From what I have seen in futures, the spikes are usually during times that are known to the trader. Can I assume that this is also true in forex?

I was talking about Forex in my original post. Just to clarify, since you were referring to the Eurodollar and Forex trading.
Regards

This is simply not true. I hope you realize that futures contracts are a very diverse group of products. There are futures contracts on stock indices, oil, metals, currencies, etc... Are you saying that the 6E usually has volatility during known times, while the underlying spot market EUR/USD usually has volatility during unknown times? I trust that you see the fallacy in your argument.

I should have added more detail. I was referring to futures (ES). I was referring to when the ES futures market (open, closes and FED ). During these times the market moves really wild. I seen on occasion the ES move 15 points during these times. During the other times, it is somewhat (loosely) more controlled.

Definitely wouldn't recommend it for a new person that has never traded high impact news before for a scalp. Sometimes it's better to let the big money go through it's drama and let it subside.

Greek issue.

In the coming weeks must be very careful due to the Greek issue. There may be sudden fast shake up/down.

Take your Pips, go out and Live.

Agreed. I wonder whether we will see any big gaps/volatility after this weekends referendum and more importantly what Greece's government's decision will be... Keeping a EUR/USD position over the weekend would be risky.

I know it is a educated guess, but how long do you think the Greece meltdown will effect the forex market?

No it is not truth. There may be up and down in the market but every time trading with EUR/USD is not always risky.
