How to i filter out such fake signals? Please help

    You cannot filter out such fake signals. Trading is probability based activity - you buy and sell when you believe that there is a higher probability for the price going in your direction. It means that the price can (and sometimes will) go against you. Also, considering that the report with February 14 data was released on the trading session close of February 17, the earliest you could trade on it would have been February 20.
