This sounds good Mike, though sites like forexfactory and bloomberg, etc., have consensus, prior readings, revisions, and pretty quick posting of the numbers, so my guess is that anyone who cares about the numbers and does not simply want a reference to the time will probably use those other sites. In other words, you might not want to pour a ton of work into it until you make sure that others will actually use it. To be honest, unless it had the same features and did a better job than forexfactory, which is quite sufficient, then I probably would not personally use it.

As far as the actual news items, financial traders may want to see the government debt auction times, especially for the 10 yr and the like. And, having a reminder of what's coming up in China and the eurozone might appeal to some (like the Chinese manufacturing and GDP numbers which are always market moving in the US overnight session, and like Italian and Greece bond auctions). Basically, what FF has is good, except they for some reason do not have the Dallas Fed number which I like to see. I'm not sure many folks would care about the agricultural news events, though maybe there are more ag traders here than I'm aware of.

As always, thanks for the amount of work you put into the site. You keep things constantly moving and shaking, and it's much different from most other sites that function exactly the same (and as poorly) as they did 5 years ago.

Thanks. It's more a reminder of important news events from a time standpoint, not meant to care about the result of the news. I don't trade news so I guess that's the way I think and approach it, I don't care about the results, I just want to know if a report is coming.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
