News Events/Reports and How They Correlate with That Days Market Activity

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

Im pretty new face around here at TL but i have a passion for trading more so the E-MINI S&P this previous week i have noticed that since the ISM MFG reports were good the market also shot up a great deal, same follows with the unemployment reports on friday.. good news = big uptrend in the market that day. Basically the question is how many of you guys have kept journals regarding these correlations and what input can you offer me based on your experiences.

 

What days are likely to produce up/down trends based on news releases/reports, What days you should be wary to trade on following a specific report etc.. discuss i think this would be beneficial for a lot of e-mini traders on here.

 

youngest,

 

cheers :cool:

There's a lot of direction we could go in discussing news and trading.

 

Here are a few things that have served me well.

 

If you daytrade the markets will move beyond your target or stop with important news. If you go to the Economic Calendar here on TL at: Economic Calendar any of the High rated reports will likely move the market it is influencing (usually the geo location of that report)

 

And, I always say it's a coin toss with the report. Meaning you have about 50/50 odds it will go for or against you. And, one thing that sometimes makes news trading more difficult is when it goes your way you will almost always get executed exactly at your limit order - rare to get positive slippage. And, if you get stopped out, it is actually somewhat common to get slippage -- and not executed at your stop. So with a 50/50 chance of success, and the fact that you will rarely get positive slippage but can get negative it's not a great coin toss.

 

What I do is if I'm in a position ahead of the news I tend to hold through the news and except my fate. However, if I'm not in a trade and I get a set-up 5 minutes or closer to the report I ignore it - I won't take the trade. And, then I'll take the next signal, or try and get in synch with the one I filtered out no sooner than 2 minutes after news up to 5 minutes after news.

 

I find this to be far safer and less like gambling -- which usually isn't good for your trading account.

 

What I will say though is news can be great - it really is what powers a market up and down so I'm not saying you should avoid it like the plague - just have a very specific and consistent way of handling it.

 

Also, the monthly jobs report -- I actually go flat ahead of that -- example, a month ago I was long on an index and was traveling so didn't get flat. It went against me and I had huge slippage. This time, on Friday I was able to go flat. What happened? It gapped up my way - I would have profited quite significantly. However, I know I did the right thing even though it backfired on me this time - because next time the odds say the reverse will happen. And, I'm not smart enough to guess the numbers these reports will release -- nor do I imagine can anyone.

 

Hope that helps.

Unless you gamble, it is always wise to stay away from news event.most news are done around 10 est, so you still have more than 6 hours to trade.

 

I only trade til 11 or 11:30 and there usually a setup shortly after the news

I did not mean neccesarily trading the news report at the time it is released, Was referring more to how the over all trading day unfolds after a certain news event. Has anyone kept a journal of this? as for how the day unfolds after a FOMC or ISM, Unemployment etc.. seems to be alot more probability of a trend day when the news is an extreme good/bad. hope that made it clearer !

It will be interesting to know if anyone has it to that level of detail.

 

What I can say based upon my observation, not logging every event of course, but over 15 years trading is the extreme misses or beats of the numbers are the ones that lead to big reactions and trends.

 

However, I've been shocked many times to see a big move or gap - reach a quick point of exhaustion and quickly reverse.

 

I find that numbers that come in-line or just above/below tend to have a short lived reaction.

 

I have my doubts that there is any really reliable play that can be made strictly based upon the level of the hit/miss of these key reports.

 

Just my observation.

I totally agree. Dont forget that it's not always what the news is, but how people interpret the news. Good news to you and I may not be so for the market.

 

What would be your strategy for trading the news? A bracket around the price? I've seen on multiple occasions where a trader was filled on both bracketed orders in a split second taking a big loss.

 

I think there is a reason you see your DOM or Trading Think out prior to news releases. The pros are telling you to get out and trade the reaction.

I agree with the earlier comments. Trading around news can be very difficult. I also like to sit out a couple minutes before the release and thet get back in a few minutes after. Often times you will see an action-reaction-action move. You will get an initial move right at the release followed by a reaction in the opposite direction then finally a third move back in the direction of the original move.

 

Even if you find a way to get an edge around news you need to keep in mind the possible slippage. You can really get some nasty fills trading around news.

