  1. 9.30am – Australia will release their economic leading indicator the CPI which is expected to be lower then previous month – we believe the CPI will remain the same.
  2. 1.00pm – Japan will release the CPI which is an important economic data for stimulus cut decision – we believe Japan is now ready for a QQQE CUT sooner then many think. We maintain BUY for JPY.
  3. 4.00pm – German Business Climate will create volatility – we maintain BUY EURO this year – we will catch all lower prices and do a Dollar Cost Averaging (DCA Technique); we never want to miss the rally this year.
  4. 10.00pm – US will release their New Home Sales and is expected to be higher then previous month; USD expected to go up tonight. $91 focus.

We remain cautious this week as the US Treasury yield for the first time after 2016 breaks the 3% and looks like corporate companies are supporting the USD as it almost breaks the $88. USD rally will not long we believe the SELL-OFF is around the corner, be cautious this week with good money management.
