    Simple question to the elite traders.

    What is the average move that is anticipated when there is news.

    50 pips, 100 pips?

    I know it depends on the instrument and the news but i like to know for major news- cpi, and major cable ...eur/usd etc

    should i just wait for cpi on any currency and anticipate huge move (100 pips or more ) during the news ?

    i would love a link- googled it, i was unlucky

    thank you in advance
     
  2. that is a expansive question. Here is euro reactions to US trade deficits. Good luck
