    Tradeable News

    There are 5 to 10 economic news releases almost daily in each country. So make sure you focus on the schedule when the news is released, so you can also make a schedule of any hours you will be trading.
    You do not need to pay special attention to all the news, you can choose it. There is some news coming every month, which can cause significant price movements. Here we will focus on the news and economic reports from USD. Because USD is generally involved in all world currency trading. Therefore, USD has a very significant influence in the currency market. Below is a list of important reports in market movements:

    • Employment Growth
    • Interest Rate decisions
    • Trade Balance
    • Gross Domestic Product
    • Retail Sales
    • Durable Goods
    • Inflation reports (Consumer Price Index and Producer Price Index)
    • Foreign Purchases report (TIC Data)

    Each country has important reports similar to those reports. All the reports are scheduled, and many websites on the internet are displaying these schedules.
    Now you already know how and when you are trading based on news.

    There are several concepts that you need to know before you start trading. The actual figures on a report or news affect the long-term price movements of a currency pair, while in the short term, the difference between market expectations and the actual release is likely to cause a breakout.

    That is, if the numbers in a news, in general in accordance with expectations or market expectations, then the news is not too cause reaction / movement of a great market.

    The quieter the market moves before the release of a news, the greater the movement that will occur next. Because the quiet market means there are few buyers and sellers, and most likely they are waiting for "something". And when the "something" comes / appears, the traders who are waiting for it open a position almost simultaneously, causing market movement is quite powerful.

    The more calm a market, the more the price will move great after the release of a news. Depending on how important the news is and the amount of deviation / difference between the actual and estimated figures. Breakouts that occur because of a news, usually only lasted briefly, just a few minutes or even just a few seconds.

    Few Trading News entries are suitable to be applied by scalpers and day traders.
