Indianapolis, In ADM  16:55:55 GMT - 10/16/2012  
Let's say a pair, on which I am bullish, is trading in a narrow range, pending an important announcement.

I might decide to place a buy stop slightly above the trading range, but with a stop loss immediately below it. If there is so much as a down tick, I'm outa here.

The problem is, I am concerned that my stop loss might be triggered by the spread, rather than by a down tick. What is the best way to get as close as possible, while preventing something like that from happening?

That is a risk as spreads often widen just beofrre a news release as liquidity thins and banks widen or pull their prices.

You will soon find out there is no free lunch in this business., Even with economic releases - the reactions used to be pretty predictable based on how close or far from the consensus but in this risk on/risk off world, the reactions are harder to predict.
