Hi! Thank you for great indicator, I previously used "FFCalc" indicator, but it stoped working due to change of format of news presentation. It had values for news: previous and expected. I will upload mq4 of this indicator might be someone can have a look at it))

Ah, you have another variation of Derk's great indicator. I pasted in a couple of bug fixes I used on the original version, and I think it is OK now.

I also have a couple of bug fixes for my own indicator coming soon, but I am not doing any new features/changes at the moment.

Anyone have the newscal-v1.03 stop working? It says no further matching events. The newbrk indicator continues to work great.

Yes. The data source is down. Perhaps I should add some alternative data source options..

To see the lines on the H1 chart, set VLineMaxPeriod to 60 or more. By default vertical lines are only shown on M15 and below. (Note: If you use the vertical lines on higher periods like H1 you may not see all the lines because they may print on top of each other. e.g. a high impact event at 10:00 could be hidden by a low impact event at 10:30).

Anyone knows of a News-Indicator that shows holidays also (very fine would be an Indicator that shows just the HOLIDAYS)?
With such a tool I could easily overview when to set my TP just a few pips lower then ;-))
Thanks for any help and info.

Well I was going to just do bug fixes, but I got carried away and added some new features.

1. Table background is now optional. Somebody wanted to see the chart behind.
2. High impact events can now be filtered. So you can just show the holidays if you want.
3. You can use the DailyFX calendar as your source. It's a bit rubbish, but it is OK in an emergency in the unlikely event that FF is down.

Euclid,

Awesome work, with upgrades, e.g. #1 below,so now we can see the charts !

1. How about the ability to play with font size, e.g. down to size 6? That would reduce clutter.

2. Can your FCal be modded to be used instead of the FFCal-Scoobs which doesn't work anymore?

Euclid,

Same requests for the NewsBrk indy too...

1. Font size option, 2. Half-width table, 3. Transparent background option !

Yours and hanover's (more complex) FFCal are the only ones working, and hanover stopped updating his.
But you also have NewsBrk.

Regards,
Athar.

One great feature would be to show the Actual/Forecast/Previous values of each item in the calendar (as per FF's). Any chance of this happening?

Yes. I don't need it myself, but it's on my to do list.

I am interested in any suggestions for useful features for this, but at the moment I have no plans to develop it.
