UK: LONDON: STOCK EXCHANGE WATCHES WALL STREET ANXIOUSLY
 
03:12
English/Nat Investors and dealers in London were anxiously watching events on Wall Street on Tuesday afternoon as the Dow Jones index fell further. A nervous City saw shares in leading British companies bounce back once trading started in New York. The Financial Times Stock Exchange 100 index of British blue chips slipped close to the day's lowest levels when 132 (b) billion dollars was wiped off shares in a 457 points fall in the minutes before Wall Street opened at 1430 G-M-T. But within 10 minutes of U-S trading resuming the FTSE recovered and was showing a fall of 376.9 points, down to 4-thousand-471.9. London newspapers carried the story of a meltdown on stock markets on Tuesday as they suffered their most drastic crisis since 1987's Black Monday. The market braced itself for the worst as Wall Street reopened at 1430 G-M-T, following the seven per cent slide that triggered its early closing on Monday. But a nervous City saw shares in leading British companies bounce back after sliding in advance of trading opening in New York. The U-K's Financial Times Stock Exchange 100 index of British blue chips fell by more than nine per cent in the first half hour of trading on Tuesday morning. At 1240 G-M-T the FTSE 100 had dropped by 6.69 per cent - down 324 points at 4-thousand-516 after falling more than nine per cent early in the session. Analysts cited turmoil in Hong Kong as the main trigger, although they said a meltdown was waiting to happen, with stock markets in general being overvalued. The chief executive of the London International Financial Futures Exchange explained what was happening. SOUNDBITE: (English) "There's a lot of volatility. There's a lot of price changes, which means a lot of volume. People want to hedge their positions. It's all to do with the atmosphere of uncertainty. If stock markets fall it creates an atmosphere of uncertainty. It also creates a bearish mood, a mood of pessimism. That's what is being reflected here. You see a mood of pessimism coming over bond markets, which means that the markets which relate to bond markets - the derivative markets of bond markets - are actually in a pessimistic mood, and they start falling too." SUPER CAPTION: Daniel Hodson, Chief Executive, London International Financial Futures Exchange At NatWest Stockbrokers in London workers braced themselves for the opening of the New York Stock Exchange. The Financial Times Stock Exchange 100 index of British blue chips slipped close to the day's lowest levels when 132 (b) billion dollars was wiped off shares in a 457 points fall in the minutes before Wall Street opened at 1430 G-M-T. Within 10 minutes of U-S trading resuming the FTSE recovered and was showing a fall of 376.9 points, down to 4-thousand-471.9. But the head of research at NatWest Stockbrokers said the bottom of the downturn may not yet have been reached. SOUNDBITE: (English) "When sentiment turns we do have a vicious downward spiral. What we're now waiting for is a sign that that downward spiral is petering out and the bottom has been reached, but at the moment there's not sign of it." SUPER CAPTION: Jeremy Batstone, Head of Research, NatWest Stockbrokers But while some City people chose to contemplate the ups and downs of the trading day and the risks involved, others were happy to skate on slighter thicker ice.

UK: LONDON: STOCK MARKET FALLS
 
01:18
English/Nat Share prices, led by falling technology stocks, dropped sharply on the London Stock Exchange in trading on Monday, following falls in Wall Street on Friday and in Asia earlier in the day. But analysts said they had expected the fall-out to be much worse. Within the first half hour of Monday's trading, the F-T-S-E 100-Share Index of blue chip stocks dropped 246-point-7 points, or four per cent, from Friday's close, falling through the 6-thousand-point barrier to 5,931-point-4. At 9 a-m (0800 GMT), the FTSE-100 steadied to 5,931.3 points, down 216.8 from Friday's close. The fall came as investors questioned the future of loss-making high technology and internet companies. Traders reported thin volume of sales as analysts battled to interpret how Wall Street would fare later in the day. But they said the market was overreacting to Friday's Wall Street share sell-off. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Well, it's not a meltdown it's not Armageddon. A lot of that is overdone. What we really have had a divergence between the old economy and the new economy stocks. SUPER CAPTION: Tom Sheridan, Managing Director, Barclays Stockbrokers Analysts advised investors not to panic sell. SOUNDBITE: (English) Q: So your message to investors that might be a bit worried this morning? A: No panic. This is not the end of the world. What we're seeing now for people that are already in the market, stay there, relax, keep your eyes open, there's going to be some good value opportunities for the short term in terms of those who are looking at the high tech sector, you need to discern which of those stocks are actually going to make money. Those which will eventually make money will justify some of the prices that they've seen. Hang in there." SUPER CAPTION: Tom Sheridan, Managing Director, Barclays Stockbrokers For analysts and investors the big question was whether the falls were the market adjusting to overheated prices of hi-tech shares, or the start of a crash similar to that of October 1987 when Wall Street plunged and the FTSE-100 index fell 20 per cent in a single day.

UK: LONDON: FTSE SHAKE-UP
 
01:55
English/Nat London's best-known share index moved into the 21st century on Wednesday, getting ready to dump some of Britain's most famous companies and replace them with high- tech stocks. The FTSE-100 (pron: Footsie-100) index is expected to be much more volatile as a result of the shakeup - because many of the new entrants have yet to pay a dividend. SUGGESTED VOICEOVER History in the making - the London Stock Exchange prepares for its biggest shake-up in its 16 year history. Financial chiefs are planning an upheaval later this month when nine technology companies and one media group are promoted to the FTSE-100 index of blue-chip shares. The quarterly shake-up - to come into effect after the close of trading on March 17 - underlines the love-affair the market has with Internet, telecoms and new media stocks. But the re-jig will cause disappointment for old-name companies which have provided vital services to British citizens for decades. Psion Computers is one of the new entries - it makes hand-held computers that offer Internet access on the move. It's just the sort of prospect that investors love - and Psion chiefs are delighted too. SOUNDBITE: "It's fantastic for three reasons. First it's a ringing endorsement by the City that we've got our mobile Internet strategy spot on. Secondly it's excellent for our employees, one thousand of whom have been working very hard, and it's a very proud moment for them to see Psion elevated into the premier league here in London. And finally it's great for our shareholders, both big and small, some of whom have been with the company since the early 1980s." SUPER CAPTION: Anthony Garvey, Psion Computers The downside of the shake-up is that high-tech companies tend to be high-risk. Most of the companies that enter the index have never paid a dividend and some appear to have little immediate prospect of making a profit. But that hasn't dampened the enthusiasm of investment experts: SOUNDBITE: "I think if you look at the days when the canals were built, and then the railways were built, people asked why the railway stocks had such high ratings when at that time it was the canals that were making money. The fact is that at the moment the belief is that these (high-tech) stocks will make a lot of money in the future. They may not be making a lot of money, not all of them may make a lot of money, but the belief is that they will make money." SUPER CAPTION: Hilary Cook, Director of Research, Barclays Stockbrokers Other experts though are warning that the London market could face trouble ahead if the so-called dot-com bubble eventually bursts.

