When the news comes we find out that nothing was created and 10 thousand work places were lost.

Although I mentioned 8 pieces of news which I consider the most important, the first 5 are the ones that cause strong reactions after the news is announced. This kind of discrepancy between expectation and realization can cause a real uproar in the market and currency pairs will start flying up and down. If the news does not move the market in the first half of an hour there is a high possibility that there will not be significant price action for the rest of the day.

The key to trading on economic news is to take advantage of these movements in volatility which can last a few minutes or hours, and even days into the future. As I said in my previous article, traders mostly react to those pieces of news which are of high importance. However, those that consistently watch price action around news events will notice that mostly data from US and those countries which release their macroeconomic data during European and US sesions affects the markets. Economic news from Canada (Bank rate decision) created huge moves in Canadian dollar pairs.
