Thread: Trading the news immediately after release

  1. #1
    Hi folks,
    I am just wondering whether accepting trades once you see where the price is going after a news release (following 1-5 sec) is a good egy?
    I've tried it time and having checked the previous 20 big (reddish) news releases, just 1 time the price moved 10 pips up before going down.

    I understand it is risky (spread, slippage...) but what do you believe?

    Best.

    I did that last night and did not work, price went down fast like 10 pips and then for second hours 60 pips into another side.

    You can do that, but it is very risky. I wouldn't concentrate on that as my main trading egy.

    There is a high Chance to Strike Stop Loss

    The question is then - what's termed good?
    Think that tens of thousands of people out there each has several egies, so which are great and which aren't?
    You cannot simply say the great ones are those that make money. If you did, then if they do today rather than tomorrow.
    You see what I mean, so name your own criteria.
    About your particular egy, it is one. If it is not good then it is not one (nothing) but that I think many trade using it, how they follow things.
    But to myself, it does not signify a guarantee for profits. You want more, a lot than only the news, so to say.
    Perhaps you have experience a pair, like XAU/USD, jumped back and forth countless pips for only an hour time following the news? Guess not, then consider doing it.
    Just how much chance would you obtain a win, just how a loss? Should you know the answer then you're better a specialist than me and just forget my post.

    Yeah, I tried this a month or two ago. But really hard to create some profit on account of the high volatility. Also my broker increases the spread throughout the news time.

    Looks like following the news price go quickly to a level and from there go to the other directions. Not sure if would be like that, but I saw it occasionally.

    I am unsure buying on the jumps is a great plan although I've done it before myself. I believe that you should attempt to forecast the movement direction and apply a halt loss but choosing the path can be hard because you dont know how the information will go.
    I am asking questions on Trading the news immediately after release also so when I find out what others are doing and it makes sense I'll come back here and post for you.

I believe that you should try to predict the motion management and employ a stop loss but choosing the direction can be difficult since you dont know how the information will go. I am asking questions on Trading the news immediately after launch too so if I find out exactly what others do and it makes sense I will return here and post for you.
    Even if you're master trader. It's really difficult to trade news. Additionally, I tried this and asked this from some persons known to be specialists. Do not hear anything favorable up to Now

    I like to Trade the News pressers like FOMC and ECB as this morning. The events continue longer, there is tons of volatility due to all the Algos, and it creates a nice chance to scalp both short and long
