We have signed up many of the world’s most successful equity options market makers, a true testament to the speed and accuracy of Selerity’s data
New York, NY (PRWEB) June 17, 2013
Selerity, a provider of real-time intelligence & event data solutions for the financial services industry, today announced the launch of its low latency US earnings date announcements (EDA) event data feed for automated equity options traders.
Selerity’s low latency EDA event data feed delivers real-time, machine-readable earnings dates for over 3,000 US companies within milliseconds of the event being disclosed. The feed was designed specifically for automated equity options traders looking to generate alpha or mitigate risk from volatility created by earnings date surprises. With 99%+ data accuracy, Selerity’s EDA event data feed also drives operational efficiency by allowing firms to systematically track and update their systems that rely on earnings dates.
More than 20% of US earnings date announcements from high-profile companies occur during market hours, when liquidity is at its height and the markets are most reactive to events, creating significant opportunities for trading and risk management.
“Our new EDA offering further establishes Selerity as the leading provider of low latency corporate actions data to automated investment firms,” said Jeff Otten, Executive Vice President of Sales and Business Development, Selerity. “Since launching the beta program, we have signed up many of the world’s most successful equity options market makers, a true testament to the speed and accuracy of Selerity’s earnings date announcements data.”
Selerity’s EDA event data feed marks a significant expansion of the Company’s current low latency corporate actions offering, which already includes US earnings and US dividends. Traders can access Selerity’s low latency corporate actions data in real-time through a global network of Selerity’s points of presence (PoPs) in Equinix’ New Jersey (NY2), Chicago, (CH1) and Frankfurt (FR2) datacenters.
