High Impact News Events and Risk Management

In today’s lesson, we are going to demonstrate an example of price action trading on the daily chart. The lesson has a message if a high impact news event comes in between, what daily traders should do?. Let us get started.


This is EURJPY daily chart. The chart produces a bullish engulfing candle, which suggests that the buyers may dominate in the pair. Traders on different time frames may get themselves ready to go long on the pair. Traders who trade on the daily chart, they are to wait for the price to consolidate and produce a bullish reversal candle to go long on the pair. Let us proceed to the next chart.

The pair produces another bullish candle before creating the corrective candle. It means the buyers on the H4, H1, or 15M may have found some entries and drove the price towards the North last day. Anyway, the daily traders may keep an eye on the pair to go long upon a bullish engulfing candle closing above the last candle’s highest high.

Here it comes. A bullish engulfing candle closes above the daily resistance. The buyers may trigger a long entry right after the candle closes by setting stop loss below the candle’s lowest low. The nearest significant swing high is quite far away. It offers a tremendous reward considering the risk.

The price heads towards the North for one more candle. However, it does not get as bullish as expected. The good thing is it is a bullish candle. The buyers must hold the trade at least up to the level, which offers 1:1 risk-reward.

The pair produces a doji candle. The price hits the level, which offers 1:1 risk-reward. Then, it ends up producing a candle, which neither a bullish nor a bearish candle. Technically, the buyers shall take out at least 50% profit and let the rest of it run. As far as the price action is concerned, the price still may go towards the North further. I may give you information that this is the Wednesday market dated 11/09/2019. Here I have something interesting to show you before we start Thursday trading.
