FIA Replay: Event Driven Trading – Should You Consider It?

A few weeks ago, I was in Chicago for the FIA Expo, and the nice people at CFN Services asked me to moderate a panel on “Event Driven Trading – Should You Consider It?” Of course, I said yes.

For those wondering, event driven trading means trading on news, as opposed to market prices that have already been moved by news. It was an enlightening panel, with representatives from CFN, Need To Know News, Selerity and StreamBase Systems.

The highlight for me was the anecdote of how certain German economic news is distributed by handing sealed envelopes to reporters. There was also a delve into the world of Big Data.

Anyways, you can listen to a recording of the panel here.
