    After opening up this site, click on the news item. The news item is graded according to importance and how much they can potentially move the market. Although it is by no means a definitive guide it can be helpful. The relevance of the news also can change as the Economy changes and certain news events are perceived to be more important than others. For example, currently, any Employment news is deemed highly important, but may not have been considered so 3 years ago.

    .... The ability of news to affect any market requires a very difficult analysis which needs to be based on complete information - this requirement is very hard to meet. Assuming that you have complete or nearly complete information - which can also work but requires detailed model testing to validate - you can thus construct a statistical model of the influence of various pieces of information.

    This is very difficult to do and requires much validation testing.

    Unless somebody posts all of the details and has years of validation testing results to publish, I would not rely on any service or person claiming reliable predictions of "market moving" news......
