    Hey folks,

    Due to the bullish price action we've seen due to the increased risk appetite and positive sentiment on the EUR/USD, we've rallied to a point where EUR/USD looks like a pretty good sell on the daily and 4hr charts near the top of a potential wedge or consolidation range, so I'm getting short here on EUR/USD between 1.2850 and 1.2890 (now 1.2873) and using a 50-80 pip SL looking for 70-150 pip TP down.

    EUR/GBP continues to rally, but may be in for some trouble near term, so if you got long with me around 0.8240-50, take some partial profits near here (now 0.8356) if you haven't already. Ultimately I'm looking for a rally to around 0.8600, but it won't be a one way street and may take awhile.

    In news Monday, we saw NZ Retail sales come out only a bit low, but we still saw similar downward price action to what was described in Monday's signal with 50 pips down so far. In news Tuesday:

    0430 UK CPI y/y headline (3.0% expected) - This report has gone sleepy with no deviations since May of this year, and even then there wasn't a large move. However, UK news has been hot in the past couple of months, so my plan is to trust a 0.2% deviation for a solid retracement trade, but let a 0.1% deviation go unless there are other reasons to get in.

    --If it comes out at 3.2% or higher, GBP/USD should rally 40-50 pips in 1-3 minutes, and have a good chance of a second surge higher after a 50% retracement.

    --If it comes out at 2.8% or lower, GBP/USD should fall 40-50 pips in 1-3 minutes, and have a good chance of a second drop lower after a 50% retracement.

    0500 German ZEW Economic Sentiment (10.0 expected) - This report does not have a good recent track record, but if a 7-10 deviation is hit, it will usually spike for about 30 pips. Aside from a spike trade, I don't think it's worth trading given the other factors on the Euro right now.
    If it comes out at 20.0 or higher, EUR/USD should rally 30 pips quickly.
    If it comes out at 0.0 or negative, EUR/USD should fall 30 pips quickly.

    0830 US Retail Sales Ex Autos m/m (0.3% expected) - This report should hit 35-50 pips in the first few minutes if a trigger is hit, and if there's a decent (~50%) retracement in the first half hour, it should be worth a trade as well.
    If it comes out at 0.8% or higher, USD/JPY should rally 40-50 pips.
    If it comes out at -0.2% or lower, USD/JPY should fall 40-50 pips.
