News Trading Tips
If the price move keeps going, great. But you are just as likely to see a pullback and massive DD first, so your profit is likely to be minimal even then, and if the initial spike was an incorrect knee-jerk and the actual reaction is opposite once the market digests it, then double whammy, and massive loss.
I tried fundamentaltrader, secretnewsweapon and macrospike. MacroSpike is the best in my opinion, because they are taking the concept of trading the news further and have a scientific approach that factors in the fundamental landscape.

The server is the core system which handles the news feed, client data, and news trading strategy. Signals are sent from the server to the client app, which is mostly in the form of an EA, Indicator or Scripts installed in the trader's subscriber trading platform. The client app connects to the server from the trading platform where it picks the signal to straddle the news release.
Other functions such as deleting and modifying orders can be controlled from the server or the client system. The system generates its decision to buy or sell through its inbuilt logic, which checks the difference between the forecast and previous figures to ascertain if the deviation figure is met.
