Hi there my Forex friend :)

Hi-Quality Preview/Review:

Long-term Outlook:

Let's first review what happened earlier today.

At 12:30 a.m. we had Australian Interest Rate statement which come out as expected but due to comments we sold AUD/JPY on the Diamonds room.

At 2:00 a.m. we had UK Nationwide House Prices and German Retail Sales. Nether of them hit my trigger so that was a double no trade. GBP/USD moved up by about 15 pips so nothing really important.

At 4:30 a.m. we had UK Manufacturing PMI which came out at 45.8 versus 49.8 expected. It was a first time in a while we had some price action (36 pips) going on but the deviation was really big and even with that GBP/USD retraced by 100%.

At 10:00 a.m. U.S. ISM Manufacturing came out much higher than expected: 50.2 versus 48.5 expected. Also, ISM Manufacturing Prices deviated a lot: 91.5 versus 87 expected. USD/JPY spiked up by about 40 pips, and then it retraced a lot.

At 9:30 p.m. we had Australian Retail Sales which came out much higher than expected. It came out 0.7% versus 0.1% expected. There was some rumors hinting that the number would actually be low so it was quite a surprise here. AUD/USD spiked up by 35 pips and then it was trading range.

Let's talk about Wednesday: only one tradable report is coming out.

1. Wednesday, July 2nd, 2008 (8:15 a.m. New York Time) USA
At 8:15 a.m we will have ADP Employment Change which is expected to come out at -20. I would trade 50K trigger here. If it comes out at -70K or more negative, I would sell USD/JPY and look for 30 pips price action or so. If it comes out at +30 K or better, I would look to buy USD/JPY and expect 30 pips move as well. We may see more price action since on Thursday we will have U.S. Non-Farm Payroll. However, don't expect a home run on this.

I also encourage you to watch a special video where Sir PIps is talking about long term trading. The link is provided at the beginning of this post. WE FIXED THE VIDEO FILE SIZE so I hope this time it is going to work much better. Thank you for all the feedback we received.

That's all for Wednesday.

NFP almost always comes out first Friday of month, however because this month's first friday falls on holiday, July 4th, NFP is coming out 1 day early. Another BIG report that USUALLY comes out first friday of every month is Canadian Employment Change. However just so happens that this month its coming out 2nd Friday. CPI's, GDP's, Employment Changes, Retail Sales, along with some interest rate decisions are but a few reports that come out about same time each month.
