If I am in the cash by 75 pips or so, the news doesn't affect me. If I have a setup that is specialized I seem to get hosed if news comes out.

If I have an entry order, the news spikes for me in and then I take a loser as it retraces. If I am in a trade, the news spikes against me and that I get knocked out with slippage.

Is this just how it goes? I have a feeling when I start leaving my positions before news, the market will rip in my favor and when I cancel my entry orders before the news comes out, the market will trade through my entry price and never look back.

Anybody else have this problem?
