CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. and LONDON, Sept. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ChartIQ, creators of Finsemble, and UK-based Market EarlyBird announce a partnership that simplifies social filtering and monitoring on the financial desktop. EarlyBird is a read-only, fully compliant and anonymized Twitter client built so users can monitor Twitter activity, using powerful filtering tools to bring the Tweets that matter the most to the surface. Finsemble is a desktop integration platform with production-ready, customizable technology that connects any number of disparate applications together.

“Making desktop tools easy to use and effective for the finance professional is one of Finsemble’s main goals. The technology provided by Market EarlyBird adds power and scale to social monitoring on the desktop - it’s the perfect tool to cut through the clutter and immediately deliver market insights,” Dan Schleifer, CEO of ChartIQ comments.

The integration between apps gives users the ability to drag a Tweet containing a Cashtag ($VOD for example) from EarlyBird into the ChartIQ app, and leveraging Finsemble technology, it automatically charts the price for that stock. Drag the same Tweet onto your messaging app and send it to a colleague. The disparate apps sync, link, and communicate with one another thanks to Finsemble and are easily controlled through a unified desktop experience.

Danny Watkins CEO of Market EarlyBird says “The team at ChartIQ decided it was time to disrupt the market and return the choice of apps to the firm and the desk. Market EarlyBird is enthusiastically participating as a Finsemble Ecosystem partner.” EarlyBird is already in use in some of the world’s largest banks and hedge funds. 

With Finsemble, independent best of breed financial applications like EarlyBird can be easily integrated to advance end users workflow and make filtering through data faster and easier. With the number of apps available within the Finsemble Ecosystem, trading firms can choose exactly which type of market data, news, curated social media, charting, messaging, trading, pricing, blotter, and other apps they want to integrate, rather than being held back by one market provider’s offering that performs below user’s expectations.
