Dow Jones rolls out new service that will focus on markets

September 22, 2008

Dow Jones & Co. announced Monday that it is introducing a new service called Dow Jones Global Markets News that will focus on companies, markets — equities, debt, currencies, energy and commodities — and the events that affect trades, portfolios and deals.

“With Dow Jones Global Markets News, equity-market participants will also receive information critical to trading, holdings and their deal pipelines from Dow Jones’s stable of publications including The Wall Street Journal, Barron’s and the Far Eastern Economic Review,” said said Clare Hart, executive vice president of Dow Jones, in a statement.  “So, for example, when The Wall Street Journal has a scoop, Dow Jones subscribers will be the first to see it. That’s hard to beat.”

Dow Jones Global Markets News will also provide commentary and analysis, including:

  • Heard On The Street — recently enhanced, this venerable Wall Street Journal column has been a staple in every business executive’s daily diet since the 1960s;
  • DJ Market Talk — streaming market comment on all asset classes from traders and insiders around the globe;
  • Money Talks — a focus on economics, markets and policy;
  • Big Picture — perspectives on economics trends;
  • Charting Money — technical analysis on the day’s most interesting financial instruments.

Neal Lipschutz“Dow Jones Global Markets News will rapidly and accurately deliver indispensable news and analysis to our globally focused equity market customers,” said Neal Lipschutz, senior vice president and managing editor, Dow Jones Newswires, in a statement. “Dow Jones Global Markets News helps them gain perspective and see the connections between the world’s equities markets and developments in other asset classes.â€?

The service will include access to its companion website, Dow Jones NewsPlus-Global Markets, designed to provide institutional equity market participants with a snapshot of current financial news, information, columns and commentary. Subscribers will also receive Dow Jones Global Markets Briefing, a daily newsletter that summarizes the top market-moving stories and provides a preview of what’s on the horizon.
