Trading Economic News (The Perfect News Trade). Range Trading GBPUSD.


Welcome to this week’s Market Blast Fundamentals.

I’m Brad Alexander and on behalf of Valutrades today we will take a look at Gold (XAUUSD), USDJPY, NZDUSD and GBPUSD.


We are seeing a bit of USD strength against most other currencies except the GBP which, as we can see from the chart, might give us good opportunities for range trading but watch out for news on COVID restrictions which may be extended in the UK.Screenshot 2021-06-14 at 11.30.46

Screenshot 2021-06-14 at 11.30.56You may wonder why we spend so much time looking at the Economic Calendar, so, as an example, let’s take a look at the last US Non-Farm Payrolls which gave the market a disappointing number.

Basically, when we trade Economic News, we look for price action moves against the trend, then open a position, in the same direction as the trend.

In the case of the last US Non-Farm Payrolls, the value of the USD fell and we were watching pairs with good trends like USDJPY, AUDUSD, and NZDUSD.Screenshot 2021-06-14 at 11.31.20

We had to be patient and wait for price to reach and reverse from the respective trend line a few days later,  but you can see the results…a nice “Buy” trade on USDJPY, and a great “Sell” trade on pairs like NZDUSD and AUDUSD.

We have put a link to our video on “Economic News Trading” at the end of this video.

Also, we can see that we have quite a few opportunities for similar trades this week including Interest Rate decisions from the US, Switzerland, and Japan.Screenshot 2021-06-14 at 11.31.33

Don’t forget, you can also trade Gold against US Economic news and we see XAUUSD at a key level of support.

We will look at Gold from the Technical perspective tomorrow.
