Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

News releases

Hi , I was wondering if it's possible to have news releases plotted on a price chart. I'm using Ninjatrader 7 and monitor new releases from Forex Factory.

Thanks

Hi slatter

I've never heard of it (doesn't mean it's not possible of course).

I presume by "news releases" you're talkin about scheduled data releases (e.g. CPI, NFP, PPI, etc.) and if that's the case, one thing you could do, given that they tend to come always at the same time, is to plot specific vertical lines at pre-defined intervals.

Popular US data releases come at 13:30 and 15:00 (UK time) for example, and European ones can vary but it's usually between 7 and 10 am). Also most UK ones are at 9:30 for instance.

Hope it helps.

Yes you can. On my phone so can't search for you. Try searching FIO for economic news release indicators. You will find several threads on it. I recall that @sharmas is using it. Have a look at his journal.
