Numerous pricing reports for the UK economy come out on Tuesday, April 12, 2016, at 4:30 AM ET. There is a strategy however, that works well for these kinds of news events. Using Nadex spreads, one can enter the night before at 11:00 PM ET for 7:00 AM ET expirations.
The Office For National Statistics for the UK will release six different pricing reports. The Consumer Pricing Index has the most impact due to consumer pricing making up the majority of inflation. The Central Bank watches consumer pricing and will adjust interest rates accordingly to keep inflation in check.
With the anticipated market reaction, implied volatility can build in options. Based on previous market movement to the monthly release of these reports, an Iron Condor strategy using Nadex GBP/USD spreads is one idea, going for a $30 or more combined profit potential.

What politics has been slow in accomplishing, though, has not been the case in the culture and hiring practices of large U.S. businesses, where female CEOs are more common than in politics. In fact, two companies in the Dow Jones Industrial Average – E I Du Pont De Nemours And Co (NYSE: DD) and International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE: IBM) – are led by women, and perhaps it’s some sign of progress that former HP Inc (NYSE: HPQ) CEO and presidential candidate Carly Fiorina faced some criticism for her HP tenure rather than being subject to a politically correct “kid gloves” evaluation that is often perceived to be given to female executives.

One under-$10 toy player that’s trending very close to triggering a major breakout trade is Jakks Pacific (JAKK), which is a producer and marketer of children’s toys and other consumer products. This stock has been destroyed by the bears so far in 2013, with shares off sharply by 60%.
If you take a look at the chart for Jakks Pacific, you’ll notice that this stock has been downtrending badly for the last two months and change, with shares plunging from its high of $11.75 to its recent low of $4.82 a share. During that downtrend, shares of JAKK have been consistently making lower highs and lower lows, which is bearish technical price action. That said, shares of JAKK look like they might be ready to see an end to its downside volatility in the short-term if the recent lows can hold. I believe this due to the fact that JAKK has started to move sideways and trend within range of triggering a major breakout trade.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in JAKK if it manages to break out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $5.08 to $5.27 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that hits near or above its three-month average action of 695,817 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then JAKK will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $5.68 to its 50-day moving average at $6.07 a share. Any high-volume move above its 50-day will then put $7 to $8 into range for shares of JAKK.
Traders can look to buy JAKK off weakness to anticipate that breakout and simply use a stop that sits right below some key near-term support levels at $4.87 to $4.82 a share. One can also buy JAKK off strength once it clears those breakout levels with volume and then simply use a stop that sits a comfortable percentage from your entry point.
