I've been working on this news indicator and it's now developed enough to share.
I've also added a beta version of my breaking news indicator for you to play with.
  1. Data from the ForexFactory weekly calendar is refreshed hourly to catch any mid-week calendar updates from FF.
  2. Events can be filtered by impact, currency and category.
  3. A table of current and upcoming events can be displayed in a choice of two widths and may be placed anywhere on the chart.
  4. Vertical lines may be plotted on the chart to mark past events.

    Mouse over the lines to see details.

  5. Audible alarms can be configured to use any WAV files in your MT4/sounds directory.
