Trading prior to economic data

  1. Does anyone here put on positions prior to economic news such as PPI/CPI/GDP etc. in anticipation of a move off the release?

    If so, what is your strategy?
  2. Betting on volatility is probably the best way to make a quick buck on these types of opportunities.
  3. I guess i"m asking about more direct plays such as buying/shorting futures
