Standard & Poor’s, the financial information and ratings company, has launched a Chinese language version of its Web site, globalmarkets.com.hk, as well as enhanced its coverage of Central and Eastern Europe on its globalmarkets.com site.
Subscribers to the Chinese service will have access to analysis and strategies on FX and US fixed income markets on a 24-hour-a-day basis. The site will also allow subscribers to integrate the service directly onto their own Web site or intranet, which can then be distributed to their clients as a value added service.
The European service offers an additional 150 Web pages, which include 24-hour access to comments, strategisers, surveys, statistical time series and charts for all the major economic indicators of the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Russia, Slovakia and Turkey. Additions also include a daily market summary page, enhanced insight into the derivatives market and an interest rate overview for the Central and Eastern European region. A central bank and political profile section for each respective country has also been added.
The Central and Eastern European enhancements complement the emerging European forex and debt coverage already offered.
