    Hi there my Forex friend :)

    Hi-Quality Preview/Review:

    Long-term Outlook:

    Let's first review what happened on Tuesday.

    At 4:30 a.m. we had UK CPI and we were going to trade against it. This strategy worked perfectly well. We had nearly 50 pips spike up and then we had price reversal. We made a good money on the Diamonds room.

    German ZEW came out much lower than expected and it behaved similarly to the UK report. Price spiked down by over 30 pips and the price reversed.

    At 8:30 a.m. we had a few U.S. reports. U.S. Retail Sales came out too close to expectations so it was a no trade.

    Canada did not change rates so it was a no trade.

    We had a very interesting price action during Bernanke speech. Please watch the video for more details.

    Let's talk about Wednesday.

    1. Wednesday, July 16th, 2008 (4:30 a.m. New York Time) UK
    At 4:30 a.m. we will have U.K. Claimant Count Change which is expected to come out at 10. I would trade it with 5 deviation. If it comes out at 15 or higher, this would be bad for GBP so I would sell GBP/USD and expect 30 pips price action. If it comes out at 5 or lower, it would be good for GBP and I would buy GBP/USD and look for 30 pips as well. We will also have Average Earnings Index and if this comes higher it is good for GBP and if it comes out lower it is bad for GBP. 0.3 deviation would be significant but over time the focus has been shifted from Average Earning Index to Claimant Count Change although avoid conflicts here.

    2. Wednesday, July 16th, 2008 (5:00 a.m. New York Time) UK
    At 5:00 a.m. we will have CPI out of Euro zone. This one is not tradable (because this is a final revision).

    3. Wednesday, July 16th, 2008 (8:30 a.m. New York Time) USA
    At 8:30 a.m. we will have U.S. CPI. LIke with the U.K CPI, we might see a nice spike up but we may also see a nice retracement so you may want to sell a potential top (or buy a potential low). Inflation itself is bad for the U.S. dollar although hiking interest rates would be good for the U.S. dollar. That's why CPI is tricky to trade. Because of that, there are no official triggers although if Core CPI m/m comes out at 0.3 or higher, you may try to cash fast profit on sell EUR/USD or GBP/USD but get out quickly after 35 to 50 pips move and reverse your transaction. If it comes out at 0.1 or lower, you might want to buy GBP/USD or EUR/USD and reverse as soon as the price moved 35 to 50 pips. My main focus will be on entering the opposite direction, not spike entry. If there are conflicts, it should help to turn it around. Please watch the video for more details.

    4. Wednesday, July 16th, 2008 (9:00 a.m. New York Time) USA
    At 9:00 a.m. we will have U.S. TIC coming out. This might be tradable but I would like to see this report performing better before trading it on my own account. I will not be trading it.

    5. Wednesday, July 16th, 2008 (9:15 a.m. New York Time) USA
    At 9:15 a.m. we will have U.S. Industrial Production. It is expected to come out at 0.1%. If it comes out at 0.6% or higher we might see 15 pips price action so you may want to buy USD/JPY for a quick scalp if spread was very small. If it comes out at -0.4% or lower, you may want to sell USD/JPY and expect 15 pips move as well. Because profit target is so small, this will not work if your broker raises spread so officially it is a no trade.

    If you made a good money based on my yesterday signal, please let me know and leave feedback. On the Diamonds room we took 7 trades on Bernanke speech, making 6% of profit. It was a good day.

    PLEASE ALSO WATCH Sir Pip's longer term outlook videos, links are always provided at the beginning of this post. A lot of people found them very useful. If you have any comments regarding that videos, please leave a comment. Sir Pips is working hard to improve our free tools so more and more people can benefit from them.

    That's all for Wednesday.

    If you are interested more in trading news, go to Forex Diamonds - News Trading Education where Sir Pips or Magister Pips are trading all of mentioned indicators live. Join the room, and get a lot of education from me and other traders that are there. They post trade plans and talk about the trades as well as they give entry and exit signal live while the market moves. You can try it with no risk for 21 days so if you don't like it it is free. If you find it useful, then you can stick with us and make grow you live account with us. I am pretty sure you will be satisfied but at least give a try. Worst case scenario, you will learn something and get all your money back.

    Thank you and good luck with your trades.

    To Our Success!
    -Sir Pipsalot & Crazy Cat

    SNW is as good as it was a few weeks ago when I was mentioning about it a lot. THe difference is that time I was writing signals by myself and now I am just writing based on Sir Pips videos (with little modifications). Sir Pips is more focused on regular trading and afterspike trading whereas I was focused more strictly on the spike trading. Just different trading styles. If I had more time, perhaps I would add my own comments but recently I even had a problem to send signals early. This is going to change a little since next week so at least daily signals will be posted earlier. Regarding focusing more on the SNW trading, I don't know if I will be doing that, I have to think about it.

    Thanks,
    Crazy Cat
