Deutsche Börse adds global treasury auction data to machine-readable news feed

08/09/2011

Deutsche Börse has added global treasury auction data to its algorithmic news feed “AlphaFlash”. The global treasury data package provides key treasury auction data from 12 countries directly from the source in a low latency, machine readable format. The new service is designed for algorithmic traders, asset managers, hedge funds, analysts and professional investors whose trading decisions are based on government bond market activity.

“Especially in today’s financial environment, speedy access to government bond data is essential. Sovereign debt markets have become more and more volatile over recent years, impacting all other asset classes and the world economy. The global treasury feed enables market participants to instantly access treasury auction announcements and execute their automated trades”, said Georg Gross, Head of Front Office Data & Analytics at Deutsche Börse.

AlphaFlash Global Treasury provides data from the following 12 countries: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Italy, New Zealand, Poland, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland and United Kingdom. A separate data package providing U.S. Treasury auction data has been available since the launch of AlphaFlash in April 2010. Additional countries will be added later in 2011.

AlphaFlash delivers low latency, machine-readable economic indicators and corporate news. Subscribers can choose between several data packages, e.g. U.S., Canadian, European or Asia-Pacific economic indicators, as well as the AlphaFlash Corporate News Germany feed and two treasury feeds. AlphaFlash is available in the following 11 data centers: Chicago, Secaucus (New Jersey), Washington D.C., Frankfurt, London (3), Sydney, Tokyo and Singapore (2).
