When examining the individual trades selected in a backtest, I sometimes would like to check whether there was any news on a specific date regarding a stock that might have conrtibuted to the price movement on that date. Could someone please help me by suggesting where I might be able to input a specific stock symbol and check the new for a historical date?

Thanks ... Steve

No problem Tuck! Hey, if you start off on the home page, there's a "heat map" to the right of the page. Click on any part of the map, and it zooms you into that area of the map. Then double click on any company and it pulls up that companies financials, news, etc....also on the home page, it has really great filters for Double Bottoms, Triangles, wedges, channels, H&S's etc....

Enjoy,


RIGGS
