If the actual news release number comes out much better or worse than the forecasted number , this is when it is considered a surprise ; and it will tend to move all of the currency pairs that are related to that currency’s news . For example , if the US Non- Farm Payroll comes out better or worse than forecast , it will usually move all of the USD crosses on average 50~100 pips . For example , EURUSD, GBPUSD, USDJPY, AUDUSD, USDCHF. News Trading And Where To Get Your Forex Calendar News Trading And Where To Get Your Forex Calendar (Courtesy of
