I'm indeed thinking of using the alert status 'High' and the time of news release to trigger a 'return' routine something like:

if(JtEconNewsAddIn(5 minutes before news 'High', 5 minutes after news 'High') return;

I thought I have read something on John's blog that this is possible. I don't know if it needs those special measures you are talking about. Maybe John can help us out.

Using news in a strategy

I'm going to put out an update soon that will expose a dataseries that can be used in a strategy. The data series will contain a value indicating the importance level of the next pending news event. It will start setting this value n minutes before and after the event depending on what you set for the warning periods.

So you could do something a simple as....


if (jtEconNewsAddIn().NewsSeries[0] == 3) return;

or have the strategy close any open positions, etc.


Where 3 represents a "high importance" event.

Let me know if you have any other suggestions.

Updated for strategies

I have uploaded the update that will support interrogating news events from within strategies. You can find it here.

I decided to go with a slightly different approach as it provides more functionality and flexibility.

Please let me know what you think.

Thanks.

j0hnth0m,

Thanks so very much for this resource to use with our strategies! I am guessing I can use it during backtesting as well?

I thought there was a way to read from a file with your indicator ... I will have to look at that code again.

EcOnews failure

jOnthOm has kindly provided a fix for the forexfactory url which stopped working this month. This was causing major NT crashes, etc.

Here.

Does jtEconNews2a Even Work?

Guys,

Anyone having problems with this indicator on NT 7.0.1000.5?
After loading it, NT is working very slowly, becoming 'unresponsive' (and even reporting as much) for many seconds.
WORST OF ALL: it reports no news events, but returns the following error message:

News load error: The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found.

The last time I successfully used this indicator was on 6.5, way last year. I hate trading without it.

I will not use the 'add in' version. There is no way I'm going to give up 15% of my screen real estate!

Any suggestions?

Thanks!
