CHICAGO, Ill. — The Chicago Board of Trade and Dow Jones Newswires, a source of news and information for financial professionals, announced on Oct. 5 the launch of a Chinese translation of the Commodity News for Tomorrow newsletter.
The Chinese version of the newsletter offers the same content as the English language version, including the latest market data from the CBOT as well as market recaps and feature stories from Dow Jones Newswires.
The newsletter also provides additional coverage of market prices of commodity contracts traded at the CBOT.
Commodity News for Tomorrow serves as a review of the day’s trading activity, covering developing stories and offering a preview of what to expect the following day. The newsletter is e-mailed to subscribers every afternoon – after the Exchange’s open outcry markets close for the day.
“The original Commodity News for Tomorrow newsletter has developed a significant following, currently more than 10,000 subscribers,” said Steve Dickey, CBOT vice president of market data products. “With market participation in Asia continuing to grow – underscored by the recent launch of the Joint Asian Derivatives Exchange – it has become more important than ever for the Exchange to provide participants with the information they need to prepare for their trading day. This newsletter will deliver that information to Asian participants in a concise format.”
Dow Jones editors select news and features for the newsletter, and Xinhuaonline Information and Technology Co., a China-based partner of Dow Jones and Co, translate it into Chinese.
The newsletter focuses on events that impact the futures industry – it includes market recaps of activity in CBOT markets such as corn, ethanol, soybeans, wheat and metals.
“We’re proud to work with the CBOT to reach market participants in Asia with the Chinese version of Commodities News for Tomorrow,” said John Hitchcock, managing director, commodities and energy, Dow Jones Newswires.
“This new publication is the latest example of Dow Jones Newswires’ commitment to deliver market-leading news and information to customers around the globe.”
