ESignal, the desktop solutions division of Interactive Data Corporation (NYSE: IDC) and a leading provider of streaming, real-time financial market data, news, analytics and decision-support tools for professional and individual traders, today announced major enhancements to its premier web-based global financial portal Quote.com and an upgrade of Mobile Quote.com.
Quote.com now offers users an optional international start page for Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Singapore or Spain, in addition to the existing choices of a United States or United Kingdom start page. These country-specific financial portals are designed to give active investors access to each country's major domestic markets and deliver region-specific financial news supplied by COMTEX, AFX and RTT News.
Mobile Quote.com offers stock, futures, Forex and mutual fund quotes, including world market data, business news and charts using any cell phone, PDA or Smartphone with access to the Internet via a wireless carrier or WiFi Hotspots. In addition to keeping on-the-go investors abreast of market-moving data at all times, this new version enables road warriors to select and maintain five "Watchlists" of up to 10 trading symbols each and to use a chart-interval feature for economic analysis. A currency calculator allows users to make foreign exchange rate calculations using Quote.com Forex currency rates. The calculator includes the seven most-traded currencies: U.S. dollar, Canadian dollar, euro, British pound, Swiss franc, Australian dollar and Japanese yen, and also includes the Mexican peso, Russian ruble, Hong Kong dollar and Singapore dollar.
"We are very pleased to announce these improvements to Quote.com and Mobile Quote.com," said Chuck Thompson, president of eSignal. "As interest in the global financial arena expands, active traders need dynamic access to detailed financial information on specific securities, regardless of where those securities may trade on a global basis. With 40 percent of the overall Quote.com user base located outside of the United States, developing country-specific start pages is a fundamental way we can customize our content to meet their needs. Also, since investors can't always be in front of a computer, our intention is to give them easy access to worldwide financial data through their mobile devices so that they can make well-informed market decisions whenever and wherever they need to."
