Interactive Data Corporation, a leading provider of financial market data, analytics and related solutions, today announced that it helped to build "CBOE Mobile," a newly launched iPhone application offered by the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), the largest U.S. options exchange and creator of listed options.
The app can be downloaded for free from iTunes.
CBOE Mobile provides users with access to the most popular content from the Exchange's website, including delayed quotes for CBOE options contracts, market snapshots of major stock indexes, charting, options education programs, CBOE-TV programming, a CBOE Twitter feed, and a breaking financial news feed.
Interactive Data worked closely with CBOE to design and develop the app to meet specialized requirements. Interactive Data hosts and supports the application on an ongoing basis from its web solutions platform, which is designed to provide highly customizable and scalable content solutions. The Company has provided market data solutions to CBOE.com for several years, and has now expanded its relationship with the CBOE to include solutions for mobile platforms.
"Our collaboration with the CBOE on this new iPhone app underscores our ability to respond effectively and meet the diverse needs of our growing customer base," said Luan Cox, general manager of Interactive Data Managed Solutions (Americas). "In working with CBOE to build a customized mobile interface that is geared to consumers, we have again demonstrated that our solutions provide users with a differentiated, user-friendly experience."
"Recognizing the significant increase in the number of iPhone users visiting the CBOE website, we recently launched CBOE Mobile, the latest initiative to support options market users, who are also users of social media," said Cynthia Elsener, CBOE Vice President, Marketing and Educational Services. "We're pleased that Interactive Data helped us to develop and build an app with a variety of easy-to-use features and functionality."
