Widget Spotlight #8: Benzinga's News
With FinanceBoards' web-based platform (no downloads needed), you can configure your dashboard(s) by selecting any of our 500+ financial data or information widgets, letting you review in one place only the financial data you're interested in. In the “Widget Spotlight” series, we pick one of these widgets, explain how it works, and go over why it’s a widget you should consider adding to your dashboard(s).
The Informational Widget in the Spotlight today is Benzinga’s News.
The Benzinga News Widget presents the latest articles that are being released on the Benzinga.com platform. They usually reference specific stocks and are geared towards actionable market news like rumors and trade ideas which drive the news and can act as great research articles on a particular stock or groups of stocks.
There are many ways that you can keep track of live news feeds on a particular stock that you are researching on the FinanceBoards platform after you have logged in.
One of the ways is to make sure you select and place the Benzinga News Widget on your main stock research dashboard. Another way as was mentioned in Spotlight #5 is to select the Trading View Company Information Chart Widget which includes live news on the particular stock that you are researching within live and historical Share price information.
Yet Another way is to have the News Dashboard be one of the Dashboards that you have on your main screen. You can find this dashboard by clicking on; configure, below the listed main dashboards and then selecting it from the published dashboards category and moving it to your main menu in the order you would like to see it. This dashboard is pre-configured with separate live RSS feeds from News Widgets for Benzinga News, Nasdaq Stock News and Yahoo News. It can also be update to the stock you are researching by placing the stocks ticker symbol in the search location.
The breadth of FinanceBoards’ research data and information widgets are much greater than just News related Widgets. You can also create any Widget yourself from any API and add them to your dashboards, either our premade ones or ones you’ve created.
