[USD - NFIB Small Business Index] = Level of a composite index based on surveyed small businesses.

==========

From 247 wallst article: Small Business Optimism Slips Again in September

"Clearly the stock market loves the Fed, but bloated stock values are not real productive wealth which is created by real investment in plant, equipment, research and infrastructure, weak in this recovery. Even housing with low mortgage rates has not performed up to expectation based on demographics. It has not occurred to the Fed that what meager growth we have had has occurred in spite of government policy, not because of it. The private sector continues to perform poorly in light of the barriers that governments at all levels throw up in its path."

2016-10-12 18:00 GMT | [USD - FOMC Meeting Minutes]

  • past data is n/a
  • forecast data is n/a

[USD - FOMC Meeting Minutes] = It's a detailed record of the FOMC's most recent meeting, providing in-depth insights into the economic and financial conditions that influenced their vote on where to set interest rates.

==========

FOMC minutes: "Given the three dissents in favor of a rate hike at the FOMC’s September meeting, we expect the minutes to reveal widening divisions within the committee over the appropriate stance of policy. On one side are those who believe a rate hike in September would have been warranted given that the economy is operating near mandate-consistent levels and mediumterm risks are rising. These concerns were expressed by regional Fed presidents Rosengren, Mester, and George in remarks leading up to, and following, the meeting. On the other side are those FOMC members, primarily within the Board, who point to a slower removal of labor market slack, via trends in participation and other variables, and a lack of evidence that inflation or financial instability are rising, as supporting a further delay in policy normalization."

Trading News Events: Bank of Canada Interest Rate Decision (adapted from the article)

  • "The Canadian dollar may show a limited reaction to the Bank of Canada’s (BoC) October interest rate decision as Governor Stephen Poloz and Co. are expected to retain the current policy, but the near-term decline in USD/CAD may largely unravel should the monetary policy report fuel bets for more easing."
  • "The BoC may show a greater willingness to implement lower borrowing-costs as the ‘risks to the profile for inflation have tilted somewhat to the downside since July,’ and a reduction in the central bank’s economic projections may drag on the local currency as market participants boosts bets for additional monetary support. However, Governor Poloz and Co. may continue to advocate a wait-and-see approach as the central bank anticipates a ‘substantial rebound’ in the second-half of 2016, and the fresh comments may boost the appeal of the Canadian dollar should the committee sound upbeat this time around."


Bullish CAD Trade: BoC Advocates Wait-and-See Approach

  • "Need green, five-minute candle to favor a long USD/CAD trade."
  • "If market reaction favors a bullish loonie trade, sell USD/CAD 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."
Bearish GBP Trade: U.K. Inflation Report Falls Short of Market Forecast
  • "Need to see red, five-minute candle following the decision to consider a short trade on USD/CAD."
  • "Implement same setup as the bullish Canadian dollar trade, just in revers."


Daily price is located between 200-day SMA (200 SMA) and 100-day SMA (100 SMA) for the ranging market condition within the narrow support/resistance levels.

  • If D1 price breaks 1.3312 resistance level to above on close daily bar so the recversal of the price movement from the ranging bearish to tthe primary bullish market ccondition will be started.
  • If price breaks 1.3054 support to below on close daily bar so the primary bearish trend will be resumed.
  • If not so the price will be on bearish ranging within the levels.
