Reuters has rolled out a service to monitor the performance of trading applications at investment companies to help them ensure they receive market data as fast as possible.

The Reuters Latency Monitor (RLM) will alert trading companies to the time it is taking for market data to reach their systems. This is essential for trading companies that use algorithmic trading applications to automatically trade when the market conditions are right.

Terry Roche, executive vice-resident and head of strategic business at reuters, said, "Reuters customers need to know that their trading applications are getting data at the high speeds they need to trade effectively. If this speed falls for any reason, RLM will alert users instantaneously so that they can adjust their trading method immediately. Reuters Latency Monitor will give them the vital insight they need on the speed at which data is reaching them on a second-to-second basis."
