This information about Deutsche Börse making use of NTKN technology to provide “the fastest economic data for algo traders”prompted an email exchange with an interested reader. At least for me it is now clear that NTKN, CEP News etc are/were mainly in service for algorithmic traders. I am not convinced that their motive was to [...]

My basic thesis is and always has been that neither CEP nor NTKN are in the news business, but rather they are [...]
Confirmed by Vigilant Futures director Arvind Ramanathan in a telephone conversation yesterday. Both he and Marco Gomez worked together at Refco and Gomez also worked at Vigilant Futures before he started CEP News.
Now updated —————— Canadian Economic Press or CEP News is a curious news operation with a puzzling business model.