Stock Market Technology: How Is NASDAQ Different from NYSE? (1998)
 
45:26
In 1972, NASDAQ stood for National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotations.[4] NASDAQ was founded in 1971 by the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD),[5] which divested itself of NASDAQ in a series of sales in 2000 and 2001. NASDAQ is owned and operated by the The NASDAQ OMX Group, the stocks of which were listed on its own stock exchange beginning July 2, 2002, under the ticker symbol NDAQ. When the NASDAQ began trading on February 8, 1971, it was the world's first electronic stock market. At first, it was merely a quotation system and did not provide a way to perform electronic trades.[6] The NASDAQ helped lower the spread (the difference between the bid price and the ask price of the stock) but was unpopular among brokerages which made much of their money on the spread. NASDAQ eventually assumed the majority of major trades formerly executed by the over-the-counter (OTC) system of trading, although there are still numerous securities traded in this fashion. As late as 1987, the NASDAQ exchange was still commonly referred to as "OTC" in media and also in the monthly Stock Guides issued by Standard & Poor's Corporation. Over the years, NASDAQ became more of a stock market by adding trade and volume reporting and automated trading systems. NASDAQ was also the first stock market in the United States to start trading online, highlighting NASDAQ-traded companies (usually in technology) and closing with the declaration that NASDAQ is "the stock market for the next hundred years." Its main index is the NASDAQ Composite, which has been published since its inception. However, its exchange-traded fund tracks the large-cap NASDAQ-100 index, which was introduced in 1985 alongside the NASDAQ 100 Financial Index. Until 1987, most trading occurred via the telephone. During the October 1987 stock market crash, however, market makers often did not answer their phones. To remedy this, the Small Order Execution System (SOES) was established. SOES provides an electronic method for dealers to enter their trades. NASDAQ requires market makers to honor trades executed using SOES. In 1992, NASDAQ joined with the London Stock Exchange to form the first intercontinental linkage of securities markets. The National Association of Securities Dealers spun off NASDAQ in 2000 to form a publicly traded company, the NASDAQ Stock Market, Inc. In 2006, the status of NASDAQ was changed from a stock market to a licensed national securities exchange.[7] To qualify for listing on the exchange, a company must be registered with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), must have at least three market makers (financial firms that act as brokers or dealers for specific securities) and must meet minimum requirements for assets, capital, public shares, and shareholders. In February 2011, in the wake of an announced merger of NYSE Euronext with Deutsche Börse, speculation developed that NASDAQ OMX and Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) could mount a counter-bid of their own for NYSE. NASDAQ OMX could be looking to acquire the American exchange's cash equities business, ICE the derivatives business. As of the time of the speculation, "NYSE Euronext’s market value was $9.75 billion. Nasdaq was valued at $5.78 billion, while ICE was valued at $9.45 billion."[8] Late in the month, Nasdaq was reported to be considering asking either ICE or the Chicago Merc to join in what would probably have to be, if it proceeded, an $11–12 billion counterbid.[9] The European Association of Securities Dealers Automatic Quotation System (EASDAQ) was founded originally as a European equivalent to NASDAQ. It was purchased by NASDAQ in 2001 and became NASDAQ Europe. Operations were shut down, however, as a result of the burst of the dot-com bubble. In 2007, NASDAQ Europe was revived as Equiduct, and is currently operating under Börse Berlin.[10] On June 18, 2012, NASDAQ became a founding member of the United Nations Sustainable Stock Exchanges initiative on the eve of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20).[11] In 2013, NASDAQ OMX was approached by private equity firm Carlyle Group about taking the exchange operator private, but the talks fell apart over a disagreement on price. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NASDAQ

Stock Market Mania and the IT Bubble: Finance, Day Trading, 401(k)s and IRAs (2002)
 
57:11
The dot-com bubble (also referred to as the dot-com boom, the Internet bubble, the dot-com collapse, and the information technology bubble) was a historic speculative bubble covering roughly 1997–2000. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0060008814/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0060008814&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=55aea3b5bb84cfd3157098dfcda900da With a climax on March 10, 2000, with the NASDAQ peaking at 5,132.52 in intraday trading before closing at 5,048.62, stock markets in industrialized nations saw their equity value rise rapidly from growth in the Internet sector and related fields. While the latter part was a boom and bust cycle, the Internet boom is sometimes meant to refer to the steady commercial growth of the Internet with the advent of the World Wide Web, as exemplified by the first release of the Mosaic web browser in 1993, and continuing through the 1990s. In financial markets, a stock market bubble is a self-perpetuating rise or boom in the share prices of stocks of a particular industry; the term may be used with certainty only in retrospect after share prices have crashed. A bubble occurs when speculators note the fast increase in value and decide to buy in anticipation of further rises, rather than because the shares are undervalued. Typically, during a bubble, many companies thus become grossly overvalued. When the bubble "bursts", the share prices fall dramatically. The prices of many non-technology stocks increased in tandem and were also pushed up to valuations discorrelated relative to fundamentals. American news media, including respected business publications such as Forbes and the Wall Street Journal, encouraged the public to invest in risky companies, despite many of the companies' disregard for basic financial and even legal principles. Andrew Smith argued that the financial industry's handling of initial public offerings tended to benefit the banks and initial investors rather than the companies. This is because company staff were typically barred from reselling their shares for a lock-in period of 12 to 18 months, and so did not benefit from the common pattern of a huge short-lived share price spike on the day of the launch. In contrast, the financiers and other initial investors were typically entitled to sell at the peak price, and so could immediately profit from short-term price rises. Smith argues that the high profitability of the IPOs to Wall Street was a significant factor the course of events of the bubble. He writes: "But did the kids [the often young dotcom entrepreneurs] dupe the establishment by drawing them into fake companies, or did the establishment dupe the kids by introducing them to Mammon and charging a commission on it?" In spite of this, however, a few company founders made vast fortunes when their companies were bought out at an early stage in the dot-com stock market bubble. These early successes made the bubble even more buoyant. An unprecedented amount of personal investing occurred during the boom, and the press reported the phenomenon of people quitting their jobs to become full-time day traders. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dot-com_bubble

