    This product offers the customer complete peace of mind during news events, it is well known that just before, during and after a major news release the markets can become very unpredictable and volatile. All automated trading systems which use technical indicators are instead gambling when this happens, even manually trading using indicators is extremely risky. These are because fundamental news can completely take all the traders by surprise and shake the markets, an extreme example would be the coronavirus, Brexit, or an unexpected world event, but regular events can be the unemployment figures released that are unexpected.

    Automated Trading System API

    This news calendar will talk to your cTrader cBots and send signals just before major news events so the robot will stop opening new positions and close any risky positions, it will send another signal after the event has finished and it is safe to start trading again.


    Trade Manager

    The trade manager tab allows automatic management of open trades before a news event happens, it is well known that if trades are left open they can easily be stopped out or even an account being blown if not managed correctly. This feature will only close trades that relate to the upcoming news event and not all currency symbols that are open.
