The way to go about trading this particular set of circumstances is to look beyond the overall direction it seems to be floating towards, and instead trying to identify the belief being created here by the Market Makers. Where are the active highs and lows? Which ones have they pushed through already? How would a person in a long feel about their position? How about a short? Identifying how emotions are moving in the market is key to forecasting a profit release (Click on the picture for a bigger view).
What we can see here is a snap down shortly into the accumulation phase followed by a slow accumulation to the upside. Notice in the picture shown the most recent candle has a wick that comes right down to the middle of the accumulation zone, then starts backing off to head long again .

As the week unfolds, watching for these signs the Market Makers have left can reveal the true intention of the Market. There will no doubt be plenty more manipulation leading up to the news events mentioned above, however with the right mindset and fair assumptions you can be on the right side of each of them.
