Automated Trader are pleased to announce enhancements to our News Alerts and Summaries service. You can now set up to 100 keywords from news across the site including Industry News, Market News, Articles and Blogs to trigger either a real-time alert or to be included in a daily or weekly summary.

It could be that you want a summary of overnight FX or Fixed Income market news delivered daily at 06:30 to read on your way to work. Or, for news that you want in real-time, perhaps you'll specify "Non Farm" or "Bailout" as your keywords. Equally, technologists might want to keep abreast of "Latency" or "Smart Order Routing" for delivery weekly on a day of their choosing.

The user interface has been enhanced to make it easier to specify your keywords and choose how and when they are delivered, and best of all the service is free. Click HERE to set up your alerts.
