What is the News Room
Squawk is a term used in the trading community for when someone is talking live about the news or reading off news headlines. This allows the traders to multi-task while listening to headlines.
Hours of Operation
Opening the Room
To open the News Room, simply click on News Room from the left-side menu bar of your platform. If you cannot see the News Room on your monitor, scroll down to the Tools section on the left-side menu bar.
To set the News Room as a separate browser window, click the pop-out icon in the upper right-hand corner of the News Room widget.
A helpful feature of our platform is the color-linking feature. Any posts with a pink highlighted $cashtag can be connected to other linked widgets.
You can see our guide here for more information on how to use the color link function.
Setting Audio Alerts
Set the bell icon like in other rooms (click here for more information). If the bell icon in the News Room is grayed out, as shown below, you will not receive an audio alert when a new post is made.
Keep in mind that the audio alert from the News Room needs to be on to hear alerts when news is posted. You will not get an audio alert for News Desk posts from the other rooms if you only have the bell enabled for the trading rooms or if you have the News Room closed.
Opening the Squawk (News Audio) Live Stream
Keep in mind that the squawk will not have audio at every minute of the day. You should expect to hear it most near market open and market close, or when there is increased news and market activity.
It is very possible not to hear audio from the squawk for over 30 minutes during mid-day/lunch hour, or other slow times.
For more details on making sure how to view if a stream is online, please make sure to review how to troubleshoot streaming issues here and how to adjust live stream and audio settings here.
Morning Mash-Up PDF
Please see the PDF attached at the bottom of this page as an example of a Morning Mash-Up.
Using the News Room for Trading
All stocks mentioned in the News Room should be looked at in conjunction with proper risk management. The news may suggest opportunities and catalysts for stocks to move. How to analyze news is discussed in our Warrior Pro classes.
Reminder: The news posted or mentioned in the News Room and squawk is not financial advice. See our full disclaimer here.
Here is one example where our News Desk posted vital information on a clinical trial update for a biotech stock. The stock did give a few opportunities for day trades.
