Fed Watch - Federal Reserve News

by Brian Brown, 3960 days ago

The Fed Watch RSS feed contains news about the Federal Reserve. Some traders, particularly bond and stock traders follow Federal Reserve Activity and try to quickly detect any sign of a potential increase or decrease in the Fed target rate.

Here are some examples of Fed news that appeared on July 9, 2010 and that are downloaded by this Fed Watch object:
- Because if the Fed Knows How to Do One Thing, It's How to Have Meetings
- What can the Fed do to help recovery?
- Federal Reserve presidents Hoenig, Fisher say no more stimulus needed

For each Federal Reserve News, the date, title, description, category and link are stored in an intraday database called "fed_watch". This database can be accessed by the vector-based language of this trading software or by the custom trading indicators tools to create for example a news sentiment indicator or to calculate the number of Fed news that contains a given keyword or set of keywords for each trading day.
The category field of the database contains the news item provider. Providers include Sound Money, Corporate Council, Denver Post, Nasdaq, CNBC, Yahoo, FoxBusiness.com, BusinessWeek, Institutional Investor, Market Watch, UPI, Mother Jones, Washington Post and Reuters.

The data is downloaded from an RSS feed provided by Congoo website. ^FED_WATCH is the ticker symbol that is associated with the Feed news data. The close price of this symbol is always equal to one. I have created this symbol so that Federal Reserve news can be stored under a unique symbol and can therefore be easily accessed and displayed.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
