Following the publication of European Union commodity derivatives markets size data – published by the European Securities and Markets Authority (Esma) on July 7 – the majority of energy firms now believe they can qualify for an exemption from the second Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (Mifid II) when it begins on January 3, 2018. Under the regime, commodity trading firms will be classified automatically as investment firms and subject to a complex web of financial regulation – inclu
The drop in price volatility and narrowing margins across energy markets has driven the industry’s risk managers to look to more complex forecasting models and hunt out new sources of data. Uncertainty lingers in energy markets, where a lack of volatility and tightened margins mean utilities, oil and gas firms can no longer rely on simple forecasting models. Many are collecting more data and building more sophisticated risk models in order to remain competitive. For some, it’s a matter of survi
European commodities firms have expressed concern that a new prudential regime for investment firms being designed by the European Banking Authority (EBA) will subject them to onerous and unnecessary capital and liquidity requirements. “We don’t believe this regime is appropriate for commodities firms,” says a regulatory affairs officer at a large European utility. “It doesn’t take into account the specific risks commodities firms face. It’s aimed at financial firms that have different risks to
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
