Hi, I see a lot of people here trading technically, whether it' s daytrading, scalping or system trading or what else. Are there people out there trading only off news? You know, ups and downgrades, m&a, earnings, oil stories, breaking news. I' m asking that because it' s the way I trade : only off news. For example, Friday was a nice day, with oil and software stocks. There was also that retail sales, but this one didn't work (I tried to short WMT, following weak retail sales, but it didn't work). By the way, I absolutely have nothing against technical traders and I don' t mean to pretend they trade the wrong way. Each one with its own method : the one he feels comfortable with (I felt the need to precise that following some reactions I saw on those boards : some people are extremely susceptible it seems . So, if someone trades off news and wants to share some experiences, it would be nice.
