Hi there :)

This is Crazy Cat writing.

On Thursday, May 27th at 08:30 am New York Time we will have US Annualized GDP coming out. This will be the second reading so it is not the best report to trade. It is expected to read 3.4. Last time it read 3.2.

Please read what this indicator means and how it affects the USD/JPY by going to this link: http://www.forexpeacearmy.com/forex-forum/economic-indicator-descriptions/7616-us-gdp-annualized.html

The trigger for this indicator is 0.5. This means that if US Annualized GDP comes out at 3.9 or higher, USD/JPY will probably go up by 40 pips or more in the first 45 minutes of the report. If it comes out at 2.9 or lower, USD/JPY will probably go down by 40 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 Annualized GDP number, we will have Core PCE and GDP Deflator coming out. Both of them measure prices and thus are inflationary indicators. If they conflict, I recommend skipping the trade but most likely there will be no conflicts.

For example: on January 29th, we had the first reading coming out. The annualized GDP came out at 5.7, versus an expectation of 4.7. USD/JPY went up by about 50 pips. See for yourself what happened on this chart:

I hope you make some money on this report.

US GDP is definitely the focus for tomorrow. However, do be careful with conflict from Unemployment Claims which can also move the market.

This site: Forex Calendar @ Forex Factory reports that US GDP tomorrow is preliminary. Other sites point to it being annualized. Which one is it please?

GDP # today

Did the market react the opposite to what was expected from this announcement today or am I completely off course. Was also watching the dollar index DX alongside USDJPY and got even more confused :)
