    ADP Non-Farm Employment Change
    Forecast 102K
    Previous 157K
    Pair to trade: USD/JPY
    Triggers we need: BUY 45 SELL -45

    Economical Impact: High
    Typical Result: Actual forecast is good for the currency
    Occurrence: This data Released monthly, about 2 days after the month ends.

    About our Triggers:
    If US Non-Farm Payroll Employment Change number comes out at +60 or less USD/JPY should go down by about 40 pips. We are using triggers of -45 for short.
    If it comes out at +170K or better USD/JPY should go up by about 30 pips. We are using for +45 trigger for long.

    Why do we care?
    ADP provides payroll services to many Businesses in the US. They use the data collected from their customers to derive the overall employment estimations. Job creation is an important leading indicator of consumer spending, which accounts for a majority of overall economic activity.

    Method to trade this: Stavro D’Amore Trading Method
    Please keep in mind possibility of Revision number before entering any of these strategies.

    Prior to the release (2-3 mins) I will be looking for a short term short position in USD/JPY and I will get out of this trade 30 seconds before the actual release or any spreads that should widen.

    I'd recommend spike trading as the best option when there is great uncertainty in the markets; also the liquidity is very good at the moment if you’re using an ECN broker.

    I will look for a 50% retracement in the original spike before entering a trade; I will sell half my position as soon as I hit the original high point of the first initial spike, and place a SL at entry price. My TP level would be Just before a resistance level or if the chart decides to form a level looking at a 15 min time frame.

    Hi Stavro, your explanations are excellent, but i cannot accurately follow your numbers:
    forecast+45= 147 (not 170)
    forecast-45= 57 (more or less 60)
    Am I missing sth?
