Australian GDP: Wednesday, 00:30. The Australian economy slowed down quite considerably slowed down in Q3, 0.3%, a third of the of the pace in Q2. The outcome for Q4 will unlikely improve as the whole world slowed down, including China, Australia’s No. 1 trading partner.

US ADP Non-Farm Payrolls: Wednesday, 13:15. Automated Data Processing is the biggest provider of payrolls in the US and in recent months, its report has been well-correlated with the official NFP published later on. In January, 213K positioned were gained according to ADP. A more moderate expansion is likely now.

Canadian rate decision: Wednesday, 15:00. The Bank of Canada increased interest rates to 1.75% back in October but has not moved since then. No change is expected now. Governor Stephen Poloz and Deputy Governor Carolyn Wilkins said that the economy can grow with little inflation, signaling a pause. While the trade dispute with the US has been resolved, the global slowdown still casts clouds on the economy.

This is conditioned by the continuation of trading above the level of 1.12.

Update: We are still waiting for the pair to reach the broken neckline. As we reported last week that the pair managed to break through the neckline of the head and shoulder patter and continued going up too much. The pair now could be developing like a retest scenario to test the broken level (the neckline). In this case, we will be waiting for the pair to retest this area then we will decide if it is time to enter the market. Nothing to be done for now.
