Description

It would be great if you can incorporate a data feed with economic news for backtesting as well as autotrading purposes.
It should contain the following information:

  • date/time of the release
  • which currency is affected by it / which country is it from
  • what is generally the impact of this news
  • what is expected by economists
  • what is the released number
  • what is the deviation between expected and released number
Steps to reproduce this issue

Websites like the following managed to get all this information in a timely manner on their websites.

http://www.forexfactory.com/calendar.php


http://www.fxstreet.com/economic-calendar

I don't know how this can be programmed obviously, but other sites have this feed apparently. Maybe it's possible to get this feed from their websites directly into multicharts.
