    3 Numbers: Upbeat Q1 may drive European Commission to lift GDP outlook

    3 Numbers: Upbeat Q1 may drive European Commission to lift GDP outlook
    Last week’s upbeat GDP figure for the first quarter suggests there’s room for managing expectations up for the EU, so the European Commission may take the opportunity to give its growth forecast a welcome lift. In Britain, much is on hold until the Brexit vote is decided. The uncertainty could weigh on today’s April update of UK manufacturing sentiment. And on the other side of the Atlantic, US auto sales are expected to show a welcome rebound in the April report.

    Hi Serge, how would you set up the trade with options?, I think a long put probably or a spread?

    Yes you would likely want to buy a put spread with implied volatility still very low in relative terms. Look out to July paper

    3 Numbers: US ISM Manufacturing on track to stay positive in April
    Today’s revised Eurozone Manufacturing PMI for April should give some indication of the outlook for the macro trend in Q2. In the US, a second month of growth is expected for today's first look at the US ISM Manufacturing Index for April. And in forex markets, there's plenty of room for debate about whther the GBPUSD rally is sustainable.

    WEEK 17 (25.04.2016 - 01.05.2016) [FS&P500]

    2100 worked as a selling area. Clearly there is no much power to stop bearish move.

    I think medium term target should be the main one at the moment. Looking to go long if price reaches 1970/80.

    Short Term: .Bearish

    Medium Term: Range 1970/80 - 2100 *(prev. 2110-2120)*

    Long Term: Bearish/Mixed

    Not a great deal to update for today due to holiday period today.
    However the USA/sp500 will not be affected by lower fx liquidity so update on SP500...
