BOTS Financial Calendar: Weekly Top 5 Binary Options Trading Moves 4/15-22/2013

The Must Watch Top 5 Events of the Week

 

 

1. Reserve Bank of Australia Monetary Policy Meeting Minutes

 04/16/2013 – Tuesday at 1:30 am GMT

 

What will it affect: AUD

Forecast: no forecast is made for this type of event

Where to keep an eye on the event: CommuniTraders, RBA official website, Forex Factory, Bloomberg, Reuters, DailyFX

 

Why traders care and what to expect: This is the primary tool used by the Reserve Bank of Australia for communicating the reasons behind the Interest Rate vote. Sometimes the Minutes can also contain hints about future monetary direction or Rate changes

 

Directional bias:  UP if the Minutes contain hawkish information

                                    DOWN if the Minutes contain dovish information.

 

How I would trade this event: I would place 15 minute Calls on AUD/USD if the Minutes contain hints about a future rate increase

 

 

 

 

2. UK Consumer Price Index

04/16/2013 – Tuesday at 8:30 am GMT

 

What will it affect: GBP, FTSE

Forecast: no change from 2.8%

Where to keep an eye on the event: CommuniTraders, Forex Factory, DailyFX, Bloomberg, Reuters

 

Why traders care and what to expect: Consumer prices are closely related to the overall inflation because a higher price paid by consumers is indicative of a decrease in the purchasing power of the currency (inflation). This is eventually countered by the Central Bank with a Rate increase. The Bank of England uses the CPI for their inflation target, not the CORE version of the indicator and this makes it more important.    

 

Directional bias: UP if the actual values is higher than 2.8%      

                                  DOWN if the actual value is lower than 2.8%

 

How I would trade this event: I would buy several 15 minute Calls, in sequence if the value is higher than 3.0%

 

 

 

 

3. German ZEW Economic Sentiment

04/16/2013 – Tuesday at 09:00 am GMT

 

What will it affect: EUR, DAX

Forecast: 41.5 from a previous of 48.5

Where to keep an eye on the event: CommuniTraders, Forex Factory, DailyFX, Bloomberg, Reuters

 

Why traders care and what to expect: This is a survey of about 275 institutional investors and analysts who are highly informed about the economic outlook due to the nature of their jobs. They are asked to predict economy’s direction for the next 6 months and also to rate the current conditions. The German economy is the backbone of the Euro Zone economy so this survey has the potential to move the market.     

 

Directional bias: UP if the actual value will be higher 41.5

                                  DOWN if the actual value will be lower than 41.5

 

How I would trade this event: I would buy a 15 minute Call on EUR/USD and one on DAX if the value will be higher than 44.

 

 

 

 

4. Speech of ECB President Mario Draghi

04/16/2013 – Tuesday at 1:00 pm GMT

 

What will it affect: EUR, DAX

Forecast: no forecast is made for this type of event

Where to keep an eye on the event: Forex Factory, DailyFX, Bloomberg, Reuters

 

Why traders care and what to expect: The ECB President, Mario Draghi is scheduled to speak about the European Central Bank’s activities, in Strasbourg in front of the members of the European Parliament. Depending on the specific topics discussed and his attitude, volatility could be experienced in all Euro related pairs. 

 

 

Directional bias: UP if the President is hawkish in his attitude

                                  DOWN if the President is dovish in his attitude

 

How I would trade this event: If movement is indeed created by his speech, I will wait for a clear direction before trading

 

 

 

 

5. Bank of Canada’s Rate Decision

04/17/2013 – Wednesday at 2:00 pm GMT

 

What will it affect: CAD

Forecast: unchanged 1.0%

Where to keep an eye on the event: CommuniTraders, Forex Factory, Bloomberg, Reuters, DailyFX

 

Why traders care and what to expect: Interest rates in general are the main market mover for their respective currencies and the Canadian Dollar is no exception. The Rate decision will be followed by Bank of Canada’s Press Conference (3:15 pm GMT) and more volatility might be created by this event. We will also need to keep an eye on the BoC Monetary Policy Report and BoC Rate Statement, both released at the same time as the Rate decision.

 

Directional bias: UP if the Rate is increased

                                  DOWN if the Rate is decreased

 

How I would trade this event: I would buy an hourly Put on USD/CAD if the Rate will be increased or if the other events mentioned will contain bullish signs.
