Economic Events Downloader (news)

Hi,

This tool downloads economic events from Forex Factory calendar back to 2007 and stores them in easy-to-read text files which can later be used by other software, for instance study within your trading platform.

This tool is written in Java, so is independent of your operating system (Windows, Mac, Linux, …). However, it requires that Java be installed on your computer. It is often already the case. If not, it could be freely and easily installed from java.com.

.jar files are executable files, just as .exe files. If you are reluctant to execute this file, since provided by a third party, and if you are concerned by security issues, source code is provided. So you can review it and compile it yourself.

Current version is v5.1.

Source code, executable and documentation are attached.

This tool is used by @Jura 's Economic Events Collection for MultiCharts and was already posted there.

I just wanted to also make it available in a separate thread, since it is now also used by a Sierra Chart study: Economic Events Display.

Nicolas

Nicely done.



Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Thanks @Jura
But I would probably not have done it if we were not working together on the Economic Events project. So... team work!

Thanks for the great & light program,

One problem I encountered: I live in Greece and have greek regional settings. When I tried to download data the program couldn't recognize the dates.
The problem was solved when I changed the regional settings to English (US).

@nasta ,

1. I understand that you have found a workaround by changing your regional settings.

However, I could try to modify the code so that it adapts to your settings.

2. Could you post a screenshot of the software window showing the error?

3. I would need to know how the dates are formatted when you open Forex Factory. So, could you open Forex Calendar @ Forex Factory, save the Web page as a .htm or .html file (File / Save as) and post it?

4. I would need to know which regional settings Java identifies on your computer. So, could you execute the Jar contained within the attached zip file and tell me what it shows?
On my computer, it shows "FR-fr":

        JFrame myFrame = new JFrame();
        myFrame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
        myFrame.add(new JLabel(locale.getCountry()+"-"+locale.getLanguage()));
        myFrame.pack(); 
        myFrame.setLocationRelativeTo(null);
        myFrame.setResizable(false);
        myFrame.setVisible(true);
    }

@Nicolas11
Thanks again for the program.
Below I attach screenshots and the html file. I see that the problem has something to do with the hour formats (??) and the regional settings that java identifies are US-en.
So, I don't know if I correctly described the problem in my first post, but it was solved when I changed the formats of regional settings to English-US.
