Top 3 TradingView indicators for trading the NFP

NFP or Non Farm Payrolls is one of the most important economic reports that forex, commodity, and stock traders follow because it can act as an indicator for health of the US economy.

The NFP reports on the number of jobs added to the US economy in the previous month excluding those employed by farms, the federal government, non-profit organizations and private households. The NFP report is released on the first Friday of each month and can be responsible for some of the biggest movements in Forex and other assets.

Trading the NFP before it even happens can be risky because of the high volatility and possible widening spreads. It can be safer to wait 15 to 30 minutes after the release of the NFP report and pair your technical analysis with the following 3 indicators.

This gives you a wholistic view of the markets from a global perspective which can help you understand how behave in the days and hours leading up to, during, and after the NFP.

This indicator can be vital for determining a bad (unsustainable) and good (sustainable) volatility caused by an NFP release and great when you need an additional confirmation before entering a trade.
