  1. What are the best news services,within reason? I would like to have a Bloomberg, obviously. But, is there a more affordable service?

    Erik Kolodny, from The Modern Stock Operator, suggested Acquire Media, but that is almost $400

    You didn't mention what kind of news you are looking for (equity press releases, editorial, economic, foreign currency, agricultural, etc). "Best" is going to mean different things to different people and price sounds like it is part of the criteria you are looking at as well.

    With a basic IQFeed subscription ($60 per month) we include full feeds from PR Newswire (press releases), Business Wire (press releases), (press releases, big stories, economic, analysts updates, technical alerts, etc). In all, you will see several thousand stories per day. We also have premium options to add, Midnight Trader, Dow Jones, Reuters, flyonthewall, and others. Each premium wire is priced between $20-$100 per month.
  4. Sounds good. Do you have a link for a free trial?
