Truly News Expert

The Expert Advisor informs about the releases of the upcoming news of the financial world using the data from the ForexFactory site.

It has a number of features:

  • Filtering news by the user-defined currency, currencies by the pair set on the chart, significance of the upcoming news;
  • Displays the time until the news release or time of the news itself (GMT, by the broker or local time);
  • Displays the past and upcoming news on the chart using flags and lines as soon as the EA is attached;
  • Displays the value of the prediction and the past score(volume) for each news.

It is written in the form of an Expert Advisor, and not as an indicator due to the lack of ability to download data from the Internet with the help of indicators without the use of DLL.

The news data is downloaded only for the current week - ForexFactory limitation.

Make sure to allow access to the URL: http://www.forexfactory.com in the terminal settings (Tools - Options - Expert Advisors).
