Inside Market Data gathered leading industry experts for a webcast on September 13, 2012 to discuss how firms are employing an arsenal of tools for analyzing information
As the search for alpha becomes increasingly elusive and competitive, firms are employing an arsenal of tools for analyzing information, as well as demanding new types of data and metrics targeted at specific purposes, while data providers are meeting their needs by developing completely new analytics as well as new products that squeeze more value out of existing content sets.
• How the concept of "analytics" is evolving, from charting displays to different types of visual indicators, trading signals, calculation engines, and analysis for use in automated trading engines. What does this evolution tell us about how the roles of consumers at end-user firms is changing and what trends are driving these changes?
• With mobile technologies and data access increasingly becoming an important part of financial professionals' workflow, are traders and investment professionals looking for mobile access to analytical tools? And is the current generation of analytics able to meet these needs?
• As trading becomes increasingly automated, are analytics more or less important than in the past? Will analytics evolve to be part of algorithmic trading infrastructures, or focus on specific investor types or in certain asset classes, or will they change in some other way?
