I'm going to test this strategy. I am guessing that the unemployment data and NFP data will be either better than expected, or at expectations. I'm just betting that it won't be drastically worse. So I'll go long the s&p emini future and plan to hold for 1 or a few days. This is all still fake money. My TradeStation account won't let me place the fake trade on my SIM account, giving me the error of "Invalid symbol ES for the asset type FU".
