BOTS Financial Calendar: Weekly Top 5 Binary Options Trading Moves 4/22-29/2013

 

The Must Watch Top 5 Events of the Week

 

 

 

1. Reserve Bank of New Zealand Rate Decision

04/23/2013 – Tuesday at 9:00 pm GMT

 

What will it affect: NZD

Forecast: unchanged at 2.50%

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

 

Why traders care and what to expect: New Zealand maintains a pretty clear monetary policy and this makes the Rate Decision very predictable. The Rate Statement is released at the same time and contains details about the economic conditions that determined the decision. Even expectations of a future rate increase could strengthen the currency.

 

Directional bias:  UP if the Rate is increased or if the Rate Statement contains hints of future rate increases.

                                    DOWN if the Rate is decreased or if the Rate Statement contains hints of future rate increases.

 

How I would trade this event: I would place hourly Calls on NZD/USD if the Rate is increased or the Statement contains bullish information.

 

 

 

 

2. Apple, Inc. Earnings

04/23/2013 – Tuesday

 

What will it affect: AAPL

Consensus EPS forecast: $10.18

Where to keep an eye on the event: CommuniTraders, Bloomberg, Reuters, Nasdaq.com

 

Why traders care and what to expect: Apple is expected to announce their Earnings report on the 23rd of April but the exact time is not known at the moment. If the actual value is higher than forecast, AAPL might strengthen. The actual EPS for the same quarter last year was $12.3.    

 

Directional bias: UP if the actual values beat the estimates.         

                                  DOWN if the actual values are lower than estimated

 

How I would trade this event: I would buy 15 minute Calls, in sequence if the value is higher than 11.5

 

 

 

 

3. Coca Cola Enterprises, Inc. Earnings

04/25/2013 – Thursday

 

What will it affect: CCE

Consensus EPS forecast: $0.38

Where to keep an eye on the event: CommuniTraders, Bloomberg, Reuters, Nasdaq.com

 

Why traders care and what to expect: The Earning Reports have the potential to be major market movers especially if surprises are posted. Better numbers than estimated will probably strengthen CCE. The reported value for the same quarter last year was $0.36. The exact time of the announcement is not known at the moment.     

 

Directional bias: UP if the actual values beat the estimates

                                 DOWN if the actual values are lower than estimated

 

How I would trade this event: I would buy a 15 minute Put on CCE if the value will be lower than estimated

 

 

 

 

4. Bank of Japan Rate Decision

04/26/2013 – Friday early morning GMT

 

What will it affect: JPY

Forecast: unchanged 0.10%

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

 

Why traders care and what to expect: A rate change is unlikely but nonetheless, the event will create volatility on JPY related pairs. The Press Conference that follows will probably bring a lot of movement and is the main market mover. BoJ Governor Kuroda will speak at the Press Conference which is scheduled for 06:30 am GMT according to Daily FX. Before the conference, at 03:00 am GMT, BoJ will also release an Outlook Report.

 

Directional bias: UP if the Rate is increased or if the other events have bullish implications

                                  DOWN if the Rate is decreased or if the other events have bearish implications

 

How I would trade this event: I would trade only after a clear direction is established.

 

 

 

 

5. US Advance Gross Domestic Product

04/26/2013 – Friday at 12:30 pm GMT

 

What will it affect: USD, US indices, US Stocks

Forecast: 3.0% from a previous of 0.4%

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

 

Why traders care and what to expect:  The Gross Domestic Product is the main gauge for a country’s economy. Higher GDP means the economy is thriving and the opposite is true for a lower GDP. Many of the components of this indicator are known in advance and this takes away some of its immediate impact but it remains a very important market sentiment indicator.

 

Directional bias: UP if the GDP is higher than 3.0%

                                  DOWN if the GDP is lower than 3.0%

 

How I would trade this event: I would buy hourly Calls on DJIA, S&P, USD/JPY and a Put on EUR/USD if the GDP is higher than 3.0%
