Hello Folks,

I wanted to pin into a discussion on news trading. Do you think is worth trading the news?

According to my great research and experience in forex to me news are like fuel to the market trend not actually beneficial trusting the real data.

Lots of investors keep waiting for news and follow the positive values or against the negative. But most time you should notice that before news is released even the price had got to the climax or Lowest Value for the trading period .

There are powerful news that are released that highly influenced the market trend sometimes immediate and some times delayed impact but most of these support the prevailing trend if you are trend follower you must notice this.

As per this what would be your advice to news traders?

I personally do not use news in my tradings and no indicator either and am happy with my performance.

Happy tradings

News trading is ok but usually broker will try to stop you. Something like market is closed, disconnections, pending orders becomes yellow and so on. cool

Past experience usually helps present self

News trading is very good. But what is most important? Liquidity. Find a broker with very good liquidity and a VPS with fast access to platform. There's a lot of such kind. I trade on news from 1 year already and it is giving very good profits. I have also updated my news trading robot and optimized it for have most low time of execution/modify/close trades. Most people doesnt know how time is important here. My robot makes it for me :) I only pick good news.

News is a suckers game. The market movers use news releases to further their profits buy getting people to confidently part with their money. Ever seen a news release spike hard, only to be forceably pushed the opposite direction...in seemingly total disagreement with the release? That is what I mean. The big players know the news well before the retail traders, so they already have a game plan.

Ignore the news releases. The only things you need to watch out for is spread widening, and spiking/gapping. If your stoploss is in the right place, you have no worries. Market structure and price action are more important than anything else.



Make losses, but always come out a winner at the end.

The news result is meaningless (i.e., where actual comes in relative to forecast). However, entering/exiting on the releases (with wide stops) is the best way to trade the moves that 'Movers' (thanks Antny) create. . . How else could Adrian generate such astounding returns? Adrian and the other Movers know what the market will do the second news hits (regardless of the actual reading). . . It's a beautiful thing!

Nice Adrian ,,, looking nice ,,,
 Yeah news could be good if you are able to detect the numbers earlier before release and yet many news are positive to the target pairs and market normally do not obey the results in most cases it would play with traders before going to the tune of news , sometimes couple minutes,hours and even days before taking action.
Another thing is can you consistently trade news and survive the market on regular trading for over 3 months? This is what could make you great if not is still gambling you are doing I trust :) For me I trade market 24/5 without any indicator only price moves and price actions I follow

As usual I use news for exit from the trades not for entry. Or I wait until dust will settle, look at level where the knee-jerk reaction stops and if this level is in my plan, I make a deal. As usual against the herd. And as ususal I took my pips.

The lack of charisma can be fatal.

I believe that news trading is very useful. You just have to do it right way. Usually when news impact the price, we face the considerable movements in the market. So just before the news release why not open two opposite orders with the SL about 20 pips away. If the price reaches one of the SL, it will, most likely keep moving the same direction for more, so you will definitely cover the loss and get the profit. At least most of the times.
