December 20, 2012 Live chat room trade was Canadian CPI data. Market was expecting 0.1% we were using a trigger of 0.5% actual number released was 0.2%. This was not a big surprise to the market however it was less than expected and less than the prior month's reading of 0.3%. Our chat room call was a (HOLD) and no trade-off of the news itself The initial reaction off the news was a spike up in the USD/CAD. We waited approximately 4 minutes and then SOLD this pair which was basically a fade off of the spike up in price. This trade resulted in a 30 pip profit. We also opened a BUY order on Oil and used the commodity rally as additional confirmation to our USD/CAD (SELL) trade. December 21, 2012 Live chat room trade was US existing home sales. Market was expecting 5,040,000 we were using a trigger of 30,000 actual number released was 4,420,000 This was certainly a big difference from what the market was expecting and it did hit our trigger number. However in our analysis and update prior to the economic data released, we anticipated a higher probability of a market surprise for this number due to the national Association of realtors report of grossly overestimating their figures over the past couple of years. We knew there was going to be a substantial reassessment of all of the prior news releases from the national Association of realtors and there would need to be some serious downward revisions. Our chat room call was a (SELL) immediately upon confirming the news. This trade resulted in approximately 19 pips within just a few minutes after the news was released and we took the profits that were available up to that moment. December 22, 2012 Live chat room trade was US GDP. Market was expecting 2.0% we were using a trigger number of 0.5% actual number released was 1.8% This was not a big difference from what the market was expecting however it was a disappointing number. At the same time US GDP data was released, we also received the weekly jobless claims which were better than expected and continued to show improvements in this area. This gave a mixed reading and since the US GDP did not hit our trigger number, Our chat room call was a (HOLD) and no trade off the news itself. Due to the lack of technical setups, we did not call a trade after the news. We will not be trading the rest of December 22 and we will be off on Friday, December 23 due to a lack of holiday trading volume.
