The capital market is an information and knowledge market.

Information and knowledge are the be-all and end-all of business in general and of the capital markets in particular.

What type of information are we targeting in the global capital markets?

Is it possible to make do with economic information and news alone, or should we expand our inquiry and seek also essential news that are not necessarily economic, but that ultimately affect economic developments? In my view, the definition of “financial information” should be a broad one, because nearly every substantive event taking place anywhere in the world has some economic effect.

Even when we have the required knowledge or information, we may not know how to correctly interpret the information we have collected.
Even if we have the knowledge and we understand its economic effect, we may not know how the market will react to the information.
Even if we have the knowledge, we understand its economic impact, and we know how the market will respond, we may not be able to predict when the market will respond and for how long.
Suppose, for example, that gold is discovered in Australia. How will such an item affect the Australian currency and the price of gold? What will the discovery affect first, the price of gold or the strength of the Australian currency? Or will the effect be simultaneous? How long will the effect on the price of gold or on the Australian currency last? When to enter a transaction? When to realize the gains? How do we deal with a transaction as it is taking shape in light of events occurring at the same time in the market?
All these questions are important for the purpose of our decision making.

The amount of information In a technologically advanced world, saturated with media and with multiple channels of communication, with Internet available everywhere, there is an inexhaustible amount of information, including news and commentary. This information flows from anywhere to anywhere in the world.

On what information should we focus? Should we take into account only the biggest and most significant news, or narrow our focus to certain topics or even
certain companies?

Information channels

Naturally, it is impossible to listen to all channels of communication at all times.

How to check the source of the information and its credibility? Do we select a news channel that filters certain information on certain topics of interest to us, or
a communication channel that publishes news on certain subjects that interest us?

The alternative

Clearly, it is not possible to digest the amount of information available without
experience, professional knowledge, and good and reliable sources of information. Therefore, we need alerts from independent, credible, and experienced

Using alerts

Good alerts must meet the following requirements:

  1. Reach the user in real time.
  2. Include explanations and graphic analysis, to help users not only with their decision making, but also to develop and expand their professional knowledge.
  3. Reach the users anywhere, at their desktop computers and mobile phones, not only when they are at their desk at work, but also when they are on vacation or simply walking in the park.
  4. The information included in the alert must be transmitted at once, not in parts, to help users see the whole picture in one place or in one window.
  5. The alert is not a stand-alone entity, but must be part of a sequence of alerts that creates a process, so that users have the ability to see and examine every transaction and respond to it even as it is taking shape.
  6. The system of alerts must signal not only when the user is entering a transaction, but must also track it until the user exits from the transaction.
  7. Ability to allow users to see all the stages of the transaction, from the entrance alert to the exit alert, and in the same window also the history of all alerts in the past week.
  8. Reach the trader in advance, allowing him enough time to carry out the transaction.
