News Makes the Forex Market Move

Forex News

It’s not enough to only know technical analysis when you trade. It’s just as important to know what makes the forex market move.

Just like in the great Star Wars world, behind the trend lines, double tops, and head and shoulder patterns, there is a fundamental force behind these movements. This force is called the news!

To understand the importance of the news, imagine this scenario (purely fictional of course!)

Let’s say, on your nightly news, there is a report that the biggest software company that you have stock with just filed bankruptcy.

What’s the first thing you would do? How would your perception of this company change? How do you think other people’s perceptions of this company would change?

The obvious reaction would be that you would immediately sell off your shares. In fact, this is probably what just about everyone else who had any stake in that company would do.

The fact is that news affects the way we perceive and act on our trading decisions. It’s no different when it comes to trading currencies.

There is, however, a distinct difference with how news is handled in the stock market and the forex market.

Let’s go back to our example above and imagine that you heard that same report of the big software company filing bankruptcy, but let’s say you heard the report a day before it was actually announced in the news.

Forex News Trading

Naturally you would sell off all your shares, and as a result of you hearing the news a day earlier, you would make (save) more money than everyone else who heard it on their nightly news.

Sounds good for you right? Unfortunately this little trick is called INSIDER TRADING, and it would have you thrown in jail.

Martha Stewart did it and now she has a nice mug-shot to go along with her magazine covers.

In the stock market, when you hear news before everyone else it is illegal. In the forex market, it’s called FAIR GAME!

The earlier you hear or see the news, the better it is for your trading, and there is absolutely no penalty for it!

Add on some technology and the power of instant communication, and what you have is the latest and greatest (or not so greatest) news at the tip of your fingers.

This is great… Uhmmm… “news” for retail traders because it allows U.S. to react fairly quickly to the market’s speculations.

Big traders, small traders, husky traders, or skinny traders all have to depend on the same news to make the market move because if there wasn’t any news, the market would hardly move at all!

The news is important to the forex market because it’s the news that makes it move. Regardless of the technicals, news is the fuel that keeps the forex market going!

新闻的重要性

       当您在做交易的时候,光只是懂得技术性分析是不够的。知道是什么在推动市场,也同样很重要。
   
       就像在伟大的Star Wars世界一样,在隐藏所有的趋势线、双顶、头与肩等等的形态背后,有一种原始的自然原动力,这种原力就称为 新闻数据

       为了更好的理解新闻数据的重要性,请试着想象以下这种情况(当然是纯属虚构!)

       比方说,在您的晚间新闻中,有一条报道说,您持有的股票中,一家最大的软件公司刚刚申请了破产。

       什么是您可能会做的第一件事?您对这家公司的看法会有何改变?您怎么看待其他人对这家公司的看法?

       最明显的反应应该是,您会立刻抛售手上的股票。实际上,这可能是每个拥有该公司股份的人,都会做的事。

       事实就是,该新闻影响了我们的认知,和我们在交易时的决策行动。这种情况在交易货币时,也是一样的。

       虽然是这样,但是处理新闻的方式,股票市场和外汇市场,有着显著的差异。

       让我们回到上面的例子,并想象一下您刚听到一家最大的软件公司申请破产。但是这时,您是在它实际发布新闻的前一天听说的。
         理所当然您会卖掉所有的股票,而且由于您是早一天听到消息的,你会比那些在晚间新闻里,听到这则新闻的人赚(省)更多的钱。

       这个消息听起来,对你而言很棒吧?但不幸的是,这个小伎俩就是所谓的 内情交易,这种方式将会让您被扔进监狱的。

       著名的女亿万富豪Martha Stewart就这样做了,现在她有了一个漂亮的大头照,放在她的杂志封面。

       在股票市场上,如果您比其他人更早的听到新闻消息,这是种非法的行为。但在外汇市场上,这是所谓的 公平游戏!

       您越早听到或看到新闻消息,就越有利于您的交易,并且绝对不会受到刑罚。

       添加一些新的技术,和优越的即时通信工具,让你在弹指间就可以获得最新,或最棒的(也许并不值那么棒)新闻。

       “新闻”是非常棒的....呃....对于散户交易者来说,因为它使我们对市场的投机情况,可以迅速的做出反应。

       大型交易者们、小型交易者们、大方交易者们,还是吝啬的交易者们,都依靠同样的新闻来推动市场。所以如果没有任何新闻,那市场就几乎不会有走势了。

       对于外汇市场来说,新闻非常的重要。因为新闻造成市场的移动。抛开技术性因素,新闻是保持市场不断移动的燃料!
