Forex Signal (Mon, Jan 04, 10:00 am EST) US ISM Manufacturing

Hi there :)

On Monday, Jan 04th at 10:00 am New York Time we will have US ISM Manufacturing Index coming out. It is expected to read 54.0. Last month it read 53.6.

I recommend trading USD/JPY for this report.

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

The trigger for this indicator is 2. This means that if US ISM Manufacturing index comes out at 56.0 or higher, USD/JPY will probably go up by 30 pips or more in the first 45 minutes of the report. If it comes out at 52.0 or lower, USD/JPY will probably go down by 30 pips or more in the first 45 minutes of the report.

At the same time, we will have three other reports coming out. They are ISM Manufacturing Prices and Construction Spending. I think ISM Manufacturing Prices and Construction Spending can be ignored although, as always, if there is a big conflict, I recommend skipping the trade.

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 November 2nd, US ISM Manufacturing Index came out at 55.7, versus an expectation of 53. USD/JPY went up by over 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.

Anyway i ve a question:what is more important?the difference between the new result and the forecast or the difference between the new result and the previous?

Private, 1st Class

thx for the free signals for major events - the UK PMI worked great but i had real troubles with the US MSI - i waited for a possible retracement for 5 minutes so i decided nope long trade - and that bamm :unhappy: so now i have to wait out a break even or at least some few pips ....

any tips of how to avoid that ..... you are talking about to wait one candle (spike) to see whats going on - yeah but on what timeframe - if there are 'only' 45 minutes for a proper move i gues it shouls be smaller than 15M shouldn't it ?

but hey you are the fist one who delivers an event based service for free so again Thank you and keep on the good work ...

cheers - ahab666

Did I miss something with the 1-4-10 10am us/JPY trade.
It appears that it traded exactly opposite of what you predicted.
My understanding was that if the report was 2 or higher it should go up.
The report was 1.9 higher than forcast and it went down perfectly, what am I missing?
Please help
Thanks for everything this wonderful site provides
Happy new year>
