    Hi there :)

    This is Crazy Cat with a potentially profitable trading opportunity...

    Friday, July 09 (07:00 New York Time) Canada

    We have Canadian Employment Change coming out. It is expected to read 22.5. Last month it read 24.7.

    I recommend trading USD/CAD for this report.

    Please read what this indicator means and how it affects the USD/CAD by going to this link: http://www.forexpeacearmy.com/forex...riptions/7399-canadian-employment-change.html

    The trigger for this indicator is 22.5. This means that if Canadian Employment Change comes out at 45.0 or more, USD/CAD will probably go down by 40 pips or more in the first 45 minutes of the report. If it comes out at 0.0 or negative, USD/CAD will probably go up by 40 pips or more in the first 45 minutes of the report.

    We will also have Canadian Unemployment Rate coming out. A 0.2 deviation on it is a significant deviation but the good news is typically they don't conflict each other.

    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: Diamonds Forex Trading System (Trading News After The Spike) - Forex Peace Army Forum

    For example: on May 07th, Canadian Employment Change came out at 108.7, versus an expectation of 25.0. This was a huge deviation. USD/CAD went down by over 100 pips. See for yourself what happened by seeing 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:

    I hope you make some money on this report.

    I love reading all this information and would love to get back into my trading, but have a new MAC OS computer and cannot find a trading platform compatible. Any suggestions??

    You will struggle, the only way around it i have found is to purchase & install 'bootcamp' software, which allows you the choice of booting up in OSX or windows (you have to install windows OS too). As long as your mac runs on a dual core intel processor, you should have no problems and can then use any windows or mac software, so worth the extra expense.

    News service

    Is there a news service that gives you up to the moment reads on these economic indicators just as or slightly after the report comes out?

    Spike Query

    Please Tell, if the trigger is not activated but the change is still in the favourable direction then in that case how to anticipate the intensity of the move .
    I think the pair still moves but the intensity is a bit less as compared to its movement if the trigger is hit.

    Great Work Crazy Cat
    Thanks
    Good Luck to All.

    Question about trading news

    Hey Guys;

    How do you recommend entering the trade? Do you do a trailing stop? Or do you just set a regular stop and take profit? What risk / reward ratio do you use for this kind of news trading?

    Input would be appreciated.

    What's wrong with Parallels? It works great for me, and the CPU usage is almost non-existing, especially if you just use it for trading.

    I run up to 10 platforms on one computer, and I do news trading no problem - under Parallels.

    Thanks!
