Symphony tags

Symphony #tags are powerful ways to stay on top of trends or news.

Free text #hashtags begin with the # symbol followed by a word or words, such as #oilandgas, while Enhanced tags allow for the selection of financial instruments from a curated list and are preceded by a specific icon (Figure 1).

  2. If you don't select a tag, use the Escape key or click outside the message field and displayed tag menu to close the menu.


  • As Enhanced tags include a space, adding a space after your tag will no longer turn your text into a tag. You must type your tag and then use the Enter or Tab key after your text to do so.
  • You can search by ticker symbol, name, ISINs and other identifiers plus select the precise financial instrument to amplify the message and reduce operational risk in workflows. Alternatively, you can continue using regular free text hashtags.
  • You can follow an instrument to receive notifications. Tagging instruments triggers notifications, ensuring the message gets the attention it needs from the targeted users. Like existing signals and tags, you will only receive notifications from chat rooms you have access to.
