DislikedI would, however, like for you, if it's possible and not too much of a trouble to consider adding a news filter which has a granularity of less than a day. Say, the ability to instruct the EA to refrain from trading X minuted before AND/OR Y minutes after the set time, or maybe even a filter saying something like "Don't trade X minutes before/after RED/ORANGE/YELLOW news", checking say, FF's calendar for said news' time.Ignored
What if there are trades in play prior to news and you've shut down your ability to trade or have the logic manage trades?
Granted, nothing new would be added, but when do you actually resume trading?
The idea of closing the day to trading and being able to select trade times, will effectively do the same in that, after any news period, you can just disable a time filter or turn the day back on...gives more user control and if you aren't there to turn the day back on, less risk.
