Jan 11, , 7: Jan 11, , 8: Straddling' in forex is a quick way to lose money, off news even faster. One is out instantly twice the spread just to catch one position. There are so many factors to think about even before attempting this.
Triggering losses before news has even been released. That is a best case senerio. One that would be if spreads did widen before news released. This is still not factoring in time or type of news one is trading off of. If one takes random trades different news releases you can expect random trades.

I don't know what "and more" means but the free ea I posted does everything you've listed. I'm a firm believer in keeping all my cash for actually trading. I've made more than I've lost with the free ea, it's a lovely piece of work and just glad there are those traders out there who actually help other traders.
That said, the news trading business is getting more difficult with MT4 retail brokers and see the day when it's damned near impossible.
