Much advice for Forex traders suggests being flat across NFPRs. The idea is that unexpected US jobs data can take your position rapidly into the red or the volatility whipsaws can trigger stops and take you out, while the market resumes in your anticipated direction.

But most of what's published on trading relates to daytrading. Asking as a trend-following end of day swing trader, has anyone done any hard research into the risks of NFPRs for the likes of us?
