With less than one week to go, one of the most hotly contested and toxic elections in a generation is poised to end in the United States, possibly ushering in a period of historic volatility. Ahead of the November 8th election between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, Thomson Reuters (NYSE:TRI) has introduced a US Election app on its Eikon platform, per a company statement.
The Eikon solution is one of Thomson Reuters’ flagship products that helps aggregate and process real-time and historical data, which collectively enable financial markets transactions and connectivity with the financial markets community.

The deployment of the US Election app caters to market participants looking for data and news streams on the date of the election and the final days leading up to it. In particular, users will be able to utilize ongoing market data, Reuters news articles, polls, and analysis across all major segments of the financial market.
The election app will also help provide an inter-day level of analysis and visuals, both with regard to domestic and global trends of capital markets, foreign exchange (FX), equities, fixed income, and commodities.
According to Debra Walton, Global Managing Director, Customer Proposition, Thomson Reuters Financial and Risk, in a recent statement on the launch: “U.S. presidential elections traditionally create short and long-term ramifications for all segments of the global economy and the financial markets.”
