advice on best news service (add-on for eSignal)? (for index-futs traders)

Discussion in 'Educational Resources' started by adamcholeva, Oct 25, 2005.

  1. Reason I'm posting in this forum is I'm exclusively trading index-futures, mainly dax, cac, es and nq.

    We're relocating, and won't have access to the Reuters terminals that I relied on before for news-feed. As my trading is intra-day based, I'm looking for a service that will provide breaking stories of the kind that occasionally cues the mkt. - be it reports, geopolitical news etc. but filtered to some degree with a focus on equity trading like I could get with reuters (i.e. not tons of wheather info, or latest stats. on disease) but the potential market moving news. When I say filtered I also mean not too much info-overload, i.e. not the fast scrolling of dj news wire.

    As I'm mainly using esignal as my main quote and charting platform, I'd prefer an eSginal add-on.

    You can get the main Reuters scrolling news and securities news from ,a Reuters company, from $65 a month.

    Edited to say sorry just read the last sentence in your post - forget DJ then!
  4. thanks for input anyhow, just wondering if any active es/nq traders have a good advice on an esignal add-on news feed that would cover the stuff I mentioned in my initial post
