The Streaming News window in ScottradeELITE® allows you to view the most up-to-date news stories available from Dow Jones News. Access to this news source is free to ScottradeELITE clients.
Upon launching Streaming News, news stories will display in the list of available headlines. You may view more news stories by using the scroll bar on the right-hand side of the Streaming News window. The window will initially display up to 100 search results. If more results are available, scroll to the bottom of the news list and click “View More Headlines.” Clicking this link will display the next 100 results. You may continue to follow this process until all news stories are exhausted, at which point the “View More Headlines” link will not be available.
