DislikedDo you have to manually run the FFcal at the start of each week, or auto?Ignored
You need to run FFcal manually, whenever you want to update your chart with the latest data from FF calendar. I run it maybe 2-3 times every day, in case there are belated additions or changes in FF calendar (which is often the case).
DislikedThis wonderful tool could be made even more wonderful by having the display appear in a window instead of as an overlay on the main chart.
It would eliminate much clutter when tracking mulitple currencies in metatrader, methinks!Ignored
Wanting to get a csv file of the historical Forex Factory Calendar
Have downloaded your News v3003.zip and successfully ran the ffcal.exe
I only get data going up until 20-Aug-2010
What to do to get data up to current time (May-2011) ?
DislikedI have a separate 'dummy' chart that I use for informational indys - time zone clocks, tabular info for all pairs (spreads, swap, ADR, etc), Plot News and VO-Pro monitor - that I can refer to whenever I need to. That way, the charts that I trade off don't get cluttered with all this 'extra stuff'.
Anyway, I'll consider your request for a later release. It's not a trivial change; sizing the window to allow for the correct vertical alignment of both the symbols and rolling window will take some thought.Ignored
Dislikedi might be misunderstanding, but i would think it would actually be just as easy or possibly easier. .....Ignored
DislikedThanks Hanover. Really appreciate it.
I do back testing in Amibroker and so need to get the news data in a csv format so that I can get it into a suitable format for my test.
I dont seem to be able to change the date time zone. I uses Eastern Australian Standard time for all my charts, so I need the news times to match
My Question: when setting up ffcal , how can I change the time offset in the ouput csv files ?Ignored
DislikedJust noticed a bug in Recent News v310, if you specify MainChart = FALSE.
The indy will always attempt to plot in the bottommost sub-window. Hence if you subsequently add indys (e.g. RSI, MACD, etc - or third party creations) into new (lower) sub-windows, the news indy will jump windows, overplotting data in the bottommost sub-window. And its scaling will screw up, as the scaling is always set by the first indy to occupy a sub-window.
I'll fix it when I get some spare time....Ignored
string windowname = "hanPNIndi"; int thiswindow; IndicatorShortName(windowname); thiswindow = WindowFind(windowname); if (MainChart) thiswindow = 0; ... objectcreate(blah,blah, thiswindow..... blah);
