GBP Consumer Price Index (CPI) Forex Trading Strategies

    What are the best forex strategies to trade the GBP Consumer Price Index (CPI) economic news trading release?

    From my experience, just wait 5-10 min after the UK CPI release before even looking for possible trades.


    Spreads could easily widen up to 20 pips or more on the GBP currency pairs right before and after the CPI report.

    As a result, you will be already 20 pips in the red or even worse, your stop-loss is hit before the market has even started moving! It’s not worth the risk.

    How to trade this report

    Just wait 5-10 to digest the news and make sure to wait for the spread to return back to the normal 2-4 pips levels.
