    Where can I get realtime unemployment and inflation figures when they are released?

    When I worked for an institution I got them off the Bloomberg terminal, but now I'm independent and can't afford one.

    Are there any cheaper alternatives?

    Also, are there any cheap realtime news-streams?

    Would be great if someone can help me out withthis.

  2. nope. the best way is to work for a trading firm that has a squawk box to get goverment data. i'm sure for stock news there are cheaper ways then bloomberg but there will be alittle delay. i am in the same boat about the stock news and am curious what others will come up with.
  3. I could just imagine a realtime ticker showing the number of jobs lost in the united states in the last two seconds...interesting...
  4. lol an unemployment tape! You must be talking about early release of numbers???
