Forex Economic News Release
Quantina Precision Forex News Spike Trader EA (Quantina PFNS EA). We call it “precision” because our Expert Advisor is working on the tick and timing method at the same time. Quantina Precision Forex News Spike EA can be used for multiple news event-related strategies. This is a tool and not a completely automated forex robot, however, you can “set it and forget it”. Main aim to use our EA on or after forex news events or so-called Economic News Release. Economic Data are released multiple times each month and week.
Since markets move because of forex news, economic data is often the most important catalyst for short-term long-term movements. This is particularly true in the currency market, which response not only to the U.S. economic figures but also to news from all around the world.
Quantina Intelligence has been released multiple forex news-related applications, expert advisors, and indicators from 2013 till today.
Which Currencies Are The Most Influencer
With at least eight major currencies available for trading at most currency brokers, there is always a piece of economic data slated for release that forex traders can use to make informed trades. Normally, seven or more pieces of data are released almost every weekday (except holidays) from the eight major most-followed countries. So for those who choose to trade news, there are plenty of opportunities. The eight major currencies are
1. U.S. dollar (USD)
2. British pound (GBP)
3. Euro (EUR)
4. Japanese yen (JPY)
5. Canadian dollar (CAD)
6. Australian dollar (AUD)
7. New Zealand dollar (NZD)
8. Swiss franc (CHF)
Trading on news is harder than it may sound. Not only is the reported consensus figure important, but so are the whisper numbers (the unofficial and unpublished forecasts) Also, some releases are more important than others; this can be measured in terms of both the significance of the country releasing the data and the importance of the release in relation to the other pieces of data being released at the same time.

Direction at a news release is not so important and not relevant
Because with this strategy and with this EA you do not need to watch and understand the released economic data. You do not need to worry about the straddle issues and also, you do not need to afraid to spread hunter brokers. All you have to do is to use our EA and set the news date/time on it as your broker’s time zone.
High Impact News Releases
When trading news, you first have to know which releases are actually expected that week. Second, knowing which data is important is also key. Generally speaking, the most important information relates to changes in interest rates, inflation, and economic growth, like retail sales, manufacturing, and industrial production. (Investopedia) We are using the Forex Factory’s calendar to determine what is the expected level of impact at news releases. However, many other publicly available economic calendars can be found all around the internet like FX Street Calendar, or Investing’s Economic Calendar.
The Key: Retracement level after Spike at News
Based on Quantina Straddle Trader EA in 2014 the Straddle trading is described as a method of simply placing two pending orders before the economic news is released, a buy-stop and a sell-stop. The essence of this is to set a trap to capture market moves after a news release, which may go either way. If the news release comes out bullish, a bullish spike would trigger the buy-stop order and hopefully, the trader will make some money. The same applies to bearish spikes. So with straddling, the direction of a news release is not so important and not relevant, however with straddling you can get a false spike or high spread catch. A more relaxed and more wised solution is to wait for a couple of seconds after the report. Monitor closely the initial spike direction and wait for the retracement before you enter the market. With our EA you can set the waiting time where EA will monitor and record the initial spike direction and you can also set the retracement level in percentage. With pre-set of the EA you can half automatize the trading strategy.
