Trade all the big news events safely using this simple concept.

Fully Automatic expert advisor


As you know, news events can cause extreme price fluctuations with the potential for great profits (and of course - losses). Just before a big news event and when it is announced is the most dangerous often with wild swings and big spreads.

However, just after an event, the market generally picks a direction and if the news is strong enough will keep moving. This is what we are trying to catch!

How it works

The Breaking News bot connects to a news calendar and sits on the sidelines until a few minutes after the news has been released. This keeps us out of the really messy markets.

The bot then places 2 pending STOP ORDERS above and below the current price when it wakes up in the hope that a big move will trigger one of the orders and grab some profits. This style of trading is often called a 'straddle'.

Of course, all standard money management is in place to manage the order to maximise profits and reduce potential losses very quickly.

If an order gets triggered, the other one is cancelled and the trade plays out. It then waits until the next news event. You never have to worry about missing a news opportunity again.

If the orders do not get triggered, the are cancelled after, say, 5 minutes as this means that there is no big market move.
