Textbook definition of serendipity methinks (or maybe I'm just fantastic at Google searches).

It was pretty much there straight away when I searched. Glad it seems helpful. No idea on costings but I'd be really surprised if it isn't pitched very very competitively compared to Reuters / Bloomberg. And seems far more focused on your own specific needs.

I think even if you dont trade using Bloomberg, what they say on there has a huge impact on the markets.

I've made huge amounts using the news on there. You only need to hear about the stress tests earlier. Check the Citibank trade. This was put on after they announced that the max capital injection was for Bank of America therefore Citi was less impacted.

I've also made a bit on FX which I dont normally trade using tips from Bloomberg.

Obviously this is not my entire strategy but it enhances my returns.
I initially gave you the benefit of the doubt, but now I am convinced that you are full of crap and you ought to keep your mouth shut. You will just confuse and misdirect newbies who are serious about trading

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!

Yeah - shocking, but also quite funny. Wouldn't be as funny if I paid the bill for mine directly though that's for sure. Is it me, or is this kinda thing getting more common right now as well?

Btw - I just did a quick google search and found this....

Had never heard of it before. Any use?

I took a look at this 2/3 years ago.

Tailored towards the Equity markets and no US data was a showstopper for me. And it was all Java based which just pissed me off at the time.

OTOH, it was about 200 notes a month.

200 sterling? Much more realistic then. Not institutional quality necessarily, but not institutionally priced either. I reckon it could be a good middle ground.

btw, before the inevitable question gets asked, let me just say - I don't work for on behalf of these guys - never even met them, just googled across it.
