    Why suffer from significant losses? The cTrader News Release Manager provides signals to pause your robots (x) minutes before, during and after a news release. If you automate your trading using technical indicators then you need this.


    Why do you need to use a Forex News Manager Robot?

    One of the greatest features of the foreign exchange market is that it is open 24 hours a day. This allows investors from around the world to trade during normal business hours, after work or even in the middle of the night. However, not all times are created equal. Although there is always a market for these most liquid asset classes, there are times when price action is consistently volatile and periods when it is muted. 


    If your automated strategy is based on technical indicators then you are gambling during major news releases.

    Here is an example on a 15-minute chart, if the technical indicators had signalled long it would have blown my stops, but luckily I had sell signals, but this also would have caused me problems as my robots would still be signalling a sell and opened a new short position at the bottom of the spike.

    By avoiding a major news release you bypass all the price spikes.

    Pause All Symbols

    If this is set to true, it will set a signal to pause all your currency pairs instances that you have running on your cBot, if it is set to false, it will set a signal to only pause the currency pairs in the list you provide that relate to the news even that is about to happen. An example would be that you have EUR, GBP, and CHF in the "Currency List to Manage" and a news event happens that is only EUR related then only your currency pair symbols with EUR will be managed.


    You can pause all robot instances before a news release or just those that the news release is related to, so a United States news release will affect all currency pairs with USD or Indices that are in the US, to make sure the news files have loaded correctly, just run the robot and in the log file, you will see the following.