UK/GERMANY: LONDON/FRANKFURT STOCK EXCHANGES MERGER
 
01:44
English/Nat XFA The London and Frankfurt stock exchanges have agreed to merge, the London Stock Exchange announced on Wednesday. The combination creates Europe's largest stock market and a powerful regional counterweight to Wall Street. The London exchange and Germany's Deutsche Boerse would each own 50 percent of the new entity, which is to be called i-X, short for International Exchanges. The Anglo-German merger brings to a climax two years of fitful efforts by the London and Frankfurt exchanges to combine. The headquarters for the new joint German-U-K stock exchange is to be in the city of London where shares in blue chip companies will be traded. Don Cruickshank, chairman-designate of the London Stock Exchange, will be chairman of i-X. The London Stock exchange said shares in high-tech firms would be traded in Frankfurt. The Anglo-German union also includes a formal cooperation agreement with the technology-heavy U-S Nasdaq market. The London exchange did not give specifics on this linkup with Nasdaq but said it did not involve mutual ownership. Stan Adams, Director of Advisory Services for Barclays, says that he hopes other European countries will come on board soon. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I think to begin with we're going to see Germany and the U.K. involved, it'll be very quickly that we'll see France, Spain, Italy and eventually we'll see all the markets of Europe combined into one marketplace so that you'll be able to trade, everybody, all over Europe will be able to trade, all the markets in the one single spot." SUPER CAPTION: Stan Adams, Director of Advisory Services for Barclays Many brokers believe the merger will contribute to market stability. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I think it will add to stability where there's more value and more money in the market and there's a greater number of decent sized companies that we can get access to in the U.K. for individuals. Mainly private clients in the U.K. don't look at European stocks so that will give greater ability for portfolios to track European markets as well." SUPER CAPTION: Matthew West, Stockbroker The merger underscores the growing power of Frankfurt as a financial center rivaling London. While the London exchange has a larger market capitalization, the Frankfurt market is more diversified and profitable. Pressure on Europe's national stock exchanges to consolidate has recently intensified due to the introduction last year of a single European currency, the euro, together with competition from U-S markets and electronic share-trading networks. Last month, stock markets in Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam formed a three-way regional exchange.

Understanding the Derivatives Market: New York Stock Exchange Deutsche Börse Merger (2011)
 
01:22:18
Deutsche Börse AG (German pronunciation: [ˈdɔʏtʃə ˈbœʁzə]) or the Deutsche Börse Group, is a marketplace organizer for the trading of shares and other securities. It is also a transaction services provider. It gives companies and investors access to global capital markets. It is a joint stock company and was founded in 1993. The headquarters are in Frankfurt. As of December 2010, the over 765 companies listed had a combined market capitalization of EUR 1.4 trillion. On 1 October 2014, Deutsche Börse AG became the 14th announced member of the United Nations Sustainable Stock Exchanges initiative. Since 2007 Deutsche Börse operates the joint venture Scoach with SIX Swiss Exchange to provide a European derivative trading platform. In 2001, Deutsche Börse tried to merge with the London Stock Exchange, followed by a takeover bid in late 2004, both rejected by LSE.[4] After CEO Werner Seifert was forced to resign by the main shareholders in 2005, Deutsche Börse changed plans and entered into advanced negotiations for a merger with Euronext which would have brought two of the biggest stock exchanges in Europe into one holding. The New York Stock Exchange beat out Deutsche Börse's final bid for Euronext in 2006. On 7 December 2008, Deutsche Börse rebuffed rumors that it might join with NYSE Euronext (the company formed as a result of the merger of NYSE and Euronext) to create the world's leading stock exchange.[5] While the company claims that it pursued the matter, on 8 December 2008, it reported that talks which began on 25 November 2008, were closed without any result due to differences in valuation of the company.[6] Deutsche Börse had also considered the acquisition again in 2009. On 9 February 2011, reports suggested that NYSE Euronext and Deutsche Börse were in advanced talks about an all-stock merger.[7] Deutsche Börse was in advanced talks to buy NYSE Euronext in a deal that would create the world's largest trading powerhouse. The shares of both companies were temporarily frozen on the news due to the risk of large price movements and clarifications of the deal. A successful deal would see the new company becoming the world's largest stock exchange operator with a market capitalisation of listed companies equal to US$15 trillion, US$13.39 trillion of which is part of the much larger NYSE Euronext, which is approximately six times the size of Deutsche Börse. President and deputy CEO of NYSE Euronext Dominique Cerutti would become the new company's president and head of commercial and internal technology. Roland Bellegarde, also of NYSE Euronext, would become the head of European cash equities. The new company would potentially have 300 million euros (US$410 million) in cost savings. However, the merger would be subject to review in both the United States and European Union under concerns it could create a "de facto monopoly".[8] NYSE Euronext shareholders approved the Deutsche Börse’s all-stock deal on 7 July 2011,[9] and Deutsche Börse shareholders had accepted the deal by 15 July 2011.[10] On 22 December 2011, Deutsche Boerse won U.S. antitrust approval to buy NYSE Euronext, on the condition that a Deutsche Börse subsidiary, the International Securities Exchange, divest its 31.5% interest in Direct Edge.[11] NYSE Euronext and Deutsche Boerse AG delayed the deadline for completing their merger until 31 March 2012, as the exchange operators try to persuade European regulators to approve the deal.[12] The European Commission blocked the merger on 1 February 2012, citing the fact that the merged company would have a near monopoly.[13] This measure taken by the EC is the fourth blocking in over a decade.[14] The commission rejected the merger on antitrust grounds, saying the combined businesses would dominate Europe's on-exchange derivatives trading with an estimated 93% market share. "This is a black day for Europe and its global competitiveness on financial markets", said Deutsche Börse chief executive Reto Francioni. NYSE Euronext chairman Jan-Michiel Hessels said: "While we are disappointed and strongly disagree with the EU decision, which is based on a fundamentally different understanding of the derivatives market, it is now time to move on". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deutsche_B%C3%B6rse

