How MAX Members Use the Watch List

The News Watch List is important for trend traders (especially under 4 hour time frames)

  • We don’t place trades before these important times.
  • We take profits & reduce risk, (MX or XXX) before the news events.
  • We patiently wait & take advantage of any good & clear movements from the New.
    Note 2:- You do not have to observe every news item…
    Note 3:- News Events for the EUR, USD and JPY currencies could affect every other pair (e.g. USD & NFP release),
    even if the pair you are trading does not contain one of those currencies (eg AUSCAD etc).

        This warning can apply sometimes to the GBP releases. So be careful with these releases.
        However, News Events on the other currencies  (eg AUD, CHF, CAD or NZD) are unlikely to affect some of the major pairs,
         where the currency is NOT present, e.g. they are very unlikely to move, say, the EURUSD, or GBPJPY pair.
        You can decide to place less importance on that news event if you are trading the EURUSD at the time of a AUD, NZD, CAD, or CHF news release. – But nothing is guaranteed.
        An Exception – some AUD news could influence the NZD pairs, as they are in the same time zone & have similar interests & are close neighbours.

State & H4+ Column.

  • Major = Important News especially for Hourly & faster timeframes.
  • H4+ = Watch these News Events if you trade higher time-frames  (H4, H8, H12,  D1 etc)
  • “! Major & ! Monitor” (none this week)
          = These items can be worth while to watch for potential large movements. 
  • Monitor = Not as Important, but be more vigilant/aggressive at these times.
          Chinese News can affect NZD & AUD currencies
  • Tentative  =  Check www.ForexFactory.com closer to the date for a more precise time.
  • ” + “  Items marked with the “+” after Major/Monitor indicate that this Currency can have an impact on multiple pairs.
    (Not just the pairs the in which the currency occurs.)

Pre-News Bias column.

  • Use this column to help determine the better trade direction of a pair, based on the Currency’s bias.
  • Bearish/Bullish/Neutral  –  refers to the Currency’s  potential bias.
  • TBA     – To Be Announced
           Check the News on ForexFactory etc for updates & compare the news event’s Present value with the Forecast.
  • Note: The bias is valid until the News is announced, then the bias can change depending on the outcome of the News.
                Note – the bias is for the Currency  & not a Pair.
             eg if AUD Currency is Bullish, then there is a Long Bias on the AUDJPY Pair & a Short Bias on the EURAUD).
  • Note 1:-  Currency vs Pair… eg if AUD Currency is Bullish, then there is a Long Bias on the AUDJPY Pair & Short Bias on the EURAUD).

Disclaimer: While we take every care to put these together for you, it is up to you to check the information.  Please ask if you have any questions.

How MAX Members Use the Watch List

The News Watch List is important for trend traders (especially under 4 hour time frames)

  • We don’t place trades before these important times.
  • We take profits & reduce risk, (MX or XXX) before the news events.
  • We patiently wait & take advantage of any good & clear movements from the New.
    Note 2:- You do not have to observe every news item…
    Note 3:- News Events for the EUR, USD and JPY currencies could affect every other pair (e.g. USD & NFP release),
    even if the pair you are trading does not contain one of those currencies (eg AUSCAD etc).

        This warning can apply sometimes to the GBP releases. So be careful with these releases.
        However, News Events on the other currencies  (eg AUD, CHF, CAD or NZD) are unlikely to affect some of the major pairs,
         where the currency is NOT present, e.g. they are very unlikely to move, say, the EURUSD, or GBPJPY pair.
        You can decide to place less importance on that news event if you are trading the EURUSD at the time of a AUD, NZD, CAD, or CHF news release. – But nothing is guaranteed.
        An Exception – some AUD news could influence the NZD pairs, as they are in the same time zone & have similar interests & are close neighbours.

State & H4+ Column.

