Scan for News Feed in ThinkorSwim

Is there a scanner in ThinkorSwim that we can use to scan for only stocks that have news (Catalyst) in the last 24H?

is there a way to create a script in ToS that plots a label on the chart if there was any news (news that is reported in ToS) about the stock that day or previous day or that week type of thing ?

No. You would need to use the News widget in ThinkorSwim and/or the Trade Flash widget.

Hey.

I need a script that can be added as a filter to Watchlist. The filter should show if any news has come out at the moment.

Thank you for your help)

Can NEWS articles be inserted as a bubble on a 1 minute chart, for a stock?
Nope...!!! There is no way to associate news with chart data... There would have to be a data field in the TOS instrument data feed in order to have a trigger and there isn't one... Essentially, if you can't display it in a watchlist you can't use it as a trigger and I haven't found any such data field...

Bummer. Although you can set news alerts.

This is my first post. I would like to know if there is a way to scan for certain text from the news section? For example, I want to search on the "Needham" on all stocks, how do I set this up? Thanks and Appreciate your response.

@geebeeaye Click on the "+" symbol at the bottom of the watchlist sidebar area and choose "Live News". It's not currently possible to access news through ThinkScript.



Edit: Unless do you mean earnings dates? If so, search the site. I believe there are a couple of such watchlist column codes already posted.
