Why is this more risky? I lost 1%. there many times I make 2,5 %. And when the news is really
bad or really good. you get a strong move up or down, with a lot of profit to gain.
I what your are saying, when I looked at the trade from yesterday, I would have gained profit, when a waited after the news and then shorted the usdcad, totally true, but this is the way I trade now. Next week there are lot of news trades take for me, and they will not be profitable, but some then will.