  • Major = Important News especially for Hourly & faster timeframes.
  • H4+ = Watch these News Events if you trade higher time-frames  (H4, H8, H12,  D1 etc)
  • “! Major & ! Monitor”
          = These items can be worth while to watch for potential large movements. 
  • Monitor = Not as Important, but be more vigilant/aggressive at these times.
          Chinese News can affect NZD & AUD currencies
  • Tentative  =  Check www.ForexFactory.com closer to the date for a more precise time.
  • ” + “  Items marked with the “+” after Major/Monitor indicate that this Currency can have an impact on multiple pairs.
    (Not just the pairs the in which the currency occurs.)

Pre-News Bias column.

  • Use this column to help determine the better trade direction of a pair, based on the Currency’s bias.
  • Bearish/Bullish/Neutral  –  refers to the Currency’s  potential bias.
  • TBA     – To Be Announced
           Check the News on ForexFactory etc for updates & compare the news event’s Present value with the Forecast.
  • Note: The bias is valid until the News is announced, then the bias can change depending on the outcome of the News.
                Note – the bias is for the Currency  & not a Pair.
             eg if AUD Currency is Bullish, then there is a Long Bias on the AUDJPY Pair & a Short Bias on the EURAUD).
  • Note 1:-  Currency vs Pair… eg if AUD Currency is Bullish, then there is a Long Bias on the AUDJPY Pair & Short Bias on the EURAUD).

Disclaimer: While we take every care to put these together for you, it is up to you to check the information.  Please ask if you have any questions.

How MAX Members Use the Watch List

The News Watch List is important for trend traders (especially under 4 hour time frames)

  • We don’t place trades before these important times.
  • We take profits & reduce risk, (MX or XXX) before the news events.
  • We patiently wait & take advantage of any good & clear movements from the New.
    Note 2:- You do not have to observe every news item…
    Note 3:- News Events for the EUR, USD and JPY currencies could affect every other pair (e.g. USD & NFP release),
    even if the pair you are trading does not contain one of those currencies (eg AUSCAD etc).

        This warning can apply sometimes to the GBP releases. So be careful with these releases.
        However, News Events on the other currencies  (eg AUD, CHF, CAD or NZD) are unlikely to affect some of the major pairs,
         where the currency is NOT present, e.g. they are very unlikely to move, say, the EURUSD, or GBPJPY pair.
        You can decide to place less importance on that news event if you are trading the EURUSD at the time of a AUD, NZD, CAD, or CHF news release. – But nothing is guaranteed.
        An Exception – some AUD news could influence the NZD pairs, as they are in the same time zone & have similar interests & are close neighbours.

State & H4+ Column.

  • Major = Important News especially for Hourly & faster timeframes.
  • H4+ = Watch these News Events if you trade higher time-frames  (H4, H8, H12,  D1 etc)
  • “! Major & ! Monitor”
          = These items can be worth while to watch for potential large movements. 
  • Monitor = Not as Important, but be more vigilant/aggressive at these times.
          Chinese News can affect NZD & AUD currencies
  • Tentative  =  Check www.ForexFactory.com closer to the date for a more precise time.
  • ” + “  Items marked with the “+” after Major/Monitor indicate that this Currency can have an impact on multiple pairs.
    (Not just the pairs the in which the currency occurs.)

Pre-News Bias column.

  • Use this column to help determine the better trade direction of a pair, based on the Currency’s bias.
  • Bearish/Bullish/Neutral  –  refers to the Currency’s  potential bias.
  • TBA     – To Be Announced
           Check the News on ForexFactory etc for updates & compare the news event’s Present value with the Forecast.
  • Note: The bias is valid until the News is announced, then the bias can change depending on the outcome of the News.
                Note – the bias is for the Currency  & not a Pair.
             eg if AUD Currency is Bullish, then there is a Long Bias on the AUDJPY Pair & a Short Bias on the EURAUD).
  • Note 1:-  Currency vs Pair… eg if AUD Currency is Bullish, then there is a Long Bias on the AUDJPY Pair & Short Bias on the EURAUD).

Disclaimer: While we take every care to put these together for you, it is up to you to check the information.  Please ask if you have any questions.
