I was just reading about a trading strategy that sounds good on paper, but as usual im very sceptic to wheter you can employ it. This is how it works: SL: 10 pip Limit: 20 pips Therefore the win ratio is going to be 2:1 You set the entry order one min before a fundamental announcement, since the currency pair will always jump up at least 40 pips in general when these fundamental announcements do occur. So, sometimes you will lose and sometimes you will win, and in in theory the chance to win is 50%, but you will profit since your win ratio is 2:1 This sounds a bit to easy. Im sure, your broker wont accept any entry order near fundamental announcements,as the market tends to gap. However, this would work on smaller fundamental announcements. I need some opinions on this and I want to know why you cant employ this strategy successfully.
