News file is downloaded in to experts\files directory. File contains news in following format:

Date,Time,Time Zone,Currency,Description,Importance,Actual,Forecast,Previous

The news provider has already rated the news so all you have to do is change trade_x_news inputs to suit.

e.g if you only want news with high importance in the file set trade_high_news to true and all the others to false.

Hey born2trade,

For me it is working fine. Remember all it is doing is trying to catch the sudden movements that are generated by news events. So the key is the take profit..

it is more likely to get hit if you take 5 pips instead of 20. Play about with it on DEMO.. change the inputs.

I have tried this for a week now and there is no action. The active/files directory is also empty. opening http://www.dailyfx.com/files/ manually brings error.

Is there anything that I have done wrongly, please explain how you got yours working.
