News updates

I would like to know what is a good place to get a morning update
on the news before the trading day begins?

there are a lot of threads about news or you can use the news time line in your trading client. But the trading day is 24 hours so you really need to look before a specific session.

Forexfactory has a pretty good news calendar that gives weight on importance of news using a color chart. You could check that out.
