    Default Quickest way to find economic data releases

    This has been a frustrating area for me. I'm trying to find a source where I can instantly find out what happened when an economic report is released.

    Could anyone please refer me to some good sources please?

    Thanks

    Most brokers offer a news feature on their trading platform that instantly posts new headlines like economic releases. You might also want to take a look at the following sites:

    www.marketwatch.com
    www.bloomberg.com
    www.bloombergtv.com
    www.forextv.com

    I don't really know of too many internet sites that give good real-time news for the forex.

    If you have a TV nearby I would recommend watching CNBC.

    Bloomberg also has a radio broadcast that gives real-time news.

    If you're looking at US reports, I also recommend CNBC...they're always prepared to report the release as soon as it comes out. Especially the major ones like GDP, CPI, and NFP

    I use FXCM to demo trade and their squakbox plugin seems to release news reports right when they are released

    hey, just keep in mind... all the "free" online news report services are delayed. so if you're trying to trade the news as it comes out, you may have to pay a hefty premium to get an instant release
