  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

@Blash,

I have been listening to the the financialjuice news squawk for a week, and there has been an obvious delay of at least 10 seconds. e.g. at 9am on my ( accurate) clock, with a new bar already printing, the guy says " OK, 10 seconds til the close of the hour ". His FOMC report was way late also.

Have you noticed this ?



It's not caused by any lag on my end. And their text news alert is actually very speedy.

I listened to their tickstrike also, which I like, but I am presuming it is also delayed (but this is more difficult to quantify).

I can only guess that the audio news delay is deliberate on their part.

Perhaps they plan to charge for a non-delayed version ?



I have actually noticed this too. Glad it's not just me.

Not sure what I should do now...lol.

The latest version of my PriceSquawk (a competitor to tickstrike), I use the standalone for IQFeed, now has the ability to enter all the news events for the coming week say on the weekend and create a custom alert sound for them but that's it. It would just be a reminder to look and a news feed.

I recently looks at Bloomberg Terminal for market news but it's not economically feasible for me to allocate $2000/mo for news. I have no other reason for that platform. Great tool though. Better for stock traders I feel.

I'm happy with Investing.com's economic calendar. So I might just enter the times for news events I deem important into PriceSquawk for the week a minute early from the actual event and then look at their site for that news item.

Ron and @Stillgreen, have you considered Talking Forex? I don't experience any time delay with them and for 20 GBP/month (about 25 USD) I think they are good value for money.

There's a trial I think at about 1 GBP.

This feels like a winner to me. Thanks a ton @xplorer! I will take a hard look once I finish my current projects around the house.

No problem Ron. You can check their service out for free here when you have time


This specific one is free and the only difference with the paid one is that the audio of this one is delayed by 5 minutes.


But it gives you an idea of the look and feel.

Futures Edge on FIO

What value do you place on the webinars on FIO?

 
@Blash and @xplorer, I just got a reply from financialjuice to my query about the delay. They confirm that the news squawk is delayed, " but as we further develop the technology it will be real time."
They say the Tickstrike for ES is real time which is good to know.
Also, @Blash , since you have Pricesquawk, could you compare it's audio signals for ES to the free version of Tickstrike on the site, and see if they are similar ?

So sorry I missed this post!

Price Squawk IMHO is complete genius. Extremely customizable limited only by ones imagination. It's not a separate data feed like I believe TickStrike is. I have both the Ninja version and the standalone for IQFEED.

I once listened to TickStrike for a brief moment and was unimpressed after knowing what PriceSquawk can do. With PriceSquawk you can choose from a vast selection of sounds (or create your own) and many well thought out ways to configure them related to volume etc. All relatively easy to set up. The "auto" feature is super.

Let me know if you are still interested and I can supply more info.

Again sorry for my gross tardiness.

Ron

The leap into freedom is the exchanging of risk for reward. This can be done only by shifting from tension to ease, and that can be done only when one perceives the reward and not the risk. That you won't win all the time has nothing to do with it - that's life, that's the [stock] market. The trying itself is freeing. And being free has its own reward - Justin Mamis, The Nature of Risk
