Hello,

I'm trying to figure out how to interpret news headlines from iq feed with matlab. Below are some examples from AAPL which I just pulled.

I would like to know what the 3 letters are the start of the string correspond to. Quickly scanning the AAPL items I've noticed the codes, CPR, RTC, RTB, CBW. What do they mean and where can I get more information on them?

'N,CPR,21538147367,:AAPL::OCR::TRV::EOG:,20140605070145,Equities Marking a New High -- Research on Apple, Omnicare, Travelers Cos, and '

'N,CPR,21537839723,:NXTD::GOOG::EBAY::TWTR::AAPL::V:,20140604083151,The Mobile Payment Revolution - Smartphone Apps From Square to Wocket(tm) ; How '

'N,CPR,21537526814,:AAPL::BIIB::TSLA::XONE::R:,20140603093147,Critical Alerts For Tesla, Apple, Ryder System, ExOne, and Biogen Idec Released '

'N,RTC,21537507805,:AAPL:,20140603080956,Apple Unveils IOS 8, OSX Yosemite'

'N,CBW,21535989635,:AAPL:,20140528163022,Apple to Acquire Beats Music & Beats Electronics'

The 3 letter codes are news sources, but I am not sure if Matlab exposes their descriptions to you within their API. The request you want to make is what we call a news configuration request, but I would suggest asking Matlab for the details regarding how this works within their API.
