The CAD is prolly gonna be strong tonight. The employment change is a pretty good number. And judging from pattern, the manufacturing sales number is prolly gonna be strong too. The USD seems like it is gonna be weak...My suggestion:.CAD/JPY - Call at 815pm (GMT+8).EUR/USD - Call at 815pm (GMT+8) OR.USD/CAD - Put at 815pm (GMT+8)
