"My Alpha screen has a number of news windows all filtering for different types of story – results, broker updates, economic – so I can focus where I need to"

Alpha provides Dow Jones Newswires and a full RNS feed with five years history. You can view news in different ways:

  • Full news feed
  • Stock-specific news
  • Filtered news

Alpha includes a specific news layout with a range of filtered news windows. This helps you focus on specific news categories such as broker comments or company results. We can set up filters for the news stories of most interest to you.

You can link a news window to any list, heatmap or watchlist so that whichever stock you select you’ll be reading the relevant news stream.

Can’t find the story you are looking for? Simply start typing the word or phrase you are looking for and Alpha will start looking for matches.

In Alpha’s Market View – the most popular with clients - we’ve made sure the latest Dow Jones Newswires UK Morning Briefing is always visible as it gives you a guide to what is expected to happen to the market that day.

We’ve also included the UK Summary; revisit this throughout the course of the day as it updates every two hours. It’s a great way of keeping track of the day’s top stories.

News filtering

Alpha enables you to filter your news feed whichever way you like – so you spend the least time possible to find the news of most interest to you. You can set different filters in different news windows.

You can also set global news filters (e.g. hide all sports news) which will be applied to all your news windows and filters.

An easy-to-use interface helps you create and manage your news filters.
