Apologies folks, I think I have got my wires crossed.

The system I looked at was similar (looked at Alpha too but unsure about the trial... maybe I didn't bother because they were same UK equities focused, can't remember tbh).

I looked at something called KTS market terminal, and they don;t seem to exist anymore.

Sorry for any confusion.

not quite correct. bloomberg said S&P had downgraded the OUTLOOK from stbale to negative. Key is the wording.

True, but the way it was said on the squawk it sounded far worse. Either that or I wasn't listening properly. Either way I wasn't in a position so I don't know why I'm moaning.

For anyone here that works at Reuters, please could you put auction results in the real-time economic data section, so that the b/c (or o/c), amount and tail pop up instantly... having to scan through the red text in the top right before RAN comes out with it is massively inefficient.

Thanks awfully.

You do not understand what you are talking about, at all. But what is worse is that you do not understand that you do not understand!
There seems to be quite a lot of people on this board who ;

a) Have big attitudes but can't add up or compute a basic bond duration
b) Think they know everything about trading and can give better advice than everyone else........if anyone was that good they would be probably on a boat or their own island, certainly not posting on this board
c) Trade beer money
d) Think they everyone else trades beer money
e) Think that they trade more beer money than everyone else
