As an intraday trader how do you handle the release economic figures? Very often, to hold a position before their release seems to be worse than rolling dice. On the other hand sometimes the best move of the day happens immediately and instantaneously after the release of the figures. Personally I think it is best not to have a positions before the release of major pieces of data and see what trends are established after their release and attempt to find opportunities to get on those trends. What do you suggest and how do you approach this problem?
