Dont Miss Out On News Trading Event - Trade 24/7 With A Reliable VPS makers of the renowed Quantina News Trader Ultimate EA came out with an interesting news trading expert advisor which caught our attention due to its unique features. The Quantina After News Trader EA 2016 which ranks 3rd on our list performs exactly what the name stands for

How It Works
After news release and impact, the EA will wait until the end of the timeframe before it enters the market. The EA observes the candle of a scheduled news event and open trades in the same and/or opposite trend direction beginning of the very next candle. Depending on the size of impact and direction, it will track and secure your executed order with BreakEven method and Trailing Stop as usual in Quantina Expert Advisors.

Next Candle for after forex news trading
News event at 15:00 server time
Observed candle was a Bearish candle; in that case, the EA opened a Sell (short) trade at the next candle at 16:00. (TimeFrame is H1). Then closed the trade using Break Even and Trailing Stop method with some profit

The EA utilizes a revolutionary trading strategy during news event time, trading just a few minutes after the news data is released, as it opens trades 1 Minute to 1 Hour later after the economic news data is released. This protects your trades from high spread or huge slippage and also latency issues.

One observable action that occurs in most news release is price/market reversion. This is very common and this is where the EA takes advantage by getting into the market at such times. A combination of the Quantina News Trader Ultimate EA & the After News Trader EA gives you a better chance at both sides of the event.
