Well, I must say, my broker (IFX) didn't let me down today. It was my first time attempting to trade the news, and around 2 minutes before the GDP numbers were released, I placed two entry stops on GBPUSD, short at 1.8542, long at 1.8565. After the release of the data, the system went blank for a while, then out popped a message... "your order has been executed at 1.8565". Wow, no slippage! Anyway, I got out 2 minutes later at 1.8633 for a quick 68 pip profit. Not a bad way to end the week hehe. Anyway just wanted to share my experience, hope we all made some pips today! Have a good weekend everyone!
