Q2 2012

Since machine readable news feeds first emerged, solutions have evolved that cover many of the globe's most prominent market moving economic events (such as US Non-Farm Payroll) and make them instantly tradable on major US and European markets. While this is of course valuable in generating alpha, automated traders are now looking for more. In line with their desire to deploy their price driven trading models in new markets and geographies, they are now also looking to do the same with news/event driven strategies. This dovetails well with the major enhancements many emerging markets have made to their trading platforms in recent years - in many cases, the technology used delivers the same or even better matching performance than many mature markets. As a result, there is a growing global trading community now active on these venues.
