My news trading strategy is simple.

I walk away from my computer half an hour before and walk back half an hour later.

:)

Welcome to the club ! Except I will not trade 1hr before the news. As I am trading from the 4hr, the candle usually closes minimum 30 min after the news, when all the dust has settled down and you know whether it moved sommething or not

but if someone really want to trade the news, the best way is to wait for a pull back, then a signal in the direction of the first move.

Now I am sharing my NFP news strategy! I set 2 pending orders before 2 minutes (of NFP) with 20 pips Stop loss, most of the time market moves in one site and I get my TP.
