I have previously created and uploaded a downloader and a list of symbols for the London Stock Exchange.
As with the downloader that used Google to retrieve historical end-of-day data, this item uses Google to download news data feed for companies listed in the LSE (London Stock Exchange).
Downloader: LSE - UK - EOD data
List of symbols: LSE Symbols
News feeds are downloaded for each symbol and are stored into a custom database "uk_news", with the following fields:
Date: The news item release date
Title: The news item title
Description: The news item description
Link: The news item link at Google
After you download this object, open the downloader and click on 'Start' to begin the downloading process. You can use the database viewer (Tools -> Database data) to display the news data for the selected symbols. You can also plot news items in your charts.
Here is a way to remove symbols that do have news data:
The first time you run the object, select all symbols. After you finish the downloading process, Select 'Tools' (top-right), in the 'Download Manager', and click on 'Create a symbol list from the unchecked symbols'. This will open a form that contains the symbols that had news data. (If an error is displayed while downloading news feed for a symbol, this means that there is no news data for that symbol).
Copy all the symbols and close the form. Now in the 'Symbols' tab in your download item, you need to set the symbols selection filter to 'list' (Under the 'Name' column). Click on 'Custom Symbols', click on the grid cell, and then insert the previously copied symbols in the text box.
