Top 4 Minor Pairs to Trade

As many traders and analysts grapple with today’s big economic news (namely, the UK’s disappointing 0.3% month-over-month contraction in GDP, the US’ surprise 0.4% jump in month-over-month PPI, and the FOMC meeting minutes set to release at 2 pm), many are similarly preparing for tomorrow's new round of CPI data in the US. Scheduled for reporting by the Bureau of Labor Statistics at 8:30 am on Thursday, October 13th, the public will learn how prices for US consumers changed in September. Because CPI is a proxy for inflation, this news will likely cause a great deal of volatility across financial markets, potentially offering another fundamental catalyst for USD bulls if September’s hot jump in PPI is any indication. While major pairs like EUR/USD, GBP/USD, and USD/JPY are thus still ripe for trading, it can also be worthwhile to explore some less frequently traded pairs as well. Here are the A1 EdgeFinder’s top 4 minor pairs to trade, along with some additional analysis for each.

1) CHF/JPY (Earns a 3, or ‘Buy’ Rating)
