Trading the News: European Central Bank Interest Rate Decision (based on dailyfx.com article)

  • European Central Bank (ECB) to Keep Rate at 0.50%; Forward-Guidance in Focus
  • President Mario Draghi to Sounds More Dovish; Which Non-Standard Measure is Next?

The European Central Bank (ECB) is widely expected to adopt a more dovish tone for monetary policy as the Governing Council remains poised to implement more non-standard measures in 2014.

What’s Expected:
Time of release: 12/05/2013 12:45 GMT, 7:45 EST
Primary Pair Impact: EURUSD
Expected: 0.25%
Previous: 0.25%
Forecast: 0.25%

Why Is This Event Important:

Given the recent headlines surrounding the ECB, there may be little in terms of new surprises as the Governing Council looks at a range of policy tools (Negative Deposit Rates, Long-Term Refinancing Operations, and Quantitative Easing), but the Euro may struggle to hold its ground following the policy meeting should President Mario Draghi layout a more detailed schedule for its easing cycle.

Bearish EUR Trade: ECB Lays Out Detailed Easing Schedule

  • Need to see red, five-minute candle following the decision/statement to consider a short Euro trade
  • If market reaction favors a short trade, sell EURUSD with two separate position
  • Set stop at the near-by swing high/reasonable distance from cost; at least 1:1 risk-to-reward
  • Move stop to entry on remaining position once initial target is met, set reasonable limit
Bullish EUR Trade: Governing Council Adopts More Neutral Tone
  • Need green, five-minute candle to favor a long EURUSD trade
  • Implement same strategy as the bearish euro trade, just in the opposite direction




Potential Price Targets For The Rate Decision

  • Continues to Threaten Trendline Support; Head-and-Shoulders Formation?
  • Bearish Break in Relative Strength Index to Provide Confirmation/Conviction
  • Interim Resistance: 1.3650-60 (78.6% expansion)
  • Interim Support: 1.3290 (50.% retracement) to 1.3300 Pivot

BoE Leaves Rates Unchanged; Osborne Upgrades GDP Outlook

The Bank of England left its key policy rates unchanged on Thursday, while Chancellor of Exchequer George Osborne said in his autumn statement that the economy is better placed than they had expected early this year.

In his 2013 Autumn Statement, Osborne said Britain's economic plan is working and the hard work of the British people is paying off. The economic growth forecast for 2013 was more than doubled to 1.4 percent from 0.6 percent, he told lawmakers.

According to estimates by the Office for Budget Responsibility, the economy will grow 2.4 percent next year, up from the 1.8 percent projected in March.

Trading the News: U.S. Non-Farm Payrolls (based on dailyfx article)

  • U.S. Non-Farm Payrolls to Climb 185K, Unemployment Rate to Narrow to 7.2%
  • NFP(OCT) Topped Market Forecast for the First Time in the Last Four Prints

The U.S. economy is expected to add another 185K jobs in November and a positive development may highlight a bullish outlook for the dollar as it raises the Fed’s scope to taper the asset-purchase program at the December 17-18 meeting.

What’s Expected:

Time of release: 12/06/2013 13:30 GMT, 8:30 EST
Primary Pair Impact: EURUSD
Expected: 185K
Previous: 204K
Forecast: 160K to 200K

Why Is This Event Important:

A further improvement in the U.S. labor market may spark a more material shift in the policy outlook as the Fed retains its forward-guidance for monetary policy, and we may see a growing number of central bank officials show a greater willingness to move away from the easing cycle.




How To Trade This Event Risk

Bullish USD Trade: NFP Increases 185K+; Unemployment Slips to 7.2%

  • Need to see red, five-minute candle following the print to consider a short trade on EURUSD
  • If market reaction favors a long dollar trade, sell EURUSD with two separate position
  • Set stop at the near-by swing high/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
Bearish USD Trade: November Job Growth Disappoints
  • Need green, five-minute candle to favor a long EURUSD trade
  • Implement same setup as the bullish dollar trade, just in the opposite direction

Bitcoin Gets Valued: Bank Of America Puts A Price Target On The Virtual Tender

Today, Bank of America became the first major finical institution to initiate analyst coverage of Bitcoin.

But Bitcoin is highly volatile. Thursday alone it hit a high of $1,240 before tumbling down to $870 on news that the Chinese government has restricted banks from using it. The value is back up to around $1,100 since that early morning low.
