Been waiting for this all week, Today we have 2 key economic releases Employment data for the USD & CAD. On Thursday I had told traders to watch the ADP no`s closely now here is my prediction for today. Buy CADXXX, SELL XXXCAD (cad employment) & SELL USDXXX, Buy XXXUSD. Don`t just enter Blindly watch the unemployment rates(%) if they are different from the unemployment change expect some whipsaws.

Trump is immediately tweeting his head off. Could it be that the same kind of bending of the rules that this administration has been doing has affected these statistics? Nahhh.......that's just another crazy conspiracy theory............
