      What is News Trading?

      News trading is the art of trading the financial market by using an economic event calendar/ data release schedule to exploit the strong surge of price to one side or another with the aim of scalping the market for a few pips or riding the momentum for as far as it can go. The calendar or schedule is a list made up of important things that can move the market sometimes temporarily before price returns to reverse but at times, it can act as the trigger for big continuation momentum. The items in the calendar are usually sourced from governments’ official website or associations so these are not just some random event but often a regularly occurring event varying from a weekly, monthly, quarterly or even yearly.

              The forex news is one of the factors that affect the forex market just as you have mentioned, and there are many factors to look at when making news or fundamental analysis, so as to always get the right call whenever an event is released.

              • whats is forex news?

              The forex news is considered a very dangerous method of trading due to a few reasons such as
              high volatility: the news usually comes with high volatility which means a trader has high chances of incurring a huge loss
              unpredictability: the news can be very difficult to forecast, and this means it's easy to get the news wrong.

              The traders with less experience are usually advised to avoid the news due to its risk, and likewise, traders that have problem with risk and money management might need to avoid the news

              if you will like to trade the news follow the below rules

              • perform fundamental analysis
              this gives you room to understand what to expect from the upcoming news, by fundamental analysis I mean monitoring of the fundamental or economic indicators such as the interest rate, Gross domestic product(GDP), Consumer price index, Unemployment rate, all this can give you insight on the health of an economy which can give you real knowledge of the direction of the news

              • always make use of stop-loss
              Due to the unpredictability of the news, make you set stop loss, and set it not too far from your entry, so as to make the potential loss minimal

              • take moderate risk
              when trading the news, it's not a time to increase risk but to reduce risk, let you risk be minimal.
              I believe if you can stick to all the above rules you will get to trade during the news a bit more comfortably

                Trading the news

                Trading based on the news can be carried out before the release of news, during the time of news release, or after the release of the news. This trading prctice is favored by some traders for some reasons, while others avoid it for certain reasons. Any forex trading style may be favorable to some traders, but may not work for others, so it is important for a trader to apply only those trading styles that leads to better performance during forex trading. The pros and cons of trading based on the news are as follows.

                Pros of trading the news
                Trading on the time of news release can provide significant profits within a very short period of time, and this is the major reason why many traders indulge in this practice.

                A news trader do not have to wait all day to find a good trade setup that will provide profitable trade, but quickly enter and exit the market during news time in order to make profit.

                Trading on the news times does not require sophisticated analysis which is outside the expertise of many traders, and this makes it popular among less skilled traders and beginners.

                Cons of trading the news
                Trading on the news can equally lead to significant loss within a very short period of time, and many traders sustain heavy loss during news release as well.

                The technical analysis that works at other times often fails the trader during news times making it very difficult to predict price movement. Sometimes, the price moves in the opposite direction to that which seems to be favored by the news, further adding to the confusion. This makes news trading a very unpredictable venture, and equivalent to gambling.

                The price volatility at news times, spread widening, large slippages, and platfform freezing which sometimes occur, makes news trading very risky, and capable of wiping out the trading account of even an expereinced trader.
