    Hello FPA members,

    Today we have the NZ GDP, I have prepared the following trade plan for you.

    NZ GDP q/q
    Forecast 0.5%
    Previous 0.8%
    Pair to trade: NZD/USD

    Numbers we need: BUY NZD/USD 0.8%
    SELL NZD/USD 0.2%

    Economical Impact: High
    Typical Result: Good for currency
    Occurrence: Quarterly, 85 days after the quarter ends
    Spike Probability: Good but, be mindful that trade has tendency to reverse after spike

    About our Triggers:
    NZ GDP q/q is forecasted to arrive at 0.5%.
    If we get 0.8% or better I will look to enter a LONG position on NZD/USD and if we get 0.2% or lower I will go SHORT on NZD/CAD.
    Should this report be triggered, we can expect to see about 25pips on the initial spike.

    What is it? And why does the market care?
    Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is the broadest measure of economic activity and is a key indicator of economic health. The quarterly percent changes in GDP show the growth rate of the economy as a whole.

    A higher than expected reading should be taken as positive/bullish for the NZD
    A lower than expected reading should be taken as negative/bearish for the NZD

    Method I use to trade this:
    Stavro D’Amore Trading Method
    I will look for a 50% retracement in the original spike before entering a trade if trade falls below the 50% spike I will look to go the opposite direction as this trade is likely to reverse. I will be looking at a 15 minute chart. I will close half my position as soon as I hit the original high point of the first initial spike and place a SL at the original spike price.

    NOTE: I will not take this retracement on this trade unless our triggers are hit.

    My TP level would be just before a resistance level or if the chart decides to form a support level, looking at a 15 minute chart time frame to analyse this.

    I do NOT recommend spike trading as an option on this trade NZ releases are known to have latency, Should you decide to trade spike please do in caution.

    All the best
