there was a similar story almost identical from 2011 that i saw in the search. I would think that instead of worrying about guests posting, it might be a better idea to verify some of this news being posted in here before it is posted.
hehe, i was not able to verify this story so i'm just making a consensus prediction for the record - altho' (truth be told) when the media broadcasts negative oil news the VIX jumps, right? and when the crowd jumps into gold they're getting out of USD which means USD down, right?
as it is right now: oil sideways, gold sideways, vix same, usd same, jpy down... this rumour-vooma might prove to be bs, in which case forexfactory should practice discretion if it wants to retain credibility.
Twitter posts don't have much credibility for me anyhow. I view all of them with suspicion. Most of this nonsense comes out after Europe closes when there isn't much movement anyhow. Stuck in a trade, toss out a bogus twitter post on FF and give it a whirl. You are right about the credibility factor.
