Shamelessly stolen the idea from stovedude's 1.04 N1 version
Stovedude, what about using the TSD newsfilter? I always get repeating errors with ffcal (no matter what EA) after some hours.. like "... FFCal .. News indicator is disabled because no connection to broker"
You shamefully forgot one line, but that's OK. You can try this FFCAL version. The previous version only shows the error when your platform loses connection, which will be a problem with any news indicator. This version will not print the error, which is unnecessary anyway.
there was some research done in other forums that suggested the market could be affected up to 10 hours before and 10 hours after major news events. So maybe that's why people put news filter on all EAs...just as a caution.
