Macroeconomic Trading

Is trading the news permitted?

Updated over a week ago

We try not to restrict our trader's style at The Forex Funder. As such, macroeconomic news trading is allowed on our accounts. However, any order placed & closed on high-impact news within 5 minutes before and 5 minutes after can result in an account suspension.

Note: You are still expected to trade with a reasonable lot size as if trading your own live account.

MetaTrader accounts use GMT +3 as their base time zone, so the high-impact news calendar should also be set to GMT +3.
