Was good at a time when the S+P and the greenback were highly corerlated in the very short term (i.e. in quiet times when there's naff all else going on). Would use it to basically influence a small lean on my pricing as a market maker in FX. Not much more than that really. Doubt I'd use it again but was amusing for a while.

edit: nb this wasnt really a full service comentary type thing - just raw price action from the pit deilvered at pretty much realtime speed (hence the racing commentary analogy).

Sigma Squawk offer a 4 week free trial of the radio commentary as well as sending out research e-mails. Only ever heard good things and I know he covers quite a few offices in London and abroad so traders must like his pub DJ style

My name is Matthew Cheung I am one of the directors of RANsquawk. Just saw this thread and would like to say that we offer free trials to anyone of our 4 channels -stocks, bonds, FX or gold (all three).

We also provide morning sheets which go out before the bund, short sterling, and equities opens. We update our website through out the day with all the relevant and important data releases, speakers, rumours etc..

We will be launching an energy channel in the next few weeks which will be run by an experienced oil analyst. We already provide an energy rundown ahead of the NYMEX pit open.

We also provide technical sheets written by Shaun Downey (global head of technical analysis at CQG) on bonds/stirs (bund, bobl, schatz, UST, gilt, Euribor, Short Sterling, Eurodollar), stocks (dax, cac, eurostoxx, smi, ftse, s&P, nasdaq, dj) FX (all major pairs and crosses) and NYMEX crude and gold.

Please contact RANsquawk on info@ransquawk.com or +44 (0)20 7664 4321 for a free trial.

We DONT sound like a pub DJ....

Many thanks

Matthew Cheung

I've had a trial of SquawkBox (S&P commentary). The background conversations one picks up are most fascinating, albeit pretty banal - football, best Chicago neighbourhoods (Southside), Bernanke ("Benny and the Jets"). Feels like eavesdroppping. Reckon someone said some things in confidence without realising a global audience.

One guy I heard everday sounded like a character from a 70's Shaft movie; but he was so cheerful - always laughing and joking, always cheered me up. He'd give instructions re positions/ exposure.

Pub DJ or racing commentator?

Any chance of posting an audio file?

I've done my quota of free trials this year I'm afraid.

Thanks
