started (based on the article)

The price is on ranging above Ichimoku cloud within the narrow support/resistance levels:

  • 1.2581 resistance level, and
  • 1.2346 support level.

Symmetric triangle pattern was formed by the price to be crossed for the direction of the trend, and the price is breaking this pattern to above for the bullish trend to be resumed if 1.2581 level is broken to above on close daily bar. 


"Recent GBP/USD action is consistent with a range but perhaps within a new trend (higher). The area around 1.2400 (55 day average, former highs and lows) should still be watched for support. Weakness below (daily close) would put the year open at 1.2278 back on the map. Daily highs from late January cluster around 1.2600 and is where I’d watch for near term resistance."
