Chicago Mercantile Exchange is to launch a new online quotes service, providing streaming real-time CME market data, news and charts to end-users via the Web.
Using Caplin’s RTTP (Real Time Text Protocol) Global Server and WebSheet systems, E-quotes will deliver financial market data directly into a client’s browser, allowing real-time data to flow through unmodified firewalls, with no application download or software installation. Users will be able to integrate interactive charting and news services with market data on the Web and to build customised packages of data, charting and news to fit individual needs.
Glen Madeja, director information products management, CME, says: “CME traditionally distributed its data via 175 quote vendors globally to approximately 190,000 users. Now, with CME E-quotes, we have direct contact with the trading community and are able to respond quickly and effectively to their needs. For example, we have already designed different packages of news, charts and additional information on our E-mini stock index products.”
Project implementation took four months, and also included the integration of OsterDowJones Commodities News and FutureSource interactive charting.
Subscriptions to the service will be available via a secure link to www.cme.com, and payment may be made by all major credit cards. E-mini equity packages, including quotes and charts, are available for as low as $30 per month.
