How the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) Report Impacts Forex Trading

One of the most fundamental indicators of both financial market activity and exchange rate changes is the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) report. At its core, the GDP’s first release and its revisions influence the currency of the nation for which it is released. If the data comes out higher than expected, this is typically considered to be positive news, and the currency will often see a boost in relation to other currencies.

The Risks and Rewards of a Forex News Trading Strategy

You’ll hear the term “trading the news” routinely mentioned within the world of forex, but what does it actually mean?

July 2017 Forex Recap

I. Introduction

It is safe to say that 2017 has been (thus far) a noticeably volatile year in the world of forex trading, as the first six months of the year were very unpredictable.
