  1. With the Market: when trading you should be aiming in  following the market trend forming due to the news in favor of the currency of interest.
  2. High risk  > High reward. Succeeding in opening the position early before the huge market move in one direction will generate relatively significant amount of profits.
  3. Time allocation. The best part about trading the news is that you are not always monitoring the market waiting for opportunities to emerge, 24/7. You are interested only to trade during the specific time news announcements will occur, thus you can more spend time on other interests.
*Past performance is no guarantee of future results. 

  Strategy Setup Requirements

Requirements for a solid strategy
  • Expected news announcements are always scheduled prior and set at a specific time. Trade AFTER the announcement and not before or else there will be no difference from taking a gamble.
  • Trade “high impact” news only. This are the ones that most probably generate a large market move in one direction.
Requirements for a solid strategy
  • Right after the announcement, WAIT a few seconds or even minutes for the spread to come back to normal. Always monitor the spread (both BID and ASK).
  • Same amount of lot size per trade for at least 40 to 50 trades. A sufficient number of observations for statistical purposes and risk management.

In this way at the end you will have enough evidence that the specific strategy is successful or not. Either way, it is worth the effort to find that out…” – Marios Kyriakou –
