Hello everyone!
Personally, I found trading the news quite stressful and not very successful. The mass of available information was rather overwhelming, which is why I thought about possibility to personalise the news. !

Have you seen this? Traders made millions on stocks after hacking press releases - Aug. 11, 2015

That is how to trade the news stress free, but they got caught.. or at least that hack was caught anyway.

Its hard to see how an (automated?) personalised news feed could work as source selection is a bit ...tricky...

What is important for news varies between types of markets. Futures, just get out 5 mins before and back in after as a novice trader (otherwise your gambling, not trading). Perhaps you could expand on how you might see it working as opposed to just finding the news feeds you think are more reliable from experience over time (or copying a mentor's twitter feeds etc)?
