News trading is very tempting. It is very risky as well. Traders are to be very careful with news trading. Proper money management is needed with adequate knowledge about news trading.

Actually, as far as I concerned there are several techniques of news trading. Firstly, yu have to classify the news on two categories: unexpected and periodic ones. Then, you have to check both categories, periodic are being repeated day by day, while you have to really ready for unexpected ones. Periodic news implies the news connected with interest rate, it happens once per five year if I'm not mistaken. Unexpected news appear quite unexpectedly, that's why they have such a name. In my opinion, here fundamental analysis prevails over technical ones, however it's required to know the basics of boths ones.
News trading is fine if you know what to do. That is ike everything in trading, I think. That is why before trading the news you'd better learn lots of fundamental stuff in order to know which news have the potential to affect the market and what kind of news is useless for the traders to make up some conclusions. The only thing I should say is that news trading can definetely bring the profits and make your trading results much better but suh a thing is much more complicated that technical analysis, from my perspective. So, I strongly recommend to stay away from the news if you don't know how to analze it properly.
News trading is the act of buying and selling currencies after an important news announcement has been made. A trader should buy a currency following good news and sell after bad news, or vice versa. This is because an announcement can cause a major shift in the price of a currency, and if a trader acts quickly enough, they can make substantial profits.
Oh yes, there is always a feeling of the lost opportunities but such a feeling appears only restrospectively. I always think that this or that event has undoubtedly a potential to influence the market but when I realise that, it is too late. Anyway, I try to concentrate on technical analysis because news trading looks too difficult for me.
