News – Machine Readable – is in the News

Share article

The low-latency delivery of machine readable news – to drive trading algorithms before the market moves – is a continuing story in itself. So here’s a quick roundup of recent headlines, including news from Selerity, Deutsche Borse, RavenPack and Thomson Reuters …

* Selerity has installed an aggregation point of presence at Equinix’s Frankfurt data centre, where it will act as hub for European markets. The company is already based at Equinix’s New Jersey and Chicago facilities, but the Frankfurt installation will cut out transatlantic communications and so greatly reduce latency for European firms focusing on local markets.

* Deutsche Börse has added global treasury auction data to its AlphaFlash algorithmic news feed, providing key treasury auction data from 12 countries directly from the source. Those countries are Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Italy, New Zealand, Poland, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.  United Kingdom. AlphaFlash has provided U.S. Treasury auction data since April 2010.

AlphaFlash is available at data centres located in Chicago, New Jersey, Washington D.C., Frankfurt, London, Sydney, Tokyo and Singapore.

* RavenPack is collaborating with TMX’s Datalinx unit to help trading firms detect trends for the Canadian markets. TSX/CP Equities News has been introduced to RavenPack’s offering, and combines market information from TMX Datalinx with reporting from The Canadian Press, a national news agency.

* Thomson Reuters has rolled out its Elektron managed content service at the National Stock Exchange of India’s co-lo centre in Mumbai. Among other content, it will provide l0w-latency access to machine readable news services. The driver for this rollout is the rapid growth of algorithmic trading in the country. Some analysts estimate that by the end of 2012, the levels of algorithmic cash equity trading in India will be more than 20% of the overall trading volumes in the Asia Pacific region.
