Important Economic News Events to be cautious of:
It is important to understand the nature of some of the High Impact economic news events relating to the Euro and US Dollar. Trading around these events should be done with caution. If you want to trade around these events to cash in on some of the high volatility and rapid price movement in the markets, we recommend starting the EA shortly before the news is released. This reduces the possibility of having larger lot-sized levels open, which helps reduce risk. You may also want to reduce your TP levels at these times to scalp the market when prices are moving rapidly, to maybe 20 TP.