Apr 28, 2001 The U.S. news at 8:30 am this morning was bad. Where was the bottom of the SP e-mini today? At 8:30am. Wait! Hold on! The news was BAD, and then the ES went up all day? Yes, that's right. The second the bad news at 8:30 came out, the es bottomed and started going up. Why? Probably in anticipation of the 10am news. And the 10am news was unexpectedly good. Pending home sales were way up. Does somebody know something before the official new release? Who knows? The reality is, that the ES seems to somehow (magically?) move towards a price that reflects the real news, way before it's released.

I don't keep a journal of how news moves the markets, because I rarely see a usable pattern, it keeps changing over time.

 

Expectations rule, they set the table. News so often has the exact opposite impact than what "logic" would deem an appropriate response by the crowd. Just like a lot of other things in the market, it can be rather random and hard to predict.

 

Occasionally real money can be made, if one waits until clarity appears after the frenzy.

 

Wednesday CL dipped with the bad news of a much larger than expected inventory increase in crude oil, and then went up about 2 dollars within an hour and 15 minutes. Not exceptionally predictable or logical, but for some was very profitable!

its a combination of the overriding trend - bull markets tend to ignore bad news

a combination of the current context and mood - is the market nervous, bouyant, bearish, bullish

a combination of expectation and then the magnitude of that the potential influence of those expectations and the possible move - eg; bad news might cause a market to fall for a day, and then rally as its in an uptrend

the fact that often news is actually historically reported

the fact that news is often based on opinion and not fact

this then leads to incorrect assumptions

the fact that news is often irrelevant, its not news, its a small piece of the jigsaw.......

This is often why I dont listen to the news

    • Date : 27th November 2020.FX Update – November 27 – Sterling in FocusGBPUSD, H1Narrow ranges have been prevailing in risk-cautious trading. The USDIndex settled around the 92.00 level, above yesterday’s 12-week low at 91.84. EURUSD remained buoyant but off from the 12-day peak seen yesterday at 1.1942. Cable also held within its Thursday range. USDJPY ebbed to a four-day low at 103.91. The Yen was concurrently steady versus the Euro and the Pound, but posted respective two- and four-day lows against the Australian and Canadian Dollars. AUDUSD ticked fractionally higher, which was still sufficient to lift the pair into 12-week high terrain above 0.7380. NZDUSD posted a new 29-month peak at 0.7030. USDCAD remained heavy but just above recent 17-day lows. Bitcoin, which performed strongly this year on the back of dollar liquidity, found a toehold, but remained over 12% down on its recent highs.US markets will reopen after yesterday’s Thanksgiving holiday, but market conditions will remain on the thin side. President Trump said that he will leave the White House if the Electoral College votes for Biden, which may be as close to formally conceding the election as he will go. A sharp focus remains on EU and UK talks, with a face-to-face round reportedly taking place in London over the weekend. There are now reports that the EU parliament might convene as late as December 28 to ratify a deal, if necessary.The spectre of a no-deal hangs over proceedings, though the consensus, as judged by the ongoing stability of the Pound, remains for a narrow deal to be reached.Always trade with strict risk management.

