News feed bloomberg like

Hi Guys,

I want to ask you about news feeds.

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 ...

I guess you haven't seen this:

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.

Wow, thanks mate !
That is probably what I need.

Quick question ( before I take a deep look ) does it display news as well ? not only Calendar.

And, how good is this ForexFactory news "feed", are they fast enough ?

Have a look at this post of mine which references where the indi is that displays on the chart panel.

I am using it every day - have been since I made the original post and have had no issues.

Good Choice?

Hi Traders,

I am searching for a good and free solution to obtain push news.
Its not my favour to add a news indicator on the chart cause of space.

Someone knows a good source for a free standalone app with push integrated news releases?

I did searched the web but found only pay apps or apps like jtEconNewsReader which aren´t suited my preference.

I don't need fast news, I just need those in reasonable time limits.

If a 5 minute delay is reasonable, try Zerohedge breaking news - First for FX News which is free. Otherwise, you can pay 20 GBP per month, which is the cheapest available for a retail news feed, and get real time news.
