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 and analytics at Deutsche Börse.
AlphaFlash 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 US Treasury auction data has been available since the launch of AlphaFlash in April 2010. Additional countries will be added later in 2011.
