“‘The News can really Move the Futures Market”
FOMC tomorrow around 14:15 EST
FOMC days have different characteristics than other trading days. If you have traded for a while, check your trading notes from past FOMC days that may help you prepare for tomorrow. If you are a newcomer, take a more conservative approach and make sure you understand that the news can really move the futures market.
My observations suggest choppy, low volume up until announcement, followed by some some sharp volatile moves right during and after the announcement.
