Hi there :)

On Thursday, March 18th (08:30 am New York Time) we will have US Core CPI m/m coming out. It is expected to read 0.1. Last month it read -0.1.

I still believe it's a waste of time but in case if you missed my email a month ago I am mostly going to repeat myself.

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

The trigger for this indicator is 0.4. This means that if US CPI m/m comes out at 0.5 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 -0.3 or more negative, USD/JPY will probably go down by 30 pips or more in the first 45 minutes of the report. 95% chance it will not deviate by at least 0.4, and the reason why I am giving such huge trigger is because I don't want to trade it but if I don't list this report, I will get a lot of emails asking why.

A deviation of 0.4 is highly unlikely to see but if we see it, that would be really weird, and therefore the price may move. Feel free to skip it... :)

This used to be a hot report two or three years ago but right now it's not so important. One day it will be important again but I want to see it performing well first before I decide to put real money on this report. Right now I prefer to stay away, but of course that's my opinion and feel free to do whatever you want, as always.

Last month a deviation of -0.2 produced a move of about 20 pips so it's kind of encouraging it reacted at all. It's still not enough, in my opinion, to take it seriously.

I agree with crazy cat... If you check the graphs for the last year you can see it is difficult to trade this one...
