Imagine it is Monday morning and you sit down at your desk to begin your day. In front of you are 12 monitors coming to life in a multicolored array of charts, graphs, videos and windows of scrolling text. For traders, this is a routine morning. Your job is to know all there is to know about your portfolio of companies, securities and/or industry. You’re charged with monitoring a lot of information. How do you ensure you don’t miss anything important?
One Chicago-based trading firm trying to be sure they missed nothing turned to Acquire Media for help.
Acquire Media is known for its real-time news delivery solutions, so the firm knew their time-sensitive requirements would be efficiently addressed. The real problem was finding the right coverage for the particular securities this firm was managing. They needed to know how to get rid of unnecessary noise and restrict the news to just those securities in their portfolio. In doing so, they needed to be sure they did not remove any relevant information.
