  • 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.

Wow this is amazing, thanks for doing this.

A few questions
  1. Is this also available for NT7?
  2. Where is the news information being pulled from?
  3. How is the impact being chosen? Is that derived directly from the website it is being pulled from?

Hi @SoftSoap,

Just my little way of giving back to the community that I have learned so much from, it's a big pleasure. I hope to add quite a few more for free download here.

In answer to your questions:
  • Unfortunately not. I wrote the indicator specifically for NT8.
  • The information is pulled from the forexfactory.com news feed
  • The impact comes directly from the feed at forexfactory.com

Hope this helps,
Popsicle

@Popsicle

Great work. Nice and easy on the eye.

I haven't looked at the code yet. Is there any reason why the date and time has been shifted? Is it set for your region per chance?

If you are pulling the source direct from an XML, those times are shown as EST. You could leave these times as per the XML and get the indicator to offset for the timezone (or hour shift) via a selection within the the indicator itself.

Thanks @JonnyBoy, I love writing elegant UI's that is user friendly.

I am not shifting the time in code at the moment, investigating why I am getting those times specifically. You gave me another good idea though. Seeing that the news is just for the current day, I don't need to display the date and time, just the time is enough.

I will update the indicator and release a new version ASAP as soon as I have a fix.

Version 1.0.2 available

I just released version 1.0.2 of the indicator.

In this version:

- Not displaying date as the news is for the current day only. Will refresh automatically for the next day
- Showing the time of the news item in its raw format as it comes from the source

Coming up in the next version:

- Allow the user to choose if they want the announcement time shifted to their timezone

Thanks for the suggestions @JonnyBoy.

Profitable Trading,
Popsicle

Version 1.0.3 Released


I just uploaded a new version of the indicator. It fixes a small layout bug that occurred when no news items were returned.

Thank you very much for everyone who made suggestions for the indicator, they are all on my backlog and will be developed and released incrementally.

Profitable Trading,
Popsicle
