News Window

ICE Data Services -

We provide free news as well as add-on news services. Free news comes in the form of Factiva news and can be access via the News Window. To access the news window select New from the main menu followed by News.  A keyboard shortcut (control +7) is also available.


In the title bar you can specify both the symbol as well as news service you wish to follow. Use the drop down menu to access a list of previously viewed symbols. If you wish to view all headlines, clear the existing symbol by highlighting it and pressing Delete then Enter

News Service

Use the drop down menu to select a specific news service. This menu is tied to your service entitlements which means it will only display news services that you are subscribed to.  Select All Services to display headlines for all the news services that you are subscribed to. 

Click the filter icon to expand the filter menu. This menu allows you to specify a category using the drop down menu. In addition you can run a keyword search of existing headlines. The keyword search has a toggle to switch from any or all of these words. Days back allows you to view historical headlines from up to 15 days prior. 

Read Story
Each headline displayed will carry a timestamp along with the name of the news service that originated the headline. Double click the headline to view the story if one is available. You can also right click a headline and select Read to launch the story window. 

News Properties
From the main menu select News, Properties to access this menu (or highlight the news window and press alt + enter).

Default Row
The default row menu allows you to specify the font type and size along with a button for bold and italics.  There are 4 color settings which include text and background.  Background #2 is used if you want alternating colors for each row.  The alternating colors will not include flash news headlines (described below).  Read news text will change the color of the headline text after the story has been read (by double clicking the headline or choosing read from the right click menu). 

Flash News
Use this menu to specify the font type and size for flash news (along with a button for bold and italics).  adjusting the text and background colors is also available.

Any headline with an * in front is considered flash news. Typically these are headlines only (with the stories added later) that allows news vendors to quickly put out news before an accompanying story is ready. 

Grid Lines
Use this menu to change the grid line color or turn grid lines off by unchecking horizontal grid lines.
