Yes, it will be at 12:30 GMT, or 14:30 MQ MT5 time :

2013-08-02 12:30 GMT | [USD - Non-farm Payrolls]

The strategy is very simple one for/during nfp: "if you do not know how to trade - stay away" :)

Yes, nfp trading may be profitable ... but as we can see on the charts on the previous posts so it is very difficult trade nfp nes events. Many traders are not trading during nfp, the other traders are not trading on Friday. But there are some traders (special guys) who are trading nfp only.

===========

US data announcements trigger volatile trading :

The US dollar is the main focus for forex traders this week with several crucial economic data releases scheduled. On Friday, the US unemployment rate will be revealed and it is predicted that the rate will drop from 7.6% to 7.5%. While this is heading in the right direction, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke is unlikely to trim the stimulus until he sees unemployment fall below 7%. The most significant measure of the health of the US economy, however, is the Non-Farm Payrolls (NFP) data, which will also be released on the same day.

Perhaps the most interesting thing is to manually trade this event. I would try to ride the wave as far as possible, but always keeping in mind that strong climbs back may take place. You should be mentally prepared to tolerate large movements and accept them. If you can enter a low risk level you can get a very good trade, keep in mind the risk/benefit ratio! Regards.

why?

     is it refer to strategy ea based on it

     or

     because of requote and/or other Reason FROM broker or some where; then it can not take the position?

what's the problem ?

and this is often the reason for back test results being very different to live trading.
