Mostly… fixed income and cross product eTrading

Reuters/Bloomberg IM

Filed under: etrading, Nuts and Bolts — holky @ 8:46 am

Finextra tells us that Reuters have launched cross platform Instant Messaging, linking their RM community with/into the big wide world. (I should have said finally in that sentence – we were talking to them in some detail about this sort of thing over 3 years ago).

Reuters Messaging (RM) Interchange is being billed as a global instant messaging hub, connecting Thomson Reuters RM with Cisco’s Jabber XCP, IBM Lotus’ Sametime and Microsoft’s LCS/OCS. Users connected to the hub will be listed on an inter-company community directory.

Does an inter-company community directory that (somewhat) validates each user @ their particular firm is who they claim now present a credible challenge Bloomberg messaging? … and given the more open nature of this offering, should we expect quicker development of conversational e-trading functionality?
