Need a reliable news release source!

I commonly use economic calendars to keep up with economic events, but I've not had any luck finding one that is up-to-the-minute results of economic events. For example, myfxbook usually doesn't post the actual figures for NFP, unemployment, consumer confidence, etc.. until after the market has already reacted to the results..results which I have no clue what they actually were. Does anyone know of any source that publishes these numbers as soon as they are released. There has to be a source where most of the other traders are getting their info, because, like I said earlier, the market reacts to the figures much quicker than myfxbook publishes the results.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Drew, reliability is our middle name 😄

Kidding aside, our economic calendar is probably the best (free) economic calendar out there - providing truly real-time data as it is released. You should keep in mind that the delay in data received isn't due to any issues - it is simply the time it takes until the event is released to the public.

Why not creating an API Myfxbook Calendar?

@CrazyTrader for what purpose?

The data is obtained with a license fee and therefore we're not allowed to distribute the data freely.

Then at least a solution where we get the date & time of high impact news without data.... This would be great to create remind alert 5 min before each news or disable trading for some kind of strategy or activate straddle strategy just before the news...
