    Hi everyone

    I am a looking at sources of fundamental market data & News related to forex trading. There are many sites with news aggregation and other fundamental statistics but I could not find any historical database.

    The idea would be to use these data to measure impact of these data on price & if successful define new indicators that would be useful for trading.

    Fetching all these data, parsing it, and normalizing it is a lot a work, I'm looking for a way to get up to speed faster.

    Anyone has some interesting sources?

    Hi, I think that it's useless because every piece of data that is coming out affect the market in a different way than in the past and this is because of the sentiment that is on the market in the moment when the news is released.
    For example in 2006 news coming from the house market was not so important like now.
