    The Streaming News tool lets you monitor breaking news on securities you are tracking and screen content for the information you need to make investment decisions.

    News Searches

    The News tool lets you display up to 10 news searches at a time, showing headlines for each one. The most recent headlines always appear on top. Hover your cursor over any headline to see a synopsis of the news story. Click the headline to read the full story in a separate browser window.

    Easy ways to manage your searches include the use of:

    • Expand/Collapse-Expand or collapse a set of search results by clicking the arrow to the left of the search text field. When collapsed, search results will only display the most recent headline.
    • Resize-Change the size of any set of search results. First, place your cursor over the bottom of any set of search results. When your cursor turns to a double arrow, click and drag to make the box larger or smaller.
    • Drag and Drop-Move news searches up or down within the News tool. First, place your cursor over the header bar of the news search. Drag the search up or down, releasing the mouse to drop it into place.

    Search Types

    There are two types of news searches.

    • Custom Searches-Run simple queries on any symbol or keyword you choose. You can also conduct a search using multiple symbols or a combination of symbols and keywords.
    • Prebuilt Searches-Run a more advanced search from any of the pre-built searches in the New Search and My News menus. The New Search menu offers searches on categories such as Headline News, Sectors, Earnings, Analyst Ratings, Corporate Events, Insider Trading, and more. The My News menu lets you run searches for news on any securities in your account(s), Watch List(s), and open orders.

    Running a New Search

    There are two ways to run a new search.

    Run a new custom search by entering symbols or keywords in the text field of any open news search and clicking Enter. When you enter new search parameters, headlines from your new search overwrite your previous search.

    You can also run and display a new search without overwriting the contents of an existing search. Choosing any option from the New Search, My News, or Saved Searches menus will create a new search. To run a new symbol or keyword search, select the Symbol/Keyword option from the New Search menu.

    Saving a Search

    Save a search using the Action menu next to the text entry field. Once saved, your searches are available in the Saved Searches dropdown menu. You can save up to 50 custom searches. A search name will automatically be generated when you save a search. You can choose to accept this default name or create your own.

    Deleting a Saved Search

    Within the Saved Searches dropdown there is an option to delete a Saved Search. Choosing this will allow you to select and delete any of your Saved Searches from the list.


    For any active search, use the Filters menu to narrow the results. You may apply filters using one or all of the criteria below. Separate filters may be applied to each set of search results and will only apply to the associated set of headlines. Filter by:

    • Providers-Filter results by news provider (such as Dow Jones or MarketWatch). You can also change the default news providers for all future searches in the Settings menu.
    • News Types-Customize the types of news stories you want to view.
    • Sectors-Filter search results by any of 10 market sectors.
    • Timeframe-Narrow search results to a specific timeframe.

    Action Menu

    The Action menu is located next to the text entry field and includes quick access to a variety of tasks, including saving a search or finding additional information within search results.
