news announcements...

I've been paper trading the e-minis and as a trading rule I want to be out of the market during news announcements that will create short-term volatility. The only problem is I have no idea how to know when these announcements are coming. There must be a source on-line for these but my googling powers are failing me. Can someone point me in the right direction?

I use Forex Factory to be aware of coming events and Forex @ DailyFX - Real Time Forex News for unexpected news. The dailyfx, in fact, is better to follow in twitter, you can see more info there.

What I use while trading is this application (in stand-alone mode):
blog@JohnThom.com: Run the EconNewsReader as a Stand-Alone Application
There is a NT add-on but I don't like to mix it with my NT system.

By the other hand, you'll see that news are marked with priority: HIGH / MID / LOW... But only experience will tell you when to be really aware for increasing volatility and when not.

Hope it helps.

I forgot to mention: ThinkOrSwim also has a chatroom called "Global News", in this room you can listen "RansQuawk" (I think is delayed for few seconds) but when something unexpected happens, you saw it happen in the market and then you listen/watch the news.

old news ......

Just going to drag up this thread to ask whether anyone knows of a news archive?

I'm backtesting my strategy on last year's data and I often see spikes which look like news-related moves but aren't on the scheduled announcements calendar.

For instance, 2010-11-19 10:30GMT+0 there is a spike down. There's no reason for it except news.

I looked at the subforum here for news and announcements, where I could scroll back to that date and see what news was released, but there was no answer there either.

I like the idea of searching through an archive by date/time, but does often with newsfeeds like Reuters, there's too much news and I can't be sure that they output the story relating to the spike at anything like the same time.

Anyone have any good ideas?

I checked out forex factory, but like I said, they only archive scheduled announcements so there's a big hole where all the unscheduled market-moving news should be, assuming you want to see an archive of all news.
