conflicting releases



  • Two or more news items that would tend to have opposite affects on the value of a stock, bond, currency, or other financial instrument. The favorable and unfavorable information is contradictory and each news story must be weighed for credibility by all participants in the market. Volatility is often high in these situations since investors are uncertain of the facts. Conflicting economic information can have a variety of effects on the Forex market, especially when the news impacts one country differently than another.
