What Is AlphaStream’s Secret Source? 

What is AlphaStream’s secret source? 

AlphaStream wants to make the financial markets data more effective by personalizing it for every client. Find out why we no longer consider ourselves a data provider. 

AlphaStream is often confused with more traditional financial news and social content providers because we have provided feeds and alerts to certain clients in the past. However 2020 has been a year of reflection and change for many people and we were no different, so we adjusted our proposition to focus on what we are passionate about and what we think makes the most difference to our customers and their clients – personalization.

There is a huge amount of specialist data providers that exist, and they generally provide excellent data sources, particularly in the financial markets. AlphaStream is capable of ingesting all of these data sources and converting all of this information into a single personalized version for each client that is based on how that client consumes information and executes trades.  

The AlphaStream experience platform is capable of ingesting most types of financial market data that relates to all of the asset classes. These include; 

Type of dataAsset Class
  • Alternative
  • News wires
  • Twitter
  • Economic
  • Geo-Political
  • Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG)
  • Estimates Events and Transcripts
  • Fundamentals
  • Index
  • News
  • Ownership
  • Ratings
  • Reference
  • Risk
  • Satellite
  • Supply Chain
  • Equities 
  • Foreign Exchange 
  • Commodities 
  • Indices
  • Crypto Currencies  


When creating a personalized news and social feed for an online brokerage for example AlphaStream will ingest a financial news source such as a Dow Jones or Dataminr financial news feed and deconstruct it into its raw parts, identifying entities, topics, contributors, products, people and places and grouping and enriching it ready for distribution to a specific client ID on a specific channel. All of this is done in real-time. 

By providing personalized financial market content within the trading experience you can more than double average trading volumes for engaged traders. 

By ingesting and processing a 3rd party feed we can begin to identify important market events that might be occurring within the data and monitor it to see how it develops from a story into a market event that can affect the price of a stock or other instruments. You can see more information on how we process data events here. A great example of how we processed an Elon Musk tweet and distributed it to clients on the most effective channels can be seen in this case study here. 

The more information that the platform ingests that more capable it is of developing an effective personalized version of the financial markets for your clients. This ultimately is our goal to provide more engaged clients who perform better and are more valuable for you.
