I need inexpensive solution that will allow me to capture the mood of what is going on on the market. I am not trading the news, but I want to know fast what just had happened on the market so all charts became crazy at the moment.
I have IB, I am subscribed to Reauters feed in IB. Questions are :
1. Can I orginise ( or somebody already did this ) a window that shows news in a timely manner.
2. Is it possible to get news events from IB TWS API ?
I know that iqFeed has this but it is a bit expensive considering that I don't need fast news, I just need those in reasonable time limits.
I watch MarketWatch but this is inconvinient and they are too slow with news updates.
What do you guys use ?
Any developments in this area? May be indicators for NinjaTrader ?
Ideally, I need Bloomberg terminal but not that sofisticated
P.S. I am a programmer, so feel free and shoot technicals ...

Need help? 1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods.

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?
