What percentage of your day trading strategy, if any, involves the news? For example, from sources such as: Bloomberg, CNBC, Breifing.com, etc. I am relatively new to trading (part time for about 6 months) and I have been pretty successful at quickly placing trades strictly based on how I think the market will react to a story, upgrade/downgrade, earnings, etc. I prefer to watch news feeds rather than charts. Can trading on the news be a long-term successful strategy or have I just been lucky? The reason I ask is because I would like to eventually do this full time and I would rather not get too caught up in TA if its not necessary.