USA: NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE
 
02:07
English/Nat The Nasdaq rose to over 4-thousand on Wednesday - the first time the index has closed above the 4-thousand threshold. Thanks to technology stocks the Nasdaq has made tremendous gains and has made more than a few (m) millionaires out of middle class investors. The Nasdaq, which lists most of the world's leading technology companies, finished above 4-thousand just 38 trading days after its first close above 3-thousand. The Nasdaq has dramatically out performed the Standard & Poor's 500 and the Dow Jones industrials, which set their latest records on the slimmest of gains. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The NASDAQ market this year has enjoyed phenomenal success and great return for investors because it's so heavily weighted toward technology stocks and the Internet stocks." SUPERCAPTION: Barry Hyman, Senior Analyst, Ehrenkrantz, King, Nussbaum Inc Analysts attribute the disparity to the astonishing growth in information technology and the way in which it has become a part of people's everyday lives. SOUNDBITE: (English) "We are indeed in a technology revolution, an Internet revolution that is changing peoples' lives. Most of these stocks are located on the NASDAQ market and investors become overwhelmed with the idea of making tremendous gains and have invested and overweighted their portfolios toward this sector." SUPERCAPTION: Barry Hyman, Senior Analyst, Ehrenkrantz, King, Nussbaum Inc With only 50 percent of stocks actually making money this year the market has relied on very few stocks which have made enormous amounts of money. One such stock is Qualcomm. When a Wall Street analyst speculated that Qualcomm could reach 1-thousand dollars a share within 12 months, the stock rose more than 100 points. It's this kind of return that is turning investors into speculators. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Investors are overwhelmed. They are overjoyed. 80 percent plus returns on an index? That means that the individual stocks, the best performing stocks are up dramatically even more than that. And most people if they look at their portfolios if they own anything in technology can pin point to some stock in their portfolio that is up 500 to a 1000 percent." SUPERCAPTION: Barry Hyman, Senior Analyst, Ehrenkrantz, King, Nussbaum Inc Year end buying sprees, also known as window-dressing, has helped the Nasdaq set 14 new closing records since the beginning of December, largely on the strength of its biggest stocks. SOUNDBITE: (English) "It's a wonderful time for the investor. The investor has made a lot of money. The wealth effect has driven a lot of other types of asset classes to do well. Real estate is doing extremely well. People can afford more. It's been a great Christmas season. Retail sales did extremely well and you can really attribute that all to the great stock market that we've had this year." SUPERCAPTION: Barry Hyman, Senior Analyst, Ehrenkrantz, King, Nussbaum Inc The Nasdaq has hovered near or above 4-thousand since last week but had failed to close on top of the mark until Wednesday.

UK: LONDON:  REVIEW OF WORLD STOCK MARKET FALLS
 
02:23
English/Nat Most European stocks fell on Monday, but losses were curtailed after signs of a rally in U-S markets alleviated fears that Friday's tumble was the start of a prolonged market slide. The Dow Jones Stoxx Index of shares in European companies fell 5.8 points, or 1.6 per cent, to close at 368.24, while pan-European technology index Easdaq was down 8.6 per cent, both higher than their day's lows. New York's main indexes were in positive territory after a shaky start, with the technology-heavy Nasdaq up 2.3 per cent. Trading in London brought encouraging signs that Friday's plunge in market prices in the United States and Asia may not lead to a prolonged global slide. But some observers warned that Monday's rally in the U-S, though appearing to lead to a settling of the markets, could be fragile. SOUNDBITE: (English) "It's been a rather exhausting day as you might have seen from some of the interim reports. What happened was, we watched on Friday a close here which was down, it continued in New York, it caught up in Asia, and we caught up to London and Asia in the London time. Then we spent the middle of the day waiting to see what was going to happen again in New York, and pretty much as anticipated things have settled down again. As we speak, New York is up a touch, both the Dow and the Nasdaq, and it appears it's going to settle in a bit from here." SUPER CAPTION: Tom Sherridan, Managing Director, Barclays Stockbrokers The Dow Jones Euro Stoxx Index, which tracks companies in countries that joined the single European currency, ended down 3.51 points on Monday at 414.82. The Dow Jones Euro Stoxx 50 Index was down 51 points at 4,983.2 and the Dow Jones Stoxx 50 Index down 57.5 points at 4,736.3. London's FTSE-100 Share Index fell 183.5 points, or three per cent, to close at 5-thousand-994.6. But some are predicting that markets could drop further as economic factors are taken into account. High-tech stock valuations remain very strong, and inflation may become a key factor as it leads to rising interest rates. SOUNDBITE: (English) "What I expect in the near term is things to get a bit quieter from here, and as things get a bit quieter of course, any move could be exaggerated. So we'll continue over the next couple of weeks to see some volatility in the market . What's been introduced is two themes that we've been talking about all day long: one is how do you price the technology stocks, and two is oh my goodness inflation might actually come back into the picture. Those are the two events of the day." SUPER CAPTION: Tom Sherridan, Managing Director, Barclays Stockbrokers Elsewhere in Europe, Frankfurt's Xetra DAX Index recovered from early losses to close just 0.4 per cent lower than Friday. Shares in Siemens rose 5.1 per cent, while shares in Deutsche Telekom rose 1.4 per cent. In Paris, the CAC-40 Index was down 0.1 per cent, with Equant and STMicroelectronics nudging into positive territory by the close, while Milan's MIBtel Index was down 1.8 per cent and Amsterdam's AEX Index down 1.9 per cent.

Versarien: developing material technology to go from pre-revenue to £5 million in 3 years
 
02:41
A materials business supported by Innovate UK has moved in a few years from a garage start-up to become one of the UK’s fastest-growing companies. Versarien was founded at the end of 2010 to commercialise an innovative process for making metallic foams developed at the University of Liverpool. In the very early stages it won an Innovate UK grant to help it develop its technology. Since those early days, Versarien has worked on a number of further Innovate UK supported projects. It has resulted in rapid growth – from 2 people working out of a garage to a £5m business working on 4 sites and with a listing on the London stock exchange. Neil Ricketts, founder and chief executive, said: "If we had not got that first grant, there is no way we would have been able to pursue that market or create jobs. It took the risk out for our shareholders and created a huge amount of validation. It said that we had something very good." The business, based in Gloucestershire, specialises in commercialising advanced materials technologies and is now working with metal foams, graphene and extruded aluminium. It is targeting £6 billion global markets and expects to continue to grow. It works closely with a number of universities, providing support and sponsorship to university departments and students and gaining access to some of the new materials technologies that are being developed.

