The Tradeweb #TopTen Twitter Feeds in Derivatives, Trading & Technology

| Tradeweb

For those of us tracking breaking news across the global financial marketplace, one word has dominated recent discussions on gathering and analyzing event-driven information: Twitter.

In just a few short years, the influence of the lightning-fast social medium has become synonymous with accelerating the viral flow of news around the world; and its reach is spreading across the institutional financial community at a similar pace.  Consider research underway at the MIT media lab on the effect of information flow on investor returns, and the recent effects of the aptly dubbed #HashCrash, sparking wild volatility across markets. But as the interest rate and credit default swap markets evolve to trade more electronically, where does the derivatives industry overlap with Twitter?

As a top electronic marketplace with a leading voice in the debate on derivatives reform, we thrive on the global discussion of swaps trading and technology. We are enthusiastic producers and consumers of news and information on Twitter, and are well positioned to direct you toward the best. To get you started, we've prepared a list of our top ten Twitter feeds focused on swaps reform, trading and technology – and of course their derivative sources of important industry news. Scroll down for our complete slideshow, or you can subscribe to the entire group here.

We'll continue to update the list with new additions, but let us know if you have any recommendations in the comments section below – we look forward to hearing from you.
