1. Overview

Whether you are a fundamental or technical trader news events are always important. During news events, we often see huge volatility in price. With the TDU News Indicator, you won't make the mistake of accidentally opening or being in a trade when an important news event is incoming. All news is shown in a clearly condensed table and also as vertical lines on your chart. You can choose to hide low and/or medium impact news and even filter out news events that are not important to your trading.

2. Settings

News indicator settings

2.1 Show low/medium/high impact news

The first 3 settings are pretty self-explanatory. They allow you to either show or hide low, medium, and/or high impact news.

2.2  Entry time offset in hours

Here you can specify your local time offset. All news events are dated in UTC.

Note that the indicator uses your chart time. Not your local PC time. So if your charts are on UTC-4 then just put -4 in here

2.3 Ignore

Here you can choose to ignore one or more countries. For example, if you are not interested in news events for CHF and JPY you can simply turn them off by entering CHF, JPY here. Note that you need to separate multiple items with a comma(,)

2.4 Show Table

If enabled then the news table will be shown, when disabled it will be hidden

2.5 Show # days

Here you can specify how many days of news should be shown on your chart

2.6 Hide past events

When enabled any news events which already happened will not be shown on the chart. When enabled, old news events will be shown on the chart 


3. Bloodhound/strategies support

The indicator exports a single plot called News which you can use from your strategies or Bloodhound templates

The values are:

 0 No news
1 Low impact news
2 Medium impact news
3 High impact news


You can also specify the number of minutes the signal should be given before the news event and after the news event.

 For example in the screenshot below the signal will be given from 5 minutes before until 5 minutes after the news event
