Is news trading allowed? – Peak

News trading is restricted around high-impact news events. Specifically, traders are not allowed to open or close trades five minutes before or after the release of high-impact news. High-impact news events are determined based on listings from Forex Factory, a well-regarded resource for Forex market news and events. This rule is designed to mitigate risk and prevent trading during periods of potentially extreme market volatility, which can occur during and immediately following major news announcements. This policy helps ensure that trading is conducted under conditions that are as stable and predictable as possible, aligning with Alpine Funded’s commitment to prudent risk management. Violation of this rule is a soft violation, and if profitable, the trade will be removed.
