Strategy and Tactics of News Trading
Fundamentals in the guise of news releases are an important aspect of trading. The constant onslaught of news and the impact it has on prices, especially in the short term, is a FOREX fact of life. The trader's mission is to minimize its effect by tactics and maximize its value by strategy.
Tip: Each time you sit down to trade, pull up your news calendar for the currencies you are watching, not any releases that occurred while you were away and any that will come out while you are trading.
I make a vertical line on my chart, marking the time when a news announcement is released.