How To Use Bloomberg
 
11:25
Free £10,000 Online Trading Demo Platform: https://www.accendomarkets.com/online-trading/ We’re going to look at the Bloomberg Terminal https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bloomberg_Terminal Bloomberg provides financial software tools such as analytics, data services and news to all manner of companies and organisations the world over via the Bloomberg Terminal, which is what we’re looking at now. The Bloomberg terminal is a virtually bottomless pit of information covering a wide range of financial products. Accendo Markets uses it mainly for UK listed equities, and so we’re going to have look at the most important functions in that arena. So first of all we’ll search for a company in the top left hand corner, here. If you know the ticker symbol you can type that in, but remember that sometimes different information providers use slightly different tickers. Unless you’re sure what the BBG ticker is, it’s better to type the company name. Let’s use Barclays as an example, so I’ll start typing Barclays into the search box. Usually a dropdown menu then appears with all the terms that contain Barclays. We need to select BARC LN EQUITY which is Barclays’ UK listing. In fact any UK listed stock will be displayed in this way, so once you’re familiar with the ticker symbols you can simply enter BARC LN EQUITY and it’ll take you directly to the analysis menu. Now there are a lot of options here, but we’ll go through the 3 most used and see how you can share all of this information with colleagues. Those are: Security Description, Company News, Analyst Recommendations. Then I’ll go through how to export / share this information with your colleagues. Security description: General overview of the stock with a brief description, a chart, share price, performance since prior day’s close, 52wk hi, 52wk lo, YTD change. Company news: For most up to date news stories on the stock. Also, the day before a company reports results, an earnings preview will appear in the news feed here. Analyst recommendations: To find out how the brokers are rating the stock you’re interested in – consensus rating, average 12-mnth target price, details. Risk Warnings: Between 74-89% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs. You should consider whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.

UK: LONDON/FRANKFURT STOCK EXCHANGES MERGER (2)
 
04:12
English/Nat The London and Frankfurt stock exchanges announced on Wednesday that they will merge, creating Europe's largest stock market and a powerful regional counterweight to Wall Street. The London exchange and Germany's Deutsche Boerse will each own 50 percent of the new entity, which is to be called i-X, which stands for International Exchanges. The merger is to be completed by mid-2001 and the headquarters are to be in London. Under the merger agreement, shares in blue-chip companies will be traded in London, while shares in high-tech firms will be traded in Frankfurt. Don Cruickshank, chairman-designate of the London Stock Exchange, will be chairman of i-X. He said on Wednesday that the Frankfurt-London merger is the precursor to a pan-European stock exchange. The Anglo-German union includes a joint venture agreement with Nasdaq Europe Ltd, the European subsidiary of the technology-heavy U-S Nasdaq market, to create a European market for high-growth stocks. The London-Frankfurt agreement is subject to approval by British and German regulators, and by stockholders. London and Frankfurt have been holding link-up talks since 1998. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I-X will be the leading exchange in Europe. Its the major first step towards an integrated Pan European Market and i-X will be operating as a fully integrated commercial organisation." SUPER CAPTION: Don Cruickshank, Chairman-Designate of the London Stock Exchange and future chairman of i-X SOUNDBITE: (English) "We came to the conclusion that the way to achieve the benefits that the users want to see is by a total merger of our interests, to create a bigger, European stock market, with greater liquidity, better price formation, lower costs to the users and to eliminate overlaps between our businesses." SUPER CAPTION: Gavin Casey, current chief executive of the London Stock Exchange SOUNDBITE: (English) "London has earned big credentials with its successful information services. We are happy to contribute our technology and internet competence so i-X will be a leader in technology" SUPER CAPTION: Werner Seifert, head of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and future i-X Chief executive SOUNDBITE: (English) "It's good for everybody. It's a win-win situation. For the investor, this transaction means greater liquidity, more transparency and fairer prices combined with a potential and most probable decrease of total costs for the investor." SUPER CAPTION: Rolf E. Breuer, Chairman Deutche Bourse SOUNDBITE: (English) "I think to begin with we're going to see Germany and the U.K. involved, it'll be very quickly that we'll see France, Spain, Italy and eventually we'll see all the markets of Europe combined into one marketplace so that you'll be able to trade, everybody, all over Europe will be able to trade, all the markets in the one single spot." SUPER CAPTION: Stan Adams, Director of Advisory Services for Barclays SOUNDBITE: (English) "I think it will add to stability where there's more value and more money in the market and there's a greater number of decent sized companies that we can get access to in the U.K. for individuals. Mainly private clients in the U.K. don't look at European stocks so that will give greater ability for portfolios to track European markets as well."

Small Company Celebration – London’s AIM Turns 20
 
03:28
The London Stock Exchange’s Alternative Investment Market – home to small growth companies – celebrated its 20th anniversary this week. David Battersby, investment manager at Redmayne-Bentley, said one of AIM’s biggest achievements is its ability to draw in large amounts of money, providing opportunities for the companies to grow. ‘When it started twenty years ago, you have to bear in mind, none of the companies then are actually still there now,’ said Battersby. ‘Many of them have actually moved on to the main list and certainly as the Alternative Investment Market has grown, it’s regulation has been considered worthy enough for many large companies to consider staying on AIM.’ Battersby said one of the great advantages of the Alternative Investment Market is tax incentives. Companies that are part of the Alternative Investment Market are traded on the London Stock Exchange, but not listed on the exchange. According to the London Stock Exchange website, AIM is ‘the world’s most successful growth market.’ Since its launch in 1995, over 3,600 companies from around the world have chosen to join AIM.

US: Market Wrap 2: stock markets latest
 
02:44
English/Nat The prospect of the economic slowdown spreading around the globe shook Wall Street Wednesday, sending the Dow Jones Industrial Average below 10,000 and setting the blue chip index up for its worst week in more than 13 years. The drop followed a nose dive in prices in Europe and Japan as investors simply had no reason to buy. The fears on U.S. markets matched those on exchanges in Europe and Asia - that slowing economies will continue to hurt corporate profits and, in turn, stock prices. While sellers have dominated the U.S. stock market recently, believing that poor earnings and the weakening economy in the U.S. won't recover in the near future, the prospect of economic crises in other countries, especially Japan, unnerved investors around the globe. The Dow dove as much as 395 points to the 9,895 level, before closing down 317.34 points at 9973.46. It was the first time since Oct. 20 that the blue chips have even traded below 10,000. The losses easily wiped out Tuesday's 82-point advance and compounded Monday's 436-point drop. Already down about 6.5 percent this week, the Dow is poised to have its worst week in terms of a percentage decline since 1987, when it fell 7.5 percent the week of Dec. 4. Broader market indicators also skidded. The Nasdaq composite fell 42.71 to close at 1972.07. The decline began as soon as the market opened with the Dow quickly losing more than 300 points in a matter of minutes. The newest big fear on Wall Street is that Japan's economic problems will cut into demand in that country for U.S. goods and services - leading to a further drop in American stock prices. U.S. financial stocks suffered after 19 Japanese banks were placed on "negative watch" by an international rating agency. Uncertain how exposed American banks are to Japan's crisis, investors drove J.P. Morgan Chase down $3.58 to $43.82, and Citibank down $3.22 to $45.17. Both are Dow components. Some technology companies, which have suffered the most from the U.S. economic slowdown, already have said business has suffered declining demand abroad, particularly in Asia. Meantime, the U.S. government's top economic policy-makers have remained mostly silent as Wall Street underwent one of the most stomach-churning weeks. The Federal Reserve has disappointed investors by not cutting interest rates more quickly and while President George W. Bush remained focused on touting his tax cut. With critics contending that Bush's heavy emphasis on the economy's weakness has become a self-fullfilling prophecy, the president struck more of an upbeat note on Wednesday about future prospects. "I'm concerned that a lot of American's portfolios have been affected," Bush told reporters when asked for his reaction to the market's slide. "But I've got great faith in our economy," he said during a trip to promote his faith-based initiatives at a church in New Jersey. "I believe the plans we're putting in place by working with the Congress are going to serve as a second wind for economic growth." SOUNDBITE: (English) "Interestingly today, the Dow is down more than the Nasdaq, I think because people are feeling that the slowdown in technology is spilling over into a slowdown in the entire economy. Whether that's the case or not, it's in peoples' minds, and psychology is tremendously negative right now. And that's the problem, and Fed Chairman Allen Greenspan is not doing anything to allay those fears and to boost consumer confidence at the moment."

Economists say existing homeowners are staying put longer due to economic uncertainty and this is creating a supply shortage, which in turn keeps prices high and lowers sales. On Tuesday, Fed Chair Janet Yellen testified before the Senate Banking Committee and said the magic words: no rate hike is expected for the next couple of Fed meetings. This led to modest rallies. Consumer confidence for February fell more than expected, to 96.4, compared to 102.9 in January. On Wednesday, new home sales for January were better than expected at 481,000 units, only dropping very slightly from the previous month. Oil futures increased slightly to $51 a barrel. Markets didn’t do much, although they hovered close to record highs. On Thursday, the consumer price index for January showed a month to month decline of .7%, thanks to a decline in energy. Durable goods for January were up 2.8% month to month after declining 3.7% in the prior month. Jobless claims for the week ending February 21st were unexpectedly high at 313,000, up 31,000. On Friday, the revised fourth quarter GDP came in at 2.2%, down from the original estimated 2.6%. Also released was pending home sales for existing homes in January. The index rose 1.7% month to month, and it is now 8.4% higher than the year ago. Markets were relatively unchanged on the news. Now let’s take a look at some stocks. Aruba Networks, Inc. shares soared over 20% after trading hours Wednesday when rumors surfaced that the technology company is in talks to get acquired by Hewlett-Packard. If in fact, these two companies combine, Cisco Systems would face major competition in the wireless equipment sector. Sears Holdings Corporation’s stock plummeted more than 6% on Thursday after reporting its fourth straight year of decreasing earnings. The retailer has taken numerous preventative measure including cost cutting and store closures, but this has not been good enough to reverse the downward trend. For the period ended January 31st, Sears lost $150 million or $1.50 per share while revenues decreased to $8.1 billion from $10.6 billion. DryShips, Inc. reported weak fourth quarter earnings, with a $24 million net loss or $.04 per share, slightly better than the year-ago loss of $24.4 million or $.06 per share. Net income was reported at only $0.02 per share, missing forecasts of $0.05 per share. The company’s stock was down just over 3% on Thursday. CollabRx, Inc. shares plummeted more than 34% Thursday after the healthcare technology company priced a public offering of 2.4 million shares of common stock at $1.27 per share. This would be the second public offering by CollabRx within a week; the previous offering was priced at $1.25 per share for 3.8 million shares.

USA: NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE LATEST
 
02:46
English/Nat XFA The New York stock exchange had a volatile session on Wednesday amid persistent concerns about rising oil prices and corporate profits. Blue chips fell sharply while technology issues moved higher. The Dow Jones industrial average traded down 75.84 at 10,713.45 in late trading after dropping nearly 220 points earlier in the session. But the high-tech focused Nasdaq composite index was up 34.93 at 3,900.57 after being down most of the day. And the Standard & Poor's 500 was off 7.57 after 1,452.33, but was also up from its lows of the day. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Well I guess the bottom line is that for most markets around the world including ours there's a good case to be made that the summer rally is over. We had a pretty good run from June until late August, early September - during that the markets became fairly overbought." SUPER CAPTION: Walter Murphy, Merrill Lynch The stock market has been down for most of September, dogged by worries about corporate profits as the economy shows increasing signs that it is slowing. But the markets on Wednesday were more erratic than usual, with all the major indexes recording significant swings. Oil, which is trading at decade-high levels, is one of the reasons for the swings, according to analysts. A barrel of light sweet crude traded at $37.50 Wednesday on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Analysts remain unconvinced that OPEC's promise to increase production by 800,000 barrels a day will relieve prices anytime soon, and some traders believe the price could reach dollars 40 a barrel. OPEC blames refining bottlenecks, high taxes in consumer nations and speculation for the price spike. While heating oil inventories remain extremely low, the API reported that distillate fuel inventories, which include heating oil, rose by 1.25 million barrels in the past week to 116.25 million barrels from 115 million barrels. That's still nearly 20 percent less distillate fuel on U.S. shores from a year ago. OPEC has increased production three times this year in a failed effort to cool crude prices. Stocks were down in all sectors. Coca-Cola was down $4.29 to $49.94. Pepsi fell $1.95 to $41.94. Investors again shunned stocks whose companies warned of unfavorable profits. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The world wants a lot of oil, and supplies are very, very tight. There's not a lot of inventory around, so I think at this point, these higher prices are going to be maintained for the near term." SUPER CAPTION: Scott Hess, Oil Trader, G & H Commodities On the Big Board, specialty chemicals company Polyone fell $1.63 to $7.31, a nearly 19 percent drop, after it warned of lower profits because of higher energy costs and softening demand. Sprint fell $7.31 to $33.50, an 18 percent drop, after the telecommunications company said earnings will be lower than expected. Even energy-related stocks, which tend to do well when oil prices are rising, dragged. Halliburton declined $1.563 to $49. Baker Hughes fell 63 cents to $35.50. On the Nasdaq, online financial news provider the street.com tumbled $1.13 to $5, an 18 percent drop, after saying its profits would not meet expectations. SOUNDBITE: (English) "There's talk about a potential interruption related to the U-N vote about a reparations fund for Kuwait, and Iraq oil exports are about 2.4 (m) million barrels a day. If that were to disappear for any period of time, it would exhaust all of the rest of capacity by the OPEC countries, and frankly would push prices well above what anyone thinks they can touch in the near term. So, the system is just very very tight, and there's absolutely no room for anything to go wrong."

USA: NEW YORK: NASDAQ STOCK MARKET LATEST
 
01:13
English/Nat The Nasdaq stock market climbed to an all time high on Thursday, breaking the five-thousand point barrier for the first time. The new record has helped cement its reputation as the top-performing and fastest-growing barometer of the entire U-S stock market. It took just over two months for the technology driven index to breach its latest 1,000-point milestone, rising 149.60 points on Thursday to close at 5,046.86. Rising technology stocks have helped to drive the Nasdaq composite to its first-ever close over the five-thousand mark. The technology-laden index rose 149 points to close trading at 5046. The Nasdaq's velocity is unmatched - it took the Dow nearly nine months to rise from 4,000 to 5,000 in 1995. Blue chips also posted gains, continuing to recover from Tuesday's big sell-off. The Dow Jones industrial average gained 154 points to end at 10,010. The S-and-P 500 also gained ground, up 35 points to close at 1401. However, some analysts say a correction in the markets is just around the bend. SOUNDBITE: (English) "We think that the correction forces are still with us, that any such rally will give way to a second leg down that could carry the Dow down to the 9300 or the 9400 area, or lower. And in that kind of an environment, we may see some new kinds of pressures in the Nasdaq, especially if that starts to go below 4500 or 4600 over the short term." SUPER CAPTION: Walter Murphy, Senior Global Markets Analyst, Merrill Lynch It started 29 years ago as a way measure the progress of fledgling companies too small or weak for the prestigious New York Stock Exchange. The shining performance of the Nasdaq has provided the only real light for investors this year. The market is constantly expanding with new stocks that tap into investor obsession with anything having to do with computers, telecommunications, biotechnology and, of course, the Internet. These stocks have come symbolise the "new economy." Investors have embraced technology stocks as the companies most likely to succeed if the Federal Reserve continues raising interest rates to cool the fast-growing economy and prevent inflation. That's a dramatic change from last year, when many investors feared that younger tech companies would be crippled by higher interest rates.

T/I: 10:45:59 The Tel-Aviv Stock Exchange (TASE) was swamped by pre-opening sell orders on Sunday (26/10) which traders said indicated declines of three to six percent for the day. The surge of sell orders was in response to the worldwide fall in share prices last week and particularly the drop in technology shares on Wall Street on Friday.

JAPAN: TOKYO: STOCK EXCHANGE SHARE PRICES LATEST
 
01:30
English/Nat Tokyo share prices shed much of their early gains on Monday after investors decided to take advantage of quick profits. The benchmark Nikkei Stock Average lost 4.74 points, or 0.03 percent, closing the day at 16,918.51. On Friday, the average rose 257.37 points, or 1.54 percent. Japanese stocks rose on Monday morning, led by electronics stocks. That buying followed a string of strong earnings results released last week by technology companies in the United States. But despite the early market surge, the Nikkei Stock Average closed down at the end of the day, retreating below the 17-thousand mark. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I think 17-thousand is going to continue to be a major psychological barrier and breaking through that. Once you break through that significantly the market can rise again to say 19-thousand. Sixteen-thousand, 17-thousand for some reason is very difficult. There are a lot of cross holdings that tend to get sold at that level, a lot of individual investors who bought N-T-T stocks at the 1994, 1995 level who are looking to sell." SUPER CAPTION: Garry Evans, Chief Strategist, HSBC Japan In currency trading, the dollar slipped against the yen in subdued trading. Dealers said they were awaiting the opening of the G-7 meeting. The dollar bought 118.81 yen in late morning, down 0.77 yen from late on Friday in Tokyo and also below its late New York level of 119.41 yen.

How do you find shares worth looking at? Lucian Miers, a renowned short seller comments. How do you find shares that are going to go down and make you money? PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE so we can bring you more! I like cashflow, dividends - I don't look at momentum - I don't understand technology stocks either. I like dividend payers and boring companies. About shorts I have a network of friends and people I respect - you get to know which are the ones to listen to - I know they have good track records. Without giving away trade secrets, are there any telltale signs that people should look out for, either if they are long and have got great hopes in a company, or want to go short? I think its always useful to go back and see what the company has said over the last 2 or 3 years. Just read about what they promised to do.

Alan Greenspan: Tokyo Stock Market & the U.S. Economy (1992)
 
02:09:02
The Tokyo Stock Exchange reopened under its current Japanese name on May 16, 1949, pursuant to the new Securities Exchange Act. The TSE runup from 1983 to 1990 was unprecedented, in 1990 it accounted for over 60% of the world's stock market capitalization (by far the world's largest) before falling precipitously in value and rankings today, but still remains one of the 3 largest exchanges in the world by market capitalization of listed shares. The current TSE building was opened on May 23, 1988, replacing the original TSE building from 1931, and the trading floor of the TSE was closed on April 30, 1999, so that the exchange could switch to electronic trading for all transactions. A new facility, called TSE Arrows (ja:東証アローズ Tōshō Arrows?), opened on May 9, 2000. In 2010, the TSE launched its Arrowhead trading facility. [7] In 2001, the TSE restructured itself as a stock company: before this time, it was structured as an incorporated association (ja:社団法人 shadan hōjin?) with its members as shareholders. The exchange was only able to operate for 90 minutes on November 1, 2005, due to bugs with a newly installed transactions system, developed by Fujitsu, which was supposed to help cope with higher trading volumes. The interruption in trading was the worst in the history of the exchange.[8] Trading was suspended for four-and-a-half hours. During the initial public offering of advertising giant Dentsu, in December 2001, a trader at UBS Warburg, the Swiss investment bank, sent an order to sell 610,000 shares in this company at ¥1 each, while he intended to sell 1 share at ¥610,000. The bank lost £71 million.[9] During yet another initial public offering, that of J-Com, on December 8, 2005, an employee at Mizuho Securities Co., Ltd. mistakenly typed an order to sell 600,000 shares at ¥1, instead of an order to sell 1 share at ¥600,000. Mizuho failed to catch the error; the Tokyo Stock Exchange initially blocked attempts to cancel the order, resulting in a net loss of US$347 million to be shared between the exchange and Mizuho. Both companies are now trying to deal with their troubles: lack of error checking, lack of safeguards, lack of reliability, lack of transparency, lack of testing, loss of confidence, and loss of profits. On 11 December, the TSE acknowledged that its system was at fault in the Mizuho trade. On 21 December, Takuo Tsurushima, chief executive of the TSE, and two other senior executives resigned over the Mizuho affair.[8][10][11][12][13][14][15][16] On January 17, 2006, the Nikkei 225 fell 2.8%, its fastest drop in nine months, as investors sold stocks across the board in the wake of a raid by prosecutors on internet company livedoor. The Tokyo Stock Exchange closed early on January 18 due to the trade volume threatening to exceed the exchange's computer system's capacity of 4.5 million trades per day. This was called the "livedoor shock". The exchange quickly increased its order capacity to five million trades a day. The exchange's normal trading sessions are from 09:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and from 12:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. on all days of the week except Saturdays, Sundays and holidays declared by the Exchange in advance.[18] The exchange is closed for the following holidays: New Year's Day, Coming of Age Day, National Foundation Day, Vernal Equinox Day, Shōwa Day, Constitution Memorial Day, Greenery Day, Children's Day, Marine Day, Respect for the Aged Day, Autumnal Equinox, Health and Sports Day, Culture Day, Labour Thanksgiving Day, and The Emperor's Birthday. The London Stock Exchange (LSE) and the TSE are developing jointly traded products and share technology, marking the latest cross-border deal among bourses as international competition heats up. The TSE is also looking for some partners in Asia, and more specifically is seeking an alliance with the Singapore Exchange (SGX), which is considered as becoming a leading financial hub in the Asia-Pacific region. Recently[when?], some rumors close to the deal suggest that the TSE is preparing for a takeover of the SGX, or at least take a major stake, in the first semester of 2008. The TSE has already acquired a 5% stake in the SGX as of June 2007, deemed to be only the beginning of greater participation. In July 2008 the London Stock Exchange (LSE) and the TSE announced a new joint venture Tokyo-based market, which will be based on the LSE's Alternative Investment Market (AIM). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tokyo_Stock_Exchange

European Entertainment Stocks Fall as Greek Crisis Hits Markets
 
00:53
The stocks of big European entertainment companies fell in early Monday trading as the continuing Greek debt crisis hit stock markets across the continent. A series of weekend developments pushed the country closer to a possible exit from the euro zone after the failure of bailout talks, affecting markets, observers said. The pan-European Stoxx Europe 600 index was down 2.3 percent around 9 a.m. London time, with Spain’s IBEX 35 and Italy’s FTSE MIB down more than 3.5 percent along with a major index in Portugal.

Various of rates on electronic screens STORYLINE: Asian stocks sank on Thursday after Japan announced that exports had fallen for the fifth straight month in July and weak forecasts in the US fed fears of a second recession. Japan''s benchmark Nikkei 225 fell 0.4 percent to 9,019.52 after the finance ministry said exports fell 3.3 percent from a year earlier to 5.78 trillion yen (75.6 (b) billion dollars). The downturn was largely due to the strengthening yen and the ongoing impact of the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. Hong Kong opened slightly lower with the benchmark Hang Seng Index went down 0.13 percent, or 27.82 points, to open at 20,261.21 at 0130GMT. The measures announced by China''s vice premier Li Keqiang during his visit to Hong Kong from 16 August to 18 August boosted the stock market on Wednesday but the short term investors were taking profit on Thursday, said Francis Lun, Managing Director of Lyncean Holdings. "Short-term investors are taking profits, so the market needs to consolidate at the 20,000 level before advancing further," he said. By 0315GMT, after one hour and forty five minutes of trading, the market was down 0.05 percent, or 11.00 points, to 20,278.03. On Wednesday Wall Street stocks posted modest gains after companies reported higher earnings. But economic growth is weak around the world, and some economists worry that a second recession may be coming. While Dell Inc. reported earnings for last quarter that were above expectations, it cut its prediction for revenue growth this year. Technology stocks on the S&P 500 fell 0.8 percent after Dell cut its forecast. Taipei''s main index also opened lower on Thursday from its previous close, moving down 46.74 points at 7,695.02 on turnover of NT$3.085 billion (106.38 (m) million dollars). "Dell has issued its financial reports and this would have an impact on shares of Taiwan''s electronic companies," said Chien Boryi, an analyst at Cathay Securities Corporation. South Korea''s benchmark Kospi index lost 1.1 percent to 1,871.29. Australia''s S&P/ASX 200 index fell 0.8 percent to 4,271.50. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 4.28 points to 11,410.21. The S&P 500 rose 0.1 percent to 1,193.89. The Nasdaq composite fell 0.5 percent to 2,511.48.

Hadoop and Healthcare - David Richards
 
04:51
From Strata + Hadoop World 2015 in London: We are at a pivotal moment in the history of healthcare. Information is now available on almost everything that determines our health, which in turn can be translated into better, more effective and more efficient care. Our healthcare system should be a digital pioneer, using data to provide better outcomes for the taxpayer and patients through improved and streamlined care. The huge amount of data currently stored by the NHS represents an enormous untapped resource, when considering how our healthcare system can be made more effective. By centralizing these records and mining the information, crucial insights will be found into how resources can be allocated as efficiently as possible, and where the gaps in healthcare provision are to be found. It is in all of our interests to embrace big data; however, the benefits of such a project have not been fully communicated to the public. More needs to be done to mitigate the fears and concerns of those worried about the use of our data and explain the life-enhancing benefits of data-driven healthcare. One hospital in California has utilized Hadoop technology to build predictive models and algorithms that monitor trends to intercept and avert infections, and monitor patient recovery for complications, drastically improving the level of care provided for patients. Doctors are informed immediately when patients’ vitals cross a key threshold, enabling round-the-clock observation of large numbers of patients. The hospitals of the future are very much within reach, and here in the UK we should be leading the way. Big data can also be utilized to get to grips with the outbreak of an epidemic, enabling humanitarian agencies to determine where a disease is going to spread to next and therefore allocate resources in a target way to bring the outbreak under control. Real-time multi-center ingest collating unstructured data from a diverse array of sources offers unprecedented insights into how and where best to respond, and where precious resources would have the biggest impact.
