    Hi there :)

    On Friday, Feb 19th, at 08:30 am New York Time we will have Canadian Core Retail Sales m/m coming out. It is expected to read 0.4. Last month it read 0.0.

    Please read what this indicator means and how it affects the USD/CAD by going to this link: http://www.forexpeacearmy.com/forex...-descriptions/7615-canadian-retail-sales.html

    This is not a big mover, especially when we have U.S. reports at the same time.

    The trigger for this indicator is 0.7. This means that if Canadian Core Retail Sales m/m comes out at 1.1 or higher, USD/CAD will probably go down by 30 pips or more in the first 45 minutes of the report. If it comes out at -0.3 or more negative, USD/CAD will probably go up by 30 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.

    In addition to the Canadian Core Retail Sales m/m number, we will have regular Canadian Retail Sales m/m coming out. If they conflict, I recommend skipping the trade, but usually they don't conflict, since core retail sales is part of regular retail sales, except it doesn't include volatile items such as energy and food.

    We will also have US CPI at the same time. If U.S. CPI deviates a lot, then it will also affect USD/CAD so Canadian triggers are good assuming all US CPI numbers come more less as expected. US CPI is currently not tradable although, as always, huge deviations may cause weird price actions.

    For example: on November 23rd, Canadian Core Retail Sales m/m came out at 1.1, versus an expectation of 0.4. USD/CAD went down by about 50 pips. See for yourself what happened on this chart: Forex news trading currency exchange charts

    I hope you make some money on this report.
