Considering the fact that the last 2 months the monthly employment numbers have been completely the opposite of expectations we are looking to get short the USD infront of the number. the fact is from a technical perspective the EUR/USD has broken the downtrend on the the 1 hr, 4 hr, 8, hr and ther DAILY. First pullback to 1.2025 - 50 range should be an area of support. Draw a trendline from the lows of the last 10 days to draw the uptrend line from the bottoms. Big problem is the fact that gold is down $5.50 as I write this and as you all know there is an 80% correlation gbetween the USD and Gold. main reason is the fact that gold transactions are in USD and the fear factor. With respect to our gameplan to be long into the number, part of the reason is contrarian, part of the reason is buying the pullback and the main reason is risk reward. If the usd is rallying into the number the upside will be limited BUT if the number comes out bad and the USD has rallied into the number the upside will be at least 100 to 150 pips. be short 5 to 10 minutes into the number, try to get a good entry point and put a stop 15 to 20 pips from the market 5 to 10 seconds before the number comes out. Remember guaranteed stops at FXCM/REFCO! these analysts always get it wrong so I'de rather play that they will get it wrong again.