    • Date : 26th November 2020.Brexit endgame remains in sharp focus!The USD has remained soft in quiet conditions, while global asset markets have seen little direction. The US Thanksgiving holiday has quelled activity. Europe’s Stoxx 600 traded near flat. Most stock markets in Asia gained, though remained off recent highs. The MSCI World Index is also off its highs, but remained buoyant and on course for a record monthly increase this month. Copper posted a new near 7-year high, and while other base metal prices were also underpinned most remained off recent trend highs. Oil prices saw modest declines after recent gains, which culminated in a nine-month high yesterday.The Brexit endgame remains in sharp focus!Sterling has seen limited direction, continuing to hold gains from month-ago levels of around 1.5% to 2.5% versus the Dollar, Euro and Yen. There is still no breakthrough in down-to-the-wire negotiations between the EU and UK, and there are lots of warnings of border chaos and, from external BoE MPC member Saunders, of long-lasting economic consequences in the event of a no deal exit from the common market.European Commission president von der Leyen said “we are ready to be creative” to get a deal while repeating that “we are not ready to put into question the integrity of the single market.” An Irish government member said that a deal was “imperative” for everyone.The steadiness in the Pound, the principal conduit of financial market Brexit sentiment, reveals that investors remain unperturbed. One explanation is the real money participants are sitting on their collective hands, positioning for an expected deal but waiting on concrete developments and details, while maintaining vigilance on the possibility of there being a no deal by accident.Short-term speculative participants, meanwhile, don’t seem to have had a fruitful time in trying to play the fatiguing myriad news headlines and endless deadlines that have come and gone. The latest and supposedly final deadline, is next Tuesday — December 1 — which leaves just one month for a deal to be ratified on both sides of the Channel. We expect to a deal to materialize at the last minute, just as the withdrawal agreement was seemingly pulled out of the hat at the ultimate minute a year ago. There may even be a fudged extension.Pressure on the UK government is intense. US president-elect Biden warned London that the scope for a deal with the US would be compromised if there is a return of a hard border on Ireland — which is what could happen in a no-deal scenario (the UK government would have the choice between maintaining a free-flowing border on Ireland at the price of breaking up the border integrity of the UK, and possible protests and even violence from loyalists, or breaking the EU withdrawal agreement, which would result in a hard Irish land border).A leaked Whitehall document warns of a “perfect storm” of chaos in the event of a no-deal in the Covid-19 era. There are also pressures on the other side of the Channel to reach an accord. While French President Macron has political incentive to put up a show of fighting over fishing rights, he is not likely to carry through on his threat to veto any deal as other key EU states don’t see the UK’s position on fishing as being unreasonable. France and other nations, and the UK, also need to maintain good relations for security and many other practical reasons.As for the market impact of a deal, much will depend on how narrow the deal is. The narrower it is, the bigger the negative impact on both the UK and EU’s terms of trade positions will be on January 1, particularly the UK’s.Always trade with strict risk management.

    • Those who take quick and payday loans and refuse to pay them back are now hooked.   Normally, it is not a good thing to go into debt unless that is your last resort. We know that people are fond of borrowing and they seriously hate paying it back. Even when it comes to paying back what was borrowed, your creditor will become your enemy. Such is the nature of human beings.   Debtors don’t want to return money even when they eventually have means of repayment. If anyone borrows money and returns it, it means the person has a Godly spirit in him.   If people ponder the power of compound interest, they would stay away from loans. If you pay 1.33% or 1.79% interest per month on a loan, you will need to pay back roughly 16% or 20% per annum. And this will begin to compound as long as you don’t pay.   Most borrowers who are now in trouble have realized that the interest rates are eventually higher than the capitals borrowed. They realize that the creditors are using an indirect way to enslave borrowers (go and work for me, bring back the capital plus profits).   The banks themselves know that business environment is very tough and are now indirectly asking people to work with or spend the banks’ funds and bring the funds plus profits back to them. Many borrowers really have poor mentality and they don’t know the gravity of what they’re putting themselves into.   If a bank could lend out 1 billion USD per annum, it would reap a return of 150 million USD (at least on paper). Do you think they will forget about you if you owe them even a small amount?   Loans without collateral are now popular. But your collateral is your BVN – unless you don’t want to operate accounts again in the country.   I have heard people saying” Don’t pay to my Access Bank account again, but pay into my UBA bank account.” “Don’t send that cash into my GTBank account again, but send it to Zenith Bank.” It’s like postponing the evil day.   Ti iya o ba i tii je eniyan, iya nri nkan panu lowo ni (Yoruba adage). I literally means: If Suffering has not come to attack you, it means Suffering is currently busy with something. If you think you can avoid payment by abandoning the account you used to borrow money, you’re only postponing the evil day.   They cannot come for you when your debt is small, but the debt will begin to compound and compound till it would make sense for them to come for you.   BAD NEWS FOR DEBTORS CBN has given banks permission to deduct from funds a debtor has in another bank account. For example, if you borrow quick loans from FCMB and you abandon your FCMB account and you are now operating another account with First Bank, FCMB can make a request to First Bank, and the money you owed will be deducted once or gradually from your account at First Bank, without your permission.   Would you now keep money at home, so that bad boys will come to you to take their dues?   Borrowing isn’t a good thing, no matter how plausible it looks.   Profits from games of knowledge: https://www.predictmag.com/
