Spot trading opportunities on Twitter with our UK Election SmartTracks

It seems a week doesn’t go by without something major happening in the world of politics, and last week Prime Minister Theresa May surprised many by calling for a snap general election on June 8. 

Unsurprising, the markets reacted to this news. The pound plunged prior to the Prime Minister's speech, but later rebounded, and the FTSE 100, London’s Blue Chip Index, was effected as a result. 

Following the announcement, we've created new Curated and Collection SmartTracks in EarlyBird for helping professional traders and analysts stay on top of financially relevant UK election news, opinion and commentary on Twitter.

Bringing you key Tweets from the most influential politicians, commentators and pollsters in UK politics, these SmartTracks can help you make the most of every trading opportunity this latest political twist is sure to offer. 

Curated vs. Collection 

Saving you the time and effort of working out who to follow on Twitter, and taming the unmanageable flow of fast-moving Tweets by only showing you those that are financially relevant, our SmartTracks are incredibly useful tools for traders.   

Our Curated SmartTracks bring you key, financially relevant Tweets for topics and search terms (such as ‘UK General Election’ or ‘Brexit’), whereas our Collection SmartTracks return Tweets from influential Twitter users that we've grouped together in a single feed.

In this case, we’ve created a Curated SmartTrack for the UK General Election, and Collection SmartTracks for Senior UK Politicians, UK Politicians, UK Political Media and UK Pollsters and Metrics.

If you’re already an EarlyBird user, adding these latest SmartTracks to your dashboard is really easy. Log in to EarlyBird, click the LISTS button in the top orange header, then select them from the SmartTracks folder in the left sidebar.

Alternately, if you're already logged in to EarlyBird you can use the buttons below to instantly add them to your dashboard:
