U.S. Consumer Confidence Unexpectedly Continues To Deteriorate In November

After reporting a sharp drop in U.S. consumer confidence in the previous month, the Conference Board released a report on Tuesday showing that confidence unexpectedly saw further downside in November.

The Conference Board said its consumer confidence index dipped to 70.4 in November from an upwardly revised 72.4 in October.

The decrease came as a surprise to economists, who had expected the index to climb to 72.9 from the 71.2 originally reported for the previous month.

New Zealand Has NZ$168 Million Trade Deficit In October

New Zealand posted a merchandise trade deficit of NZ$168 million in October, Statistics New Zealand said on Wednesday - marking the smallest deficit for an October month in almost 20 years.

The headline figure beat forecasts for a deficit of NZ$350 million following the downwardly revised shortfall of NZ$216 million in September (originally a NZ$199 million deficit).

"The low trade deficit was due to exported goods recording the highest value for an October month," industry and labor statistics manager Louise Holmes-Oliver said. "It was the highest value for exported goods for any month since March 2013."

Trading the News: U.S. Durable Goods Orders (based on dailyfx article)

  • U.S. Durable Goods Orders to Decline for First Time Since July 2013
  • Demands for Durable Goods Increased Six Times in 2013

Demands for U.S. Durable Goods are expected to contract 2.0% in October and a marked slowdown in private sector consumption may drag on the dollar as it limits the Fed’s scope to taper the asset-purchase program at the December 17-18 meeting.

What’s Expected:

Time of release: 11/27/2013 13:30 GMT, 8:30 EST
Primary Pair Impact: EURUSD
Expected: -2.0%
Previous: 3.7%
Forecast: -3.0% to 2.0%

Why Is This Event Important:

With the ongoing discussion at the Fed to scale back on quantitative easing, data pointing to a slower recovery may prompt the central bank to undermine the taper-timeline laid out by Chairman Ben Bernanke, and the committee may present a greater argument to carry its highly accommodative policy stance into 2014 should the fundamental developments coming out of the U.S. economy dampen the outlook for growth and inflation.

Potential Price Targets For The Release

  • Retains November Range; Carving Head-and-Shoulders Top?
  • Relative Strength Index Retains Bullish Momentum
  • Interim Resistance: 1.3530 (61.8% expansion) to 1.3580 (23.6% retracement)
  • Interim Support: 1.3290 (50.0% retracement) to 1.3300 Pivot
How To Trade This Event Risk

Bearish USD Trade: Orders for Durable Goods Contract 2.0% or Greater
  • Need green, five-minute candle following the report to consider a long EURUSD trade
  • If the market reaction favors a bearish dollar trade, establish long EURUSD with two position
  • Set stop at the near-by swing low/reasonable distance from entry with at least 1:1 risk-to-reward
  • Move stop to breakeven on remaining position once initial target is met; set reasonable limit
Bullish USD Trade: Demands Increase for the Third Straight Month
  • Need red, five-minute candle following the release to look at a short EURUSD entry
  • Implement same setup as the bearish USD trade, just in opposite direction


Although U.S. Durable Goods orders beat estimates of 2.3% coming in at 3.7%, Ex Transport and Cap Orders Nondef Ex Air missed estimates by over 2%. In the ‘bad news is good news’ psyche, EUR/USD saw some chop before heading higher as the trading week came to a close.

Trading the News: German Unemployment Change (based on dailyfx article)

What’s Expected:

Time of release: 11/28/2013 8:55 GMT, 3:55 EST
Primary Pair Impact: EURUSD
Expected: 0K
Previous: 2K
Forecast: 0K to 2K



Why Is This Event Important:


With the European Central Bank’s (ECB) December 5 meeting quickly approaching, a further deterioration in the growth outlook may put increased pressure on the Governing Council to take more unprecedented steps, and the policy outlook may become a growing proponent to drive the Euro lower as President Mario Draghi looks to negative deposit rates.

Potential Price Targets For The Release

  • Looking for Higher High or Head-and-Shoulders Top? RSI Retains Bullish Trend
  • Interim Resistance: 1.3650-60 (78.6% expansion)
  • Interim Support: 1.3290 (50.0% retracement) to 1.3300 Pivot

How To Trade This Event Risk



Bearish Euro Trade: German Unemployment Rises for Fourth Month
  • Need red, five-minute candle following the report to consider a short Euro trade
  • If the market reaction favors a bearish EURUSD trade, sell with two position
  • Set stop at the near-by swing high/reasonable distance from entry with at least 1:1 risk-to-reward
  • Move stop to cost on remaining position once initial target is met; set reasonable limit
Bullish Euro Trade: Labor Market Improves
  • Need green, five-minute candle following the release to look at a long EURUSD entry
  • Implement same setup as the bearish Euro trade, just in reverse

The EURUSD may ultimately carve a head-and-shoulders top should Germany’s Unemployment report highlight a greater threat for deflation.

Technical Analysis for AUDUSD (based on Price & Time: AUD/USD Correction or Reversal? article)

AUDUSD, M5, 2013.11.29, MetaQuotes Software Corp., MetaTrader 5, Demo


AUD/USD has rebounded sharply from just above the key support zone we highlighted on Tuesday. With the .9330 to .9360 area marking a convergence of several key Gann levels including the 7th square root relationship of the October high, the 2x1 Gann angle line of the year’s closing low and the 2nd square root relationship of the year intraday low it is a natural stopping point. Just how important this counter-trend move is will depend on the price action over the next few sessions. If Aussie can gain traction over .9170 on a daily close basis it likely sets up a stronger correction – perhaps back towards the neckline of the Head & Shoulders pattern. A potential hindrance to further upside is the short-term cyclical picture which is not particularly positive on the exchange rate as a minor turn window is seen today. A clear move under .9030 is required to signal that the broader downtrend is resuming.
