Hi there :)

On Wednesday, Dec 16th (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 0.2.

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

The trigger for this indicator is 0.2. This means that if US Core CPI m/m comes out at 0.3 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 -0.1 or more negative, 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 US Core CPI m/m number, we will have US Core CPI y/y, Regular CPI m/m, and Regular CPI y/y numbers coming out. If there is a conflict between any of these number, I recommend skipping this trade, though the conflict is highly unlikely. In addition to that, we will have Building Permits & Housing Starts coming out. A deviation on CPI of 0.2 or more is extremely rare, so if it happens, it will most likely overshadow the other two reports, so you can ignore them.

To read my after-spike retracement strategy for this report click here:

For example: on October 16th, US Core CPI m/m came out at 0.3, versus an expectation of 0.1. USD/JPY went up by around 43 pips. See for yourself what happened on this chart: Forex news trading currency exchange charts

As always, wait for my email this Friday, where I will review all successful trades of the week.

I hope you make some money on this report.
