EUR/USD to Face Larger Rebound on Dismal 4Q U.S. GDP

Trading the News: U.S. Gross Domestic Product (GDP)

The advance U.S. 4Q Gross Domestic Product (GDP) report may generate a larger rebound in EUR/USD should the fresh batch of data highlight a slowing recovery in the world’s largest economy.

What’s Expected:

EUR/USD GDP

Why Is This Event Important:

Even though the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) is widely expected to raise the benchmark interest rate in mid-2015, a dismal GDP print may push the central bank to further delay its normalization cycle especially as it struggles to achieve the 2% target for inflation.

Subdued wages paired with the recent contraction in private consumption may generate a marked slowdown in economic activity, and a weaker-than-projected growth rate may undermine the bullish sentiment surrounding the dollar as it drags on interest rate expectations.

Nevertheless, improved confidence along with the ongoing recovery in the labor market may prompt a strong GDP figure, and a positive development may promote a further decline in EUR/USD amid the deviation in the policy outlook.

How To Trade This Event Risk(Video)

Bearish USD Trade: 4Q GDP Fails to Meet Market Expectations

  • Need to see green, five-minute candle following the GDP report to consider a long trade on EURUSD
  • If market reaction favors a short dollar trade, buy EURUSD with two separate position
  • Set stop at the near-by swing low/reasonable distance from entry; look for at least 1:1 risk-to-reward
  • Move stop to entry on remaining position once initial target is hit; set reasonable limit

Bullish USD Trade: Growth Rate Expands 3.0% or Greater

  • Need red, five-minute candle to favor a short EURUSD trade
  • Implement same setup as the bearish dollar trade, just in reverse

3Q 2014 U.S. Gross Domestic Product (GDP)

EUR/USD to Face Larger Rebound on Dismal 4Q U.S. GDP

The U.S. economy advanced more-than-expected in the third-quarter, with the growth rate expanding another annualized 3.5% following the 4.6% expansion during the three-months through June. At the same time, Personal Consumption climbed 1.8% during the same period amid forecasts for a 1.9% print, while the core Personal Consumption Expenditure (PCE) narrowed to 1.4% from 2.0% in the second-quarter. Despite the better-than-expected GDP print, the Fed appears to be in no rush to normalize monetary policy as it struggles to achieve the 2% target for inflation. The initial reaction in EUR/USD was short-lived as the pair snapped back from the 1.2550 region, with the pair ending the day at 1.2602.
