Deutsche Börse - Market Data & Analytics has launched "AlphaFlash", its algorithmic news feed, in a data center in Sao Paulo. The feed is available now in Brazil, marking AlphaFlash's official expansion into South America.
AlphaFlash is hosted at a data center at a local exchange in Sao Paulo.
"Brazil is considered the leader in algorithmic and high frequency trading in Latin America. As this growing market continues to develop, we see greater demand from local quant traders, hedge funds and market participants to consume machine-readable news quickly and efficiently. The new data center allows customers to access AlphaFlash as fast as possible—right on the spot in Brazil, so they can swiftly execute their automated trades," said Georg Gross, Head of Front Office Data & Analytics at Deutsche Börse.
Launched in April 2010, AlphaFlash delivers low latency, machine-readable economic indicators and corporate news. Subscribers can choose among several data packages, e.g. U.S., Canadian, European or Asia-Pacific economic indicators, U.S. and Global Treasury Auctions, the Chicago PMI as well as the Corporate News Germany feed. AlphaFlash is available in a number of data centers across the globe, including Chicago, Secaucus (New Jersey), Washington D.C., Sao Paulo, Frankfurt, London, Sydney, Tokyo and Singapore.
