Live Squawks Twitter-monitoring success gives traders an edge
London (PRWEB UK) 9 January 2013
Live Squawk, an innovative media monitoring service for traders, has proven that Twitter is fast-becoming an influential source of market-moving news. When Moodys downgraded Frances rating from Aaa to Aa1 at the end of 2012, the news broke first on Twitter. Live Squawks Twitter monitoring team spotted the tweet and broadcasted the news 17 minutes before the newswires started reporting it putting their clients in a position of being the first in the market to react.
Live Squawk is an audio news service for individual and professional traders, which broadcasts market commentary 24X5 from London and Singapore. A team of experienced analysts monitor all major newswires, websites, blogs and social media platforms. Relevant market news is verified and voice broadcasted over real-time internet streaming or dealer board systems.
Last October Live Squawk opened a new Singapore office to enable them to expand coverage of the growing Asian markets. In light of the recent success in being the first to bring their clients the news of Moodys downgrade of Frances debt, they have since expanded their Twitter monitoring team ensuring social media monitoring is an integral part of its operations.
