Hi there :)

This is Crazy Cat writing.

On Friday, April 30th at 09:42 am New York Time we will have US Chicago PMI coming out. It is expected to read 60.0. Last month it read 58.8.

If anything, I recommend trading USD/JPY for this report.

This report is not a hot anymore, plus the number is released at 9:42 to a special subscriber list. I don't really recommend to trade it but if you must, feel free to trade it.

Please read what this indicator means and how it affects the USD/JPY by going to this link:

The trigger for this indicator is 7.0 This means that if Chicago PMI comes out at 67.0 or higher, USD/JPY will probably go up by 25 pips or more in the first 45 minutes of the report. If it comes out at 53.0 or less, USD/JPY will probably go down by 25 pips or more in the first 45 minutes of the report.

Obviously, the bigger the difference between expected and actual numbers, the bigger will be the move.

To read the after-spike retracement strategy for this report click here:

For example: on Jan 29th, US Chicago PMI came out at 61.5, versus an expectation of 57.2. USD/JPY went up by around 30 pips. See for yourself what happened on this chart: Forex news trading currency exchange charts

I highly recommend you study the entire history and charts of this report by following this link: Forex News Trading | Details and History for USD Chicago PMI

Again, in order to get the number at 9:42, not 9:45, you need to have a special news subscription that I don't personally have so I will not trade it myself. Besides, currently it does not make a lot of pips anyway so feel free to skip it as well.

That's all for this week, have a good weekend!
