I've been daytrading uk cfd's very happily for the past 20 years but want to start daytrading US equities as liquidity on the uk order books are becoming a joke with the computerized algos for DMA traders such as myself.

I'd like to employ the same strategy which in the UK involves reading the UK RNS feed at 7am and reading the results and breaking stock news from the same news source throughout the day.

My question is if I wanted to do the same thing for US equities what are the news feeds I would need ? From what I understand there's no one real equivalent of RNS in the US and no one place where all company specific news is released . It seems to be a bit of mishmash from my initial research and news seems to be released from many sources.

If this is correct , what do similar traders, like myself , rely on on in the US to get such timely stock news releases from so they can trade it and be informed throughout the day for any breaking stock specific news.
Many thanks.

Presumably you already know about TradeTheNews and why do you think it would be better for US equities given that the algos are probably even more active ?

Thanks for the reply. I didn't know about TradetheNews.
I understand your point about there being way more algos in the US and the movements are more violent than over here .The difference here is the underlying liquidity at the bid offer in the uk has become very low so its very hard to get any fills in any size without moving the price substantially . That has made trading harder in the uk.
