Trading the News: U.S. ISM Manufacturing

Even though the ISM Manufacturing survey is expected to hold steady at 51.3 in June, another unexpected uptick may heighten the appeal of the greenback and spur a short-term decline in EUR/USD as it instills an improved outlook for growth.

What’s Expected:

Why Is This Event Important:

Positive data prints coming out of the U.S. economy may put increased pressure on the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) to implement a rate-hike over the coming months, but signs of a slowing recovery may force the central bank to preserve a wait-and-see approach throughout 2016 in an effort to curb the downside risks surrounding the region.

Improved confidence accompanied by the pickup in private-sector spending may encourage another uptick in the ISM survey, and a positive development may spark a bullish reaction in the greenback as it boosts interest-rate expectations.

Nevertheless, the weakening outlook for global growth paired with the decline in private investment may drag on business sentiment, and a dismal report may produce near-term headwinds for the greenback as market participants push out bets for the next Fed rate-hike.

How To Trade This Event Risk(Video)

Bullish USD Trade: ISM Report Unexpectedly Improves for Second Month

  • Need red, five-minute candle following the statement to consider a short trade on EUR/USD.
  • If market reaction favors a bullish dollar trade, sell EUR/USD with two separate position.
  • Set stop at the near-by swing high/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.

Bearish USD Trade: Manufacturing Survey Falls Short of Market Expectations

  • Need green, five-minute candle to favor a long EUR/USD trade.
  • Implement same setup as the bullish dollar trade, just in reverse.

Potential Price Targets For The Release

EURUSD Daily

EUR/USD Daily Chart
  • Failure to preserve the upward trend from back in December puts the 2016 advance at risk, with a close below the Fibonacci overlap around 1.0960 (23.6% retracement) to 1.0970 (38.2% retracement) raising the scope for a further decline in EUR/USD as it appears to be carving a head-and-shoulders top going into the second-half of the year.
  • Key Resistance: 1.1760 (61.8% retracement) to 1.1810 (38.2% retracement)
  • Key Support: Interim Support: 1.0380 (78.6% expansion) to 1.0410 (61.8% expansion)
