Using the News in Forex Tradingby Siam Luu
As a forex trader, do not trade off of what is seen and read in the news but do not neglect the news either. Because of the delay between the time an event occurs and the time the news hits the press and the time the forex trader updates his or her forex positions, the forex volumes will not occur all at once. It may seem quick and almost instantaneous at times but different traders have different news sources thereby affecting volume levels differently. Therefore, due to the high volatility of forex, it is a good idea to be informed about events, but not to trade on them.
