FlexTrade has announced the integration of Dataminr’s global macro news feed into the FlexTrader EMS.
Within the trader's Dataminr account, customised watchlists can be created ensuring that only the most relevant and directly impactful breaking news is delivered. For example, the firm says, within a financial markets search, traders can choose to select alerts based on sub-categories including foreign exchange and fixed income. Watchlists may be created based on assorted criteria, which can include company name, topics (finance, global awareness, general news etc.) and/or industry sectors (banking and finance, insurance, media etc.) to name a few, according to the firm.
