Technical Focus


Oct.22.2014

Plenty of data out today for anyone who might have been complaining about lack of hot economic data.

The market moving events today will likely affect the Aussie dollar, British Pound Canadian dollar and the US dollar. The Asian session kicked off with Australia’s CPI release which came in better than expected,followed by the UK MPC Asset Purchase Facility Votes turning out 0-0-9.

Canada’s Core retail sales index is out  at the same time the US CPI is released; worse than expected for Mr. Canadian dollar and better than expected for Mr. USA, causing a sharp jump in the USD/CAD pair.

Right at the London market close Bank of Canada’s press conference starts at 4:15 PM followed by a speech by governor Poloz. RBA Gov Stevens Speaks at 10 PM and could create volatility for those of you who like to trade forex the late hours.

These all sound cool, but let's leave the market noise alone for a sec and focus on the technical, shall we?
