What Does The Data Mean To The Market?

The Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey’s (CBRT) Monetary Policy Committee votes on setting the overnight interest rate. Traders watch interest rate changes closely as short term interest rates are the primary factor in currency valuation.

A higher than expected rate is positive/bullish for the TRY (Turkish Lira), while a lower than expected rate is negative/bearish.

Trade Plan

22 out of 23 economists forecast today for the rate to stay at 19%

1 Says it’ll move to 18.5%. It’ll be a shock if its anything less than 19%

If we get a change of 0.5 in either direction, I’ll take a trade.

Tradable Pairs

  • EURTRY
  • USDJPY

Hope this helps but please do your own analysis!!

Good luck!!

Another shock to the markets today was when the highly anticipated cut to the Turkish interest didn’t happen; the markets quickly revalued the Turkish Lira’s value.

We saw a whopping 2000 pips in a few seconds: what a lovely move, a great trade.

Hi, I’m James, born in 1979 and grew up with a strong interest in IT and business. My first career was in IT support, which lasted 12 years before selling my company in 2009. I decided to move abroad and do something new! Forex caught my eye. I did the typical rookie thing of opening a real account, depositing far too much of my savings, and lost a small fortune. Although this experience was very negative at the time, it taught me some tough lessons that I still benefit from today. News events caught my eye; the patterns in the charts they created were repetitive and often predictable. I knew that if I could understand them more, I could make accurate predictions about how they would move. So I spent much time developing my trading method around thousands of hours of research and data. Now many years of trading around news events have earned me a good income, one that I’m sure others can benefit from.

Trading foreign exchange on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. Past performance is not indicative of future results. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with foreign exchange trading, and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
