Empirasign Blog Entry: BWIC Watcher



BWIC Watcher

Jan. 27, 2014

What It Is, How It Works

To engage the BWIC Watcher simply click on the HAL 9000-looking icon (circled in red below). This icon appears at the top of every BWIC screen. A pop-up dialog box will confirm that the watcher has been engaged. To turn the BWIC Watcher off, click on the same icon again. As an aside, clicking on the nearby envelope icon will send you a nicely formatted email of the current BWIC with any available Trade Color and Price Talk.

When viewing a BWIC that you're already "watching," it will be noted as seen in the screenshot below.

Whenever Empirasign updates (new or additional Price Talk or Trade Color) a "watched" BWIC, you'll receive an alert to your Bloomberg or email. An example alert is shown below. On January 16th, I used the BWIC Watcher to keep tabs on the ING Liquidation.
