This article will show any trader how to track these volatile GBP (British Pound) pairs and we will also show you a great indicator set for trading these pairs.
Locating GBP News Drivers
Forex traders should become familiar with the world economic news calendar. The calendar can be customized to show GBP news events or news events for any other currency they like. Some examples of scheduled GBP news announcements that create volatility in the GBP pairs are: Consumer Price Index, Core Consumer Price Index, Bank Of England Interest Rate Decisions, BOE Asset Purchase Target, Manufacturing PMI, and many others. These economic news drivers are scheduled and traders can watch the market after these news announcements for trading opportunities to buy or sell the GBP pairs.
If you need a world economic news calendar to track GBP news events we have one on our website. These handy calendars will also provide you with scheduled news drivers for other important and most actively traded currencies. Now that you know how to look for scheduled GBP news, and what time these economic news announcements will be. The next thing you need to do is determine how to enter trades on the GBP pairs when they move up or down after the news.
GBP Pairs And Volatility
We trade 28 pairs at Forexearlywarning, and 7 out of the 28 pairs are GBP pairs. These pairs are all quite volatile. The EUR/GBP is the low volatility pair in the group, and the GBP/NZD is hyper volatile. If all 7 GBP pairs moved 1% in one day, the total movement on all 7 GBP pairs would be around 1000 pips on the day this article was written, and it used to be much higher before the Brexit vote. Some forex traders almost cannot believe it, but this type of volatility makes the GBP pairs group the most volatile group of most commonly traded pairs. The opportunity is here to make a lot of pips and the volatility makes it possible.
Example GBP News Trade and Signal System
On April 4, 2016, the GBP (British Pound) had a scheduled news driver on the economic calendar, it was the GBP Manufacturing PMI news announcement. The net result for traders was that the GBP weakness dominated most of the market movement after the news announcement. The GBP was weak on all pairs on this day and pairs like the GBP/JPY, GBP/CHF and GBP/AUD all sold off hard. The trading signal you see below is from The Forex Heatmap®, which provides live buy and sell signals for the GBP pairs and 7 other currencies. It provides live trading signals during forex market hours and after all forex news drivers across 28 pairs. As you can see the GBP was weak on this day after the GBP news announcements and this drove strong price movement.
Also, an example chart of the GBP/CHF sell off is also shown, you can see this pair alone sold off 175 pips. The GBP pairs as a whole moved much more than 1000 pips in one trading session on this day.
If you combine the trend, GBP news economic drivers, and The Forex Heatmap®, you can start to build a powerful trading system. On this day the GBP/JPY was in a long term downtrend and it also dropped on the GBP weakness. We estimated on his day that the GBP/JPY should continue down to at least the 158.50 support level on the H4 time frame, or possibly much lower. The GBP/AUD broke out to the downside and this pair resumed the downtrend on the W1 time frame, withthe next major support is at 1.8350, so additional pip potential is available on the GBP pairs. The live heatmap signals will give you a profitable trade entry, but if you are trading with the major trends and breakouts you can start riding the trends lower on these pairs and add to your pip totals.
More Volatility and Strong Price Movement
The GBP pairs are naturally more volatile, but less volatile pairs can become much more volatile after scheduled news divers, or other unexpected worldwide news events. Pairs that are less volatile become much more volatile after news events, as logn as one currency is consistently strong and the other currency in the pair is consistently weak. We track 8 currencies including the GBP pairs with our indicators. Following all 28 pairs and 8 currencies is fairly easy, and when combined with our alert systems and the economic calendar, you will always be in the know when currencies are moving.
Today in the forex market we had a sell alert on the GBP/JPY from The Forex Heatmap®. The Japanese Yen (JPY) was strong on all pairs in the group and all of these pairs dropped. There was also some GBP weakness in the market, so this pushed the GBP/JPY strongly lower. The long term trend on this pair is down, but is still has some near term support levels down to the 160.25 support area before fully breaking out. For this reason traders should scale out some lots on any profitable trade entries, while setting stops to break even. The alert system you see below is The Forex Heatmap®, which provides live visual trading alerts for 28 pairs and eight different currency groups.
In this article we will present a currency strength strategy for forex trade entries and another strategy for market analysis, both strategies work. These two strategies will improve any trader’s understanding of the current market condition, along with more much more profitable trade entries, trade after trade.
Currency Strength Strategy For Current Market Momentum
Measuring the current market momentum in real time is one currency strength strategy. In the example below the USD (US Dollar) was weak on all pairs. This drove significant movement for traders on this day (2-3-2016) on all seven of the USD pairs we follow at Forexearlywarning.com. There was also some minor NZD (New Zealand Dollar) and CAD (Canadian Dollar) strength in the market. So the NZD/USD moved strong to the upside, makes perfect sense. Since the NZD/USD was also in an uptrend at this time, it should continue higher on the D1 time frame to the 0.6800 resistance area.
Also, the USD/CAD dropped and is currently at one support level, so in this case a trader may choose to scale out lots and reduce position size. The EUR/USD also moved up strong on this day and broke out of it’s trading range, now this pair has additional upside on the D1 time frame as well. So you can also plan more trade entries going forward on the pairs that are trending. A phenomenal and profitable day of trading for any forex trader on only one group of pairs, with strong movements. The real time currency strength indicator you see below is The Forex Heatmap®, which provides live buy and sell signals for 28 pairs, including the US Dollar pairs and seven other currencies
Another Example of Intraday Currency Strength
This is another example of how to use intra day currency strength for strong trade entries. This example is from 7-5-2016. On this day the British Pound (GBP) was weak on all pairs, and the Japanese Yen (JPY) was strong on all pairs. This caused a strong sell off on the GBP/JPY. This pair sold off over 300 pips in one trading session, also, the major trend on this pair is down on the larger time frames, so more pips are possible despite this strong trade entry.
Strong signals like this happen routinely on the forex in the 8 currencies we track at Forexearlywarning.com, but since so many traders use technical indicators they always miss the pips. Using easy to interpret visual tools like The Forex Heatmap®, which monitor the strength of the currencies and money flows in real time, you can trade like a pro.

For example if all of the JPY pairs are in up trends, then you know the JPY is weak. Then, if you can find a strong currency to go with it, you are in business to make pips. On the Forexearlywarning website, we show you how to set up the trend indicators, and how to analyze the market by individual currency.
