We are looking for someone that can provide us with a database of all the major global news and events that have affected the financial markets (globally) for the past 10 years. These major global news and events will NOT include any market index information but are only to do with the news and events that affect the financial markets.
The sort of information will include dates and details of the release of all global economic data as well as dates and details of all news that affects the financial markets.
Ideally we want a comprehensive database that is structured a bit like this:
Country in which event occurred:
Currencies affected by the event:
Details about event:
The "Currencies affected by the event" is not essential.
The "Details about the Event" section only requires a short elaboration on the headline.
This data is to be added by us to a time series database of currency prices so that the events can be linked to the changes in the currency prices. We do not require any currency price data as we already have it.
Essential is that the transfer of the information to us gives up full copyright protection. We would prefer to own the rights to this data. However if the winning bidder want us to propose using someone elses database then we must be aware of the cost of use of that database before the bid is awarded.
