It depends from trader to trader. Iam a day trader and for me economic indicators plays an important role.
Most of the time I have noticed that day traders are not at all aware that on which particular date or day economic data is going to get released, as a result they take trades in markets and stocks and, when data comes they make huge losses because of the volatility which they face in the markets and stocks because of the economic data.
I can understand not everyone have a liking for economic indicators and data because of the complexity involved in it, however with my personal experience I suggest that at least as a day trader one should be aware on which date or day economic data is going to come, this will help you from taking random trades. Besides, this as a day trader if you understand the impact of the economic indicators and their impact on markets and stocks then you can build your intraday strategy on stock and market in a proper manner and can avoid unnecessary losses.
