Today at 10:00 AM ET, FT Alphaville will launch the inaugural US edition of Markets Live, its popular up-to-the-second commentary on markets news and movements modeled after sports commentators’ play-by-plays during athletic games. During the sessions, readers are invited to join in the conversation and post questions. This week’s guest host will be Doug Cliggott, a Managing Director of Credit Suisse in its Investment Banking division.

Hosted by FT Alphaville’s New York correspondents Cardiff Garcia and John McDermott, US Markets Live will take place every Friday at 10:00 AM ET at http://ftalphaville.ft.com/marketslive/. Read more about the US launch at http://on.ft.com/horbtV.
