Personalised news feeds. Would they help to deal with information overload?

Hello everyone!

I am doing a school project about personalisation of news and wondered, if you could help me. The project is for the web interaction course and is focused on traders' experience and their opinion of personalised newsfeed. I have traded the news for a little bit myself, therefore I thought about such study topic

Personally, I found trading the news quite stressful and not very successful. The mass of available information was rather overwhelming, which is why I thought about possibility to personalise the news. Maybe someone can relate with such situation or share their opinion about news personalisation?

Thank you advance 🙏 I will very appreciate all your comments!

Have you seen this? Traders made millions on stocks after hacking press releases - Aug. 11, 2015

That is how to trade the news stress free, but they got caught.. or at least that hack was caught anyway.

Its hard to see how an (automated?) personalised news feed could work as source selection is a bit ...tricky...

What is important for news varies between types of markets. Futures, just get out 5 mins before and back in after as a novice trader (otherwise your gambling, not trading). Perhaps you could expand on how you might see it working as opposed to just finding the news feeds you think are more reliable from experience over time (or copying a mentor's twitter feeds etc)?

My opinion....

You don't need a news feed every day.

But at times, such as recently with the Turkey/Russia problem, then we are at greater risk from a news event. At those times, I think it pays to listen to a news feed.

If you have any questions about the products or services provided, please send me a Private Message or use the futures.io "Ask Me Anything" thread

The story is a bit different i think.

Normally news release are distributed to the press before the actual announced.
This is under 'embargo', means the journalist can only use the news to prepare
his article, not to communicate or trade on the news...

What this hackers have done, is get access to that news, before it is actually
released in the market, then have then used it as an edge to make profit and
got caught..
