In the last days, many of our users reported that the popular news indicator FFCAL stopped working. As a result, the news filter in some of ARGOLab expert advisors, which uses the FFCAL indicator, stopped working too.
Fortunately, this problem can be easily fixed.
One needs only to change the URL address of the news calendar from http://forexfactory.com/ffcal_week_this.xml to http://cdn-nfs.faireconomy.media/ff_calendar_thisweek.xml in the source code of the indicator and recompile it.
How to do this:
Open the source code of the indicator FFCAL.mq4 in MetaEditor from the MetaTrader folder. Search for the line sUrl = “http://forexfactory.com/ffcal_week_this.xml”; and replace it to sUrl = “http://cdn-nfs.faireconomy.media/ff_calendar_thisweek.xml”; Save the source file and compile it. Done.
