    Hey folks:

    Last week’s market was driven by the uncertainty of U.S. budget crisis that threatened a possible government shutdown. USD was trading at the lowest level in months with AUD pushing to all time highs at above 1.0580. With the passing of a temporary budget resolution, market has calmed to a degree with USD showing possible signs of recovery in the short term. As far as geopolitical situation, Libya’s Qaddafi has accepted a ceasefire agreement proposed by North Africa and is likely to cause recent rapid rising in crude oil prices to consolidate.

    As far as tradable news events for this week are concerned, we are only looking at 4 tradable releases:

    1. Tue April 12, 2011 – 4:30am EST – UK CPI y/y
    Historical Chart and Data

    2. Tue April 12, 2011 – 9:00am EST – CA BOC Rate Decision
    Historical Chart and Data

    3. Wed April 13, 2011 – 8:30am EST – US Core Retail Sales
    Historical Chart and Data

    4. Fri April 15, 2011 – 8:30am EST – US Core CPI m/m
    Historical Chart and Data

    The focus of the week is US Core Retail Sales as US economy is a consumption based economy and the Retail Sales component makes up 2/3 of its GDP.

    Thanks Henry !


    I've put updated my Google calendar with the release times above.

    If you don't already have it, it gives you the following:
    1. Translates the time into your local timezone
    2. Allows you to see your personal appointments alongside when the news releases are happening
    3. And if you have a Google Calendar account - notifications to your mobile phone via SMS (for free!)

    Instructions (you only need to add this once and it will appear every week)

    Adding to iPhone:
    1. Send an e-mail to your iPhone with the e-mail body of "webcal://www.google.com/calendar/ical/06nlopqpjr7nnehhgc99igak6k%40group.calendar.google.com/public/basic.ics" (without the quotes and remove the extra space before the '.com')
    2. On your iPhone, open the e-mail and click on the link.
    3. When prompted "Subscribe to the calendar: 'Henry Liu's Trading Signals'?", click "Subscribe".
    4. Open your calendar and it will say "The Calendar 'Henry Liu's Trading Signals' has been added"
    5. Click "Done".

    Adding to your own Google Calendar and setting SMS notification (see accompanying screenshots attached):
    1. Log into your Google calendar and go to "Other Calendars"
    2. Type in "06nlopqpjr7nnehhgc99igak6k@group.calendar.google.com" (without the quotes and the .com should be one word - you'll need to remove the space)
    3. Now click on the drop-down for your newly added calendar "Henry Liu's Trading Signals". Click on "Calendar settings"
    4. Click on the tab "Notifications". Fill in the reminders you'd like - E-mail, SMS and Pop-up.

    If you don't see "SMS" as a drop-down option, you need to configure the settings for your mobile phone in Google. Go to your "Settings" (top right) and choose "Mobile Setup" or check Google Calendar Help.

    I update this based on news listed in the FPA calendar and then update every week shortly after Henry releases his weekly review, so you should only need to add the calendar once and from there on you'll get reminders every week to help you trade :)

    Hope this helps,
