Halifax provides trading opportunities around Economic News events.

The NETS tool assesses the difference between the actual news result and the general market expectation to identify short term trading opportunities typically last from 2-48 hours.

NETS does this by using statistically relevant consensus data for each event and currency pair, this data is drawn from between 30 and 40 leading economists globally depending on the event.

The NETS tool is a simple-to-read visual report that displays the impact that economic events have had on the Forex markets.

This tool is designed to give you, as a trader a concise visual account of the actual impact previous economic events have had on particular currency pairs.

NETS is simple and easy to understand, instead of having an entire events calendar Halifax searches a regular event calendar for events that have tradeable opportunities based on the statistical analysis.

The NETS tool will add value to your trading arsenal by equipping you with insight into the News Events. This will allow you to trade with additional information around economic events.

Registered Users of NETS will receive an email before the economic news event with a follow up after the event on ~3-5 relevant events per week.

For example:

87.5% probability that USDCHF will trend down on Wednesday 01 Mar at 08:55 AM GMT if the DE Unemployment Change number is less than -10K.

This Wednesday 01 Mar at 08:55 AM GMT the latest DE Unemployment Change number will be released.

If the number is less than economists' consensus there is an 87.5% probability that USDCHF will trend down for 4 hours following the news event.

This probability is based on the last 12 DE Unemployment Change events, in which 7 of the last 8 events where the actual number was less than the economist consensus resulted in a down trend of USDCHF.

Halifax also provides SMS notifications at the time of a news release once a trading opportunity has been identified based upon the economic news release.
