Basically the 200 GBP is to save you doing some donkey work and getting the information that is aleady in the public domain, and to put it all in a nice wrapper.
Few bells and Whitles like alerts, RNS and there you go.

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.
