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!

forker

Hi Forker

FYI you can set the addin so that you only see one line of news - it effectively takes up the space of 2 toolbar strips.

Yep, two possible explanations.

(1) Don't install any DLLs, which are not compatible with NT 7.0.1000.4 or later. Possibly you installed a version which was protected with Remotesoft Salamander. This will shoot down the latest NinjaTrader versions.

(2) The author did set some of the external variables in the Initailize section. This section is compiled, whenever you open the indicator dialogue box. As one of those external variables had a link to FOREX factory, it also has the effect of freezing NinjaTrader, as the compiling of the indicators stops.

So you have been victim of one of the above. If you tell me which version you installed, I can tell which of the two problems you suffered from.

Thanks Fat Tails.
I just ripped the whole thing out to salvage the install. shame I absolutely loved the News addin.
I read about the config file issues but feel there must be something really simple that's preventing the original one working as the form loads and runs - just no news/info.

Did you try this version?

-> It is the non-DLL version
-> I had removed the bug, which led to a freeze by setting the variable outside the Initialiaze() Section

Should work and display some news, if you set "today's news only" to false.

Econ news 2

Thanks Fat Tails.
I was really looking for a way to use the ADDIN as I find it very screen efficient and user friendly.
But I appreciate your efforts.
It seems strange that JonThom would go to such great efforts to produce the most amazing indicator and then not do minor fixes for the latest versions? Maybe he sold the rights or something.

Did you check whether he has a fix on his website?

Fix

Here.

It would appear there is an issue with dailyfx but forexfactory still works if you alter the config file as per the post.
Note you will have to open the config file with an editable application like notepad and NOT IE7.

Many thanks to Fat Tails for pushing me down this avenue :-)

Hi mindset,

Thanks for your input.

I'm kind of an idealist. I bought big monitors for a reason, and it wasn't to waste space unnecessarily. Also, I like seeing all the upcoming news items. The news is only a few strings long, yet wastes precious space all the way across the monitor. After using the indicator that printed to the chart, it's hard to go back!

this version should work:

Thanks Silvester,

I looked to remove the jtEconNews2a assembly under utilities, but it's not listed. However, it's still available as an indicator. What's up with that!

I downloaded your version, and imported it. It asked me if I wanted to overwrite the existing one. I was like, 'Hell YES!'

When I went to add the indicator, oddly enough, it reports it's version as '2a' just like the bad one I had.

I loaded it anyway, and I saw '(There are no pending news events for the rest of the day.)

YIPPY!!!! I haven't seen that for a loooooong time.

Now, it's after hours, and so I'm keeping my fingers crossed, but I am very encouraged. I'll check it out on the Sunday opening. If it works, I'm gonna owe you
