US Government Shutdown and How to Trade It

I was surprised by the news when it was revealed that the US Government will be shutting down. This could be a great opportunity if you’re that kind of trader. How can we make money with this news?

The answer is… You don’t trade.

This site has been created for the sole purpose of teaching myself how to trade forex. By documenting it, I realized that people have also been able to make something out of it and help them get started. During the years I have been trading, there’s always 1 rule that I always remember when I hear news like this. Follow your trading plan.

Your trading plan has a purpose. You created that plan. If a news comes out, and you abandon it, you’re into a world of trouble. Part of trading forex is the discipline to say NO, no matter how enticing the news might be for you to make a profit.

Always remember to never trade the news. If you’re a kind of trader that uses the news, then thats good. More power to you. Why the hell are you on my site by the way? :)
