In addition, CCMS also provides real-time news and analysis on money markets and financial policy in Hong Kong, Taiwan and the top global markets such as the U.S. and Japan.

CCMS was first made available through one of China’s leading trading terminals, Northern Star. Wind Info is the second distributor in Mainland China to provide this service.

"Wind Info is very pleased to partner with Dow Jones Newswires," said Zhou Li, chief executive officer of Wind Information Corporation. "With the incredible development of China’s capital markets, CCMS as a cutting-edge, Chinese-language financial product will undoubtedly help local business professionals succeed in their trading activities."
