Which News Releases Should I Trade?

Before we even look at strategies for trading news events, we have to look at which news events are even worth trading.

Remember that we are trading the news because of its ability to increase volatility in the short term, so naturally we would like to only trade news that has the best forex market moving potential.

While the markets react to most economic news from various countries, the biggest movers and most watched news comes from the U.S.

The reason is that the U.S. has the largest economy in the world and the U.S. Dollar is the world’s reserve currency. This means that the U.S. Dollar is a participant in about 90% of all forex transactions, which makes U.S. news and data important to watch.

With that said, let’s take a look at some of the most volatile news for the U.S.

 

Most volatile news reports in the forex market
In addition to inflation reports and central bank talks, you should also pay attention to geo-political newssuch as war, natural disasters, political unrest, and elections. Although these may not have as big an impact as the other news, it’s still worth paying attention to them.

 

When our economic guru Forex Gump is in a good mood, he usually releases a Piponomics article on upcoming news reports that you can play and with trade strategies to boot! Check out some of his articles of this sort:

Also, keep an eye on moves in the stock market. There are times where sentiment in the equity markets will be the precursor to major moves in the forex market.

Now that we know which news events make the most moves, our next step is to determine which currency pairs are worth trading.

Because news can bring increased volatility in the forex market (and more trading opportunities), it is important that we trade currencies that are liquid. Liquid currency pairs give us a reassurance that our orders will be executed smoothly and without any “hiccups”.

  1. EUR/USD
  2. GBP/USD
  3. USD/JPY
  4. USD/CHF
  5. USD/CAD
  6. AUD/USD

Did you notice anything here?

That’s right! These are all major currency pairs!

Remember, because they have the most liquidity, majors pairs usually have the tightest spreads. Since spreads widen when news reports come out, it makes sense to stick with those pairs that have the tightest spreads to begin with.

Now that we know which news events and currency pairs to trade, let’s take a look at some approaches to trading the news.

 

什么新闻值得交易?

       在我们找到新闻交易策略之前,我们需要知道,那些新闻事件时值得交易的。

       记住,我们进行新闻交易是因为,新闻公布后市场的波动性会明显增加,所以,我们自然只会交易那些最能引起市场波动的新闻。

       尽管外汇市场对不同国家公布的绝大多数经济新闻会做出反应,但是,对市场造成最大影响,且关注度最高的新闻还是来自美国。

       原因在于,美国是全球最大经济体,而且美元是全球储备货币。这意味着在全球外汇交易中,90%涉及到美元交易,这使得来自美国的新闻和数据颇为值得关注。

       现在,就让我们看看美国方面能够引起市场最大波动的新闻和数据吧!

  

       除了通胀报告和央行官员讲话之外,你也应该地缘政治方面的新闻保持高度警惕,比如说战争、自然灾害、政治动荡以及大选等。尽管这些新闻可能不会像其他重要新闻那样引起市场巨大波动,但是,我们仍然需要对这些新闻给予重视。

       同时,我们也需要对股票市场走势保持关注。很多时候,股票市场的情绪会成为外汇市场走势的先导。

       既然我们已经知道了哪些新闻事件会导致外汇市场的最大波动,我们下一步就是确定哪些货币对是值得交易的。

       由于新闻会给增加外汇市场的波动性,并制造更多的交易机会,我们所交易的货币具有流动性十分重要。具有流动性的货币能够让我们确信,我们的定单能够被顺利执行,并不会出现卡壳情况。

          1. 欧元/美元

          2. 英镑/美元

          3. 美元/日元

          4. 美元/瑞郎

          5. 美元/加元

          6. 澳元/美元

       在这里你注意到一些问题吗?

       是的,这些货币对都是主要货币对!

       记住,由于这些货币对所具备的流动性最大,交易它们的点差通常也最低。由于在新闻或报告出炉后进行交易,点差会扩大,我们从这些具有最低点差的货币对开始交易非常有必要。

       现在,我们知道了哪些新闻事件和货币对可以进行交易,在下节课中,我们将重点学习,如何交易新闻。
