    The news events that known to have significant movement

    Is any one here can write a list of news events that known to have a significant movement ?
    or tell me if my list is correct:

    The most important to watch for are Unemployment Reports, and
    Interest Rates.

    Also high on the list to look for are Consumer
    Price Index (CPI), Inflation, and Gross Domestic Product
    (GDP).

    Less important (meaning less likely to result in the jumps
    you are looking for) but still worth keeping an eye on include M2
    (Money Supply), Treasury Budget, Producer Price Index (PPI),
    Retail Sales, and International Trade.

    Thank you

    More info

    Unemployment Reports are released on the first Friday of every
    month at 8:30 am EST for the prior month (this is a big one you
    should always attempt to trade.
    Every Thursday at 8:30 am EST they release a weekly adjustment (less important but still a
    good possibility).

    CPIs are released 8:30 am EST around the 13th of each month for the prior month.

    PPI released around 11th of each month at 8:30 am EST
    for the prior month.

    GDP released 3rd or 4th week of the month at 8:30 am EST for the prior quarter.

    M2 released Thursdays at 16:30 EST data for the week
    ended two Mondays prior.

    NAPM (National Association of
    Purchasing Managers) released 10:00 am EST on the first
    business day of the month for the prior month.

    Retail Sales released 8:30 am EST around the 13th of the month.
    month prior.

    The ability of news events to move the markets varies over time. Check the Daily Trading Signals archive and read what Crazy Cat has written. You'll see phrases like "this one has been very hot lately" or "this one hasn't moved the market as much recently".

    Of course, a few reports are just about guaranteed to cause movement on deviation. The NFP comes to mind.
