3 Steps to Trade Major News Events (based on dailyfx article)
Today, we are going to cover three steps to trade news events.
Step 1 - Have a Strategy
It sounds simple, yet the emotion of the release can easily draw us off
course. We see prices moving quickly in a straight line and are afraid
to miss out or afraid to lose the gains we have been sitting on.
Therefore, we make an emotional decision and act.
Having a strategy doesn’t have to be complicated. Remember, staying out
of the market during news and doing nothing is a strategy.
A strategy for the trader with a floating profit entering the news event
could be as simple as “I am going to close off half my position and
move my stop loss to better than break even.”
For the trader wanting to initiate a new position that is technically
based, they may decide to wait until at least 15 minutes after the
release, then decide if the set-up is still valid.
The active news trader may realize they need a plan of buy and sell rules because they trade based on what ‘feels good.’
Step 2 - Use Conservative Leverage
If you are in the market when the news is released, make sure you are
implementing conservative amounts of leverage. We don’t know where the
prices may go and during releases, prices tend to move fast. Therefore,
de-emphasize the influence of each trade on your account equity by using
low amounts of leverage.
Our Traits of Successful Traders research found that traders who
implement less than ten times effective leverage tend to be more
profitable on average.
3 - Don’t Deviate from the Strategy
If you have taken the time to think about a strategy from step number
one and if you have realized the importance of being conservatively
levered, then you are 90% of the way there! However, this last 10% can
arguably be the most difficult. Whatever your plan is, stick to it!
If I put together a plan to lose 20 pounds of body weight that includes
eating healthier and exercising, but I continue to eat high fat and
sugar foods with limited exercise, then I am only setting myself up for
You don’t have to be stressed or frustrated through fundamental news releases.
