Not trying to deter from this thread again I'm sorry to the OP. But ill post before and after photos if I decide to participate in nfp Which I don't like too.
nfp these days is pretty much a non event, yet people still waffle on about it as if everything hinged on it.

It usually pans out like this. A lurch to run stops on one side, a reverse lurch to run stops the other side, then a return back to where it was prior to news release.

Employment data is the biggest market moving data in the USA because it's vital to the economic health. To say that professionals don't trade it shows how little you actually know about fundamentals and how professionals operate.

That's because the fed are not focused on employment data and this has been the case for a while because it's been on the right track. Their focus is inflation and wage growth. This doesn't mean it's not important because a really bad number could signify underlying issues and change rate expectations. Conversely, a massive number could signify acceleration and increase rate expectations. Even though the fed are not concerned about employment at this time, it's still a very tradable event.

Kinda just going to give a blanket statement. I don't really care of the outcome of the data. I care about how they set up the Market before the event.

Whether it's because 'insiders' are leaked information/data long before the public, OR, the 'smart' money has a much better understanding of general conditions, the end result is the same, so I agree with your view completely. I pay very little attention to 'NEWS' and rely only on what the tape is telling me.

That is a different market where different techniques such as tape reading can achieve results. Outside of futures, FX has no tape to read. If you trade fx, do you use a strategy that doesn't consider news and has a consistent result over several years?

Many bloggers/chatters repeat this without appreciating the details, imo.

Each individual entity prices in what they believe to be the odds of a certain outcome...whether they realize that this is actually what they are doing, or not.

Each individual entity does not necessarily have to prescribe to the forecast put forth by the talking heads on television.

One entity may price in one rate at a 60% likelihood; another may price in a different rate at a 90% likelihood.

Once the actual rate is known, all these individual entities may adjust their positions/orders accordingly.

The resultant price action is a reflection of these many different possibilities.
