That's one good reason why most of them lose. And good technical day trader would not have positions open before NFP, or at least would have scaled back a good portion of open positions. That kind of trading is just gambling. There is no skill involved.
He's doing well otherwise so I'm not condemning him. If I were a potential follower though I'd be concerned at these past 2 days. His draw down over the past 2 days, high to low has been near 40%.
40% of what he made in 6 weeks. If it it was a year it would be a lot. It looks like he needs to be a little more concerned with fundamentals, I agree.
I know a lot of professional traders that trade NFP. They say it's just another day.
