Forex Trading on Economic Indicators

A good or bad report on unemployment will not necessarily mean a change in currency exchange rates. For instance, assume an investor is interested in the exchange rate between the USD and the Euro. If the quarterly GDP figures showed a solid 5% increase for the U.S. economy but a lackluster 2% increase for the euro zone, an inexperienced Forex trader might assume that the dollar would rise against the Euro.
