  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Key Economic News Releases

This weekend had some historic moves due to Economic news releases.

I thought it would be a good idea to have an archive of the key releases.

Two big ones come to mind that the markets appeared to be waiting for all week. Then, finally, on Friday
when all the news was in hand, the markets could move freely again with good structure and flow.

When the market is waiting for these statements, it is low volume chop fest.

ECB - The Eurozone kept rates unchanged which sent EUR / USD through the roof.

something also correlated with the yen crosses. Thankfully I was long in some of them.
EUR / JPY ...... these really make my Friday ...


NFP (non farm payroll) It seems like the indices were waiting for this number all week .

Please list any other key news releases here that have a history of moving the markets.

Knowledge and experience is the best weapon we have in achieving our financial goals.
