Summary: Analyze complex market data and news quickly with Money.Net data through MATLAB.
Who? Data analysts and developers. MATLAB is the easiest and most productive software environment for market data analysis by financial engineers, data scientists, financial analysts, quants, strategists, risk managers, students, and academic researchers. Banks, hedge funds, asset managers, students and academics all use MATLAB.
What? Mathematical analysis software. MATLAB (matrix laboratory) is a programming language used to mathematically analyse large amounts of data, including market data, developed by the firm MathWorks, Inc. Money.Net is a market data firm providing realtime and historical market prices, reference fundamentals like economic data, financial statements, supply and demand numbers, as well as breaking news.

How is this better than Bloomberg? Unlike Bloomberg and other old clunky legacy expensive applications, no special add in is required to use Money.Net data in MATLAB. Money.Net just works natively with MATLAB, which is a huge benefit versus other market data vendors requiring a clunky add in to be installed and maintained.
Why? Speed and productivity. MATLAB is designed for data scientists that need to interact quickly with market data in a mathematical manner. The software allows easy 2D and 3D visualization of data, quick investigation of trade ideas using MATLAB’s extensive set of built-in math functions, and allows one to perform common mathematical tasks without having to program. The software allows for rapid curve fitting, data classification, signal analysis, and many other specific financial data tasks.

How is this better than Bloomberg? Bloomberg’s chat system is not encrypted. Symphony is.

Money.Net market information platform plus Symphony Chat is a complete secure replacement for Bloomberg at less than 1/15th the cost.
Why? Increased productivity, efficiency and security. Symphony is independent of any financial terminal, it is connected to many more end users, it is hugely less expensive than Bloomberg chat, and it is encrypted for security, which Bloomberg chat is not. The Symphony software allows for rapid communication of price runs, trade/hedging ideas, research, news headlines, financial analysis, and many other specific financial data tasks.
How? Single sign-in automatically each day. Money.Net customers have frictionless access to Symphony with a simple single sign in to Money.Net. When customers sign into Money.Net they will have the ability to have Symphony’s communication platform auto login seamlessly and securely. This single sign in will save mutual customers valuable time as they log in every day to Money.Net. Symphony will boot up separately in a web browser at the same time as Money.Net.
