News can massively impact the forex market to the point that it moves – ForexLive
The importance of keeping tabs with the latest news

buying. Evidently, your take on stock B suddenly made a 180-degree turn. How do

news really relevant to trading?
Now, anyone can say
that technical analysis is an essential tool in trading. How about the news?
Can we say that it is equally as important? Again, the news is the driving fuel
of the forex market. Every market participant or trader needs to rely on the
