How to Trade During the US Presidential Election?

Unless you've been hiding under a rock for the past year, you've probably heard, read, or participated in some heated discussions about the US presidential race. Although 2020 is totally unpredictable, the next American president's election on November 3 must be the most anticipated autumn event.

How will the election influence the market?

People may argue up and down about policy, personality, and party, but from the experience of the last election, we can predict what may happen this time. All the American markets tend to experience increased volatility in the running up to a presidential election, including USD forex pairs, indices, and commodities.

Tips for trading during the US election

Before entering the market on November 3, we want to give you some helpful tips:

  • Be ready for a very, very active market. Choose your trade sizes wisely, as well as your risk management policy, i.e., your approach to Stop Losses and Take Profits.
  • The USD will make many moves during the hours when they count votes in the United States. Make sure you have a good news source to follow the updates, for example, FBS YouTube or Facebook stream.
  • Check weekly and daily timeframes in advance and mark the important technical levels – you will need them when you trade on the H1 and M30 timeframes during Election Day.
  • The general idea is that Biden's victory is negative for the USD, while Trump's victory is positive. Still, the market will be crowded, and traders' initial reactions may differ, so prepare for the price changing direction many times.
