Ok.. So is there a way to get a rough idea of what the release will be "before" the release.

For example.. Monday is announcing CAD building permits- which is actually for month of April. Which I looked and seen what I could find

Question is , The big bankers and powerhouses already know the "news" before we do. Well don't or can't we access much of the info prior to the release and have an idea if it's going to be above forecast or below forecast.

If only I had a cousin that worked at the Federal Reserve or an inside connect with the unemployment stats office. lol..... But we do have the next best thing "Google" .....
