Dow Jones Newswires has launched a real-time market data service for the worldwide futures markets.
Featuring market news, commentary, columns, calendars, weather, statistics and market summaries, Dow Jones Futures Service is designed to keep brokers and traders up-to-date on interest rates, indexes, currencies, energy and traditional commodities. The service will be demonstrated at the annual Futures and Options Expo in Chicago next week.
As part of the roll out, Dow Jones Newswires has increased its editorial staff and posted reporters on the floors of the Chicago Board of Trade and Chicago Mercantile Exchange. The new service will also draw on Dow Jones' international network of journalists as well as reporters from The Associated Press.
The real-time newsfeed is projected to provide more than 1700 items of global futures market coverage each day and will be accessible via several market data platforms. In addition, Dow Jones Newswires says it will offer its own IP-based application, which will be powered by MoneyLine. This application will include delayed quotes from futures exchanges around the world.
