The Dow Jones elementized news feed API seems to stand out but are there any other machine readable news feeds out there that provide very low latencies that high frequency operations may peruse? I am especially targeting US based economic news releases and US stock related news feeds. I am looking to collocate several of my fx based hft strategies in New York with a very capable fx aggregation platform but also look into US based equities trading based on economic news releases. I am a price taker and have successfully implemented similar solutions on currency pairs in The Asian time zone but look to expand to trade US news releases.
The news feed must originate from one of the major news agencies and the feed must be released anywhere between Washington DC and NYC for latency purposes. Generally the news item of economic releases that the department of labor, for example, releases is prepared but quarantined until the dept actually releases their numbers. There have been couple changes enacted recently in order to prevent pre release leakages and I am looking for a solution that optimizes current news flow.
