Good (free) News Feed --any recomendations?

Hi Everyone!

OK, this seems to be a poorly answered question here.

Where do I get a good reliable real-time news feed? No, it doesn't come with the quotes from my broker.

I.E.... Which feed broke the latest Japan earthquake first, timely or sucked? I'm not interested in company-specific news. Only stuff like economic numbers, natural disasters, etc.

Believe me,, i know that most of you are waaaay too sophisticated to pay attention to news --- (so save me your lectures) -- but if anyone can give me a heads-up on a good, timely, free (or cheap) news feed --I'd like to incorporate it into my silly amateurish hopeless strategy.

Peace,
Paige

I can't really give you comparisons for the Japan earthquake, but I generally like the Marketwatch news viewer page. It gives me about the right mix of news and seems to be pretty timely. I also have Reuters news feeds through IB. Lately, I've been following Twitter more as well, though some of the news services seem to delay their tweets. I'm still experimenting with what to follow.

For economic events, I try to know when they are coming and get the numbers at forex factory calendar or TV.

I followed Marketwatch today at 10:00am for the *Wholesale Inventories* number. Nothing was posted on news reader until 7 minutes after release! Obviously quite useless.

I've tried Forex factory and their little icon on their calender page just spins and spins for way too long following a release to react.

When I had a stock account at Etrade - their "Marketrader" platform scrolled economic numbers the second they were released.

Is FlyontheWall worth the money? Anyone have any experience with them?

Peace,
Paige

Desktop Ticker

Desktop Ticker

Although not a news source in itself, this is a ticker that allows to scroll news items across your desktop in a banner fashion like CNBC.

I use it and you can have it 'always on top'. You can have it vertical or horrizontal anywhere on your desktop. You can contol the speed of the scroll. You can adjust the opacity so that it blends with your charts.

You can make it quite small and I believe you can have more than one instance of it - so two banners.

Just feed it with your favourite RSS feeds. The trick is finding RSS feeds that are realtime, most like CNBC, Reuters etc do not seem to be. Although non commercial ones like the BBC are probably more real time. You could feed it with MarketWatch news viewer's RSS feed which an earlier poster referred to.

I am experimenting with RANsquawk, still on a trial. They seem to be OK. I have tried NewsStrike, they are fee but no comparison to the paid RANsquawk. NewsStrike's speaker has a very strong Indian accent and the sound is really bad. It maybe just the location that I am. You decide!

Just an update of my observations.
Ransquawk vs FCMS( First Call Market Squawk)

Ransquawk are faster in the morning with the commentary on relevant news. FCMS give unessential for me info on what the Dax is trading at the moment, how wide the spread is in ... or what price is EUR/USD. Personally, I would prefer just the relevant market moving headlines. If you are a trader you are supposed to know where the DAX is and if the spread is widening or else.

Afternoon performance of RANSquawk was way off the pace, despite the unnecessary comments of FCMS they were consistently faster in the afternoon.

RTTnews desktop app is really not helping if you trade the news or looking to protect yourself if positioned the wrong way. It is more like long term trader information service.

Just my opinion.
