Now onto this week’s news highlights that will have an impact on your currency and commodity trading week:

  • China’s quarterly GDP and year over year Industrial production. Chinese production may see a steady slow down as overall global demand continues to weaken and could see GDP fall below the forecast of 7.2%.

Growth will continue to be a struggle behind the back drop of less than stellar data from euro zone, Asian and western economies.

HSBC Flash Manufacturing PMI – The index may reveal itself to be a hair above 50, but there would be no surprise to see it a hair below as we could see signals of contraction on the Asian horizon.

  • The Aussie – Monetary Policy Meeting Minutes – Will the release of meeting minutes reveal that the RBA (Reserve Bank of Australia) continues to send mixed messages regarding future rate increases?

Quarterly CPI – The Aussie CPI figure looks to be in check and in line with the previous measurement of .5%.

RBA Governor Steven speaks – He may hint towards a bit of tightening that may prove prudent in housing market lending. As the hot housing market may see some cooling, limiting over exposure may be be key by limiting loan-to-values and reviewing bank stress tests against any down turn swing in the housing market.

  • The Kiwi – New Zealand’s quarterly CPI and Trade Balance – The Kiwi may be longing for commodity inflation that will help ease pressure. At this point, even though the annualized CPI is anticipating to hit the over all target rate, it appears that the current down pressure may continue to remain for the time being and haunt the Kiwi.
  • The Euro – French and German Flash Manufacturing PMI. Both of which will continue to see contraction, but could be edging up a bit in spite of sluggish growth that continues to plague euro zone economies. The euro zone PMI releases will dominate this week’s euro pairing movement.
  • The Sterling – The MPC Asset Purchase Facility Votes  and Official Bank Rate Votes – These minutes should reveal that the vote holds steady on asset purchases.

Month Over Month Retail Sales – Could we see retail sales dragged down by the hard pressed euro zone economies? Most likely, the impact will be felt through the remainder of the year as euro zone developments could cloud any rays of sunshine in job and wage growth, that may be attempting to streak through.

Quarter over quarter Preliminary GDP.

  • The Loonie – Canadian month over month Wholesale Sales, Core Retail Sales and Retail Sales. All of which may reveal slight weakness from previous month’s figures.

BOC Monetary Policy Report, Rate Statement, Overnight Rate and BOC Press Conference which we can anticipate staying steady in light of economic market concerns. Caution will reign supreme.

  • For the USD – Existing Home Sales that are looking for a slight rebound from last month’s figure of 5.05 million which missed the mark.

Month over month Core CPI and CPI

Unemployment claims that are looking for a downward stretch closer to 250k.

New Home Sales – We look to see numbers hedge lower than last month’s actual figures of 504k but will be around the forecast target of 473k.

Volatility is here for now and that’s the way we like it. This has trader’s, like yourself,  dancing with countless opportunities for profit.

The Currency Pairing Conundrum

The currency pairing predictability conundrum

You’re sitting at your computer and crack your knuckles in anticipation of a profit producing trading session. You log on to your account and have your trading platform ready to go. You think to yourself is this the right currency market to trade? Is this the right pairing that’s going to put me “in the money”? Do I have the right strategy for this currency pairing?

If you’ve ever questioned your trading approach before you even got started, guess what… you’re not alone! It does not matter whether you’re a seasoned trader or just starting out. We all have experienced times of anxiety where we have questioned our moves in pursuit of a profit making trade.

Let’s keep it real. There are countless combinations of currency trading that can formulate success or failure. The many combinations could include:

  • Time frames you trade the market
  • Your entry points
  • Your exit points (and slippage) on the forex market
  • Your expiry’s on the binary option market
  • Your charts and trading platforms
  • Appropriate indicators
  • Currency pairings
  • Strategies and systems

These are all decisions that you have to make each and every trading session in order to execute a trade. All  in hopes that you made the right decisions that will successfully produce a profit and put you “in the money”.

On this post we are going to focus on the currency pairing conundrum.  An integral part of your trading success will be based on the currency pairings that will best accommodate your strategy.

Due to the nature of volatility in the currency markets, predictability is an important key that  will keep you “in the money” over and over again. The truth is, that points of predictability are more prevalent with certain currency pairings, than with others, based on the strategy or system you’re trading.

Imagine yourself capturing, harnessing and riding this pony of predictability as you stride into the horizon of profit.

There are currently five main currency pairings that are dominant when it comes to the all important key of predictability. (Of course, a caveat: there are always going to be exceptions in trading other currency pairings that can have you taking advantage of market movements. These can be anticipated based on fundamental analysis of events that affect the pairing.) Always bear in mind the economic season of the year and the various regional and global events that affect the currency pairing.

The current predominant currency pairings for trend, behavior and range trading predictability are as follows:


(Although these last two pairings have more of  a trend to lean towards unpredictability, more so than the other 3, during your trading day).

With the Scottish independence vote now in the rear view mirror, we may be able to anticipate that the GBP/USD pairing will also find its way to a much more predictable pattern; moving forward as we approach the upcoming  new year.

As you well know, volatility is what drives the market. When a tremor of volatility hits, you want to make sure that you are set up with the right currency pairing, at the right time with the right strategy that lines you up on target to be”in the money”.

This is when the system you’re trading, becomes critical for your profit making success. Small Money Made Big trading systems signal to you the best opportunity for success. Our guidance will direct you to the best currency pairing for that system. The predictability features that are embedded into the systems will have you succeeding on your trades many times over.

We want you to succeed. Being equipped with the knowledge, along with a Small Money Made big trading system, will boost your profit making potential straight to the moon!
