    Henry Liu here again for this week's upcoming news releases and as usual, I'll be sending you more detailed analysis for each and every one of the high impact tradable releases listed below:

    And of course as usual, there are some untradable news releases:

    1. Mon August 2, 2010 3:15am - CH Retail Sales - Usually CH is not affected by its fundamental outlook, but by the market's risk sentiment. Best to skip it than trying to force a trade....
    2. Tue August 3, 2010 10:00am - US Pending Home Sales - Most of the time market just ignores this release, and especially so when home sales are expected to be under pressure, so there is no real surprise factor.
    3. Tue August 3, 2010 9:30pm - AU Trade Balance - Not tradable by historical records, rather not waste time on this release.
    4. Wed August 4, 2010 10:00am - US ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI - Track records of this release are showing a general muted reaction, therefore best to skip it.
    5. Wed August 4, 2010 6:45pm - NZ Employment Change - I usually don't trade this release as market usually fails to react. NZD is a risk and commodity currency. Best to trade this currency on risk sentiment than on fundamental outlook.
    6. Thu August 5, 2010 8:30am EST - EU Trichet Press Conference - I will try to write an analysis for this release, but I do not recommend anyone that's not experienced with Trichet's speech to trade it. Market could move violently and it's better to stay out.
    7. Fri August 6, 2010 4:30am EST - UK PPI & Manuf. Prod. - Not market moving news releases. Best to stay out and concentrate on the REAL mover at 8:30am.

    Following the upcoming overview tradition, let's take a look at the week before last week and how the market traded last week:

    EUR remained unchanged
    GBP gained 1.0% against USD
    CAD gained 2.0% against USD
    AUD gained 3.0% against USD
    NZD gained 2.0% against USD
    JPY lost 1.0% against USD
    CHF remained unchanged

    ...and last week (7-26~30, 2010)

    EUR Gained 1.5% against USD
    GBP gained 1.5% against USD
    CAD gained 0.5% against USD
    AUD gained 1.0% against USD
    NZD remained unchanged against USD
    JPY gained 1.0% against USD
    CHF gained 1.0% against USD


    With 2 weeks of consecutive broad losses on the USD, market is definitely looking at this week's NFP for direction. With major releases from USD, EUR, GBP, CAD, and AUD all scheduled for the week, the directional bias for the weekly trend is hard to determine. I would remain on the sidelines for the time being... However, here are my thoughts and take it using your own good judgment.

    AUD should be bearish and my opinion is twofold. First, RBA is not expected to hike interest rate and the accompanied statement should be bearish as there are no expectations for rate hikes until 2011. Second, the general sentiment of risk aversion could take over this week's general market trend as the world is once again reminded in the bleak outlook of US Employment sector. My view is to SELL AUD/USD from the top and my target is still on the 0.8650 level. This is a longer-term outlook, but I believe for AUD/USD to remain at the current level it would take a tremendous amount of positive momentum... It is like going upstream and eventually it will have to come down...

    JPY is likely to react to risk sentiment, but my long-term outlook is for a weaker JPY as technically this currency is screaming for a consolidation, but based on market sentiment, BOJ has brought up intervention possibilities in the event, that most traders believe, when USDJPY breaches the 85.00. I for one do not expect to see this level anytime soon, but I'd be buying USD/JPY at 85.00 if we get there. As USD/JPY is definitely forming a bottom around the current levels (87~85), a broader long-term view is for USD/JPY back above the 90s...

    So folks, this is it. I'll be sending you more detail analyses for each and every one of the tradable releases this week before their schedule.

    Thank you,

    Henry I'm not actively trading FX right now ... but I am following your analysis.
    I really appreciate all the research and analysis you are sharing with the forum.
    Hopefully in a few months I'll be able to take advantage of some of it.

    AUD fundamentals

    Henry,
    Has the current rally which seems to be going up like non-stop influenced in any way your fundamental analysis and forecast that you made a few days ago last week (that Aussie is very likely to go down a couple hundreds pips) ?

    Thank you

    I still believe that AUD is going to drop, but we do need a news catalyst for that to happen. I believe when it drops, it will drop hard.
