HI

So other than the FOMC announcements? What other news, on the economic calender, has great effect on the market?

What other news events should you watch for before the trading day?

HI

Too loud man.

Try: Forex Calendar @ Forex Factory if you want to be aware of when events are happening. I wouldn't plan on trading off them or most headlines, which are usually nothing more than manipulated noise.

Yes, just use the news release announcement times, etcetera as indications of when to expect flat, noisy, thin, fast or jittery markets and maybe stay out for a while. Sometimes it's just an anticlimax, sometimes the headlines are just deliberate headfakes and played as such by the big boys who are getting fed the releases early or paying the media to output the right (wrong) timed copy.

News is always and only ever an attempt to rationalise what happened in the markets, if you start to analyse it over a longer time period you will quickly realise that they often use the same reason to explain up or down - useful!

I believe that you should trade the chart and what makes sense to you, but to don blindfolds by ignoring everything buy the chart is dangerous, and danger means losses or lost opportunities.

Economic indicators which move the market in priority.

1. NFP -Biggest mover of market as of now.
2. ISM - Comes prior to NFP so imp.
3. Chicago PMI - since it comes last in the month its a predictor for NFP.

I like to use this calendar: Economic Calendar: Financial Calendars - Yahoo! Finance
It helps me be aware of when to be careful in the market.
I don't trade off the news though, so your needs may vary, but it's kept me from getting unpleasantly surprised many times.
