Global Market News
AFX News feeds are now available in eSignal 7.5 covering Europe, Asia and the UK, providing up-to-the-minute market news coverage for the eSignal subscriber community.
For news affecting U.S. markets, eSignal 7.5 now offers the Dow Jones NewsPlus service, a significant enhancement to the Dow Jones News services already available via eSignal. The Dow Jones NewsPlus features eliminates the need to use retrieval codes, enabling users to move easily beyond the thousands of daily, scrolling headlines to find a quick and comprehensive review of market-moving stories, market updates, analysis and commentary.
New Expanded History, Investigative Tools and Charts
eSignal 7.5 doubles its intraday history by offering six months of data, enabling subscribers to identify larger trends in the market. Options traders will find added value in the new daily histories of options including the open, high, low and close values.
The eSignal 7.5 update also offers new technical studies from leading experts including Kase StatWare, Bollinger Band Tool Kit and Jan Arps' Sigma Bands. Each of these studies provides proprietary indicators that automatically adapt to changing market conditions, increasing an investor's views into volatile market conditions. Other additions to eSignal 7.5 include several enhancements to the advanced charts feature. Most notably are the improved symbol and study overlays with better axis management, several marketprofileSM additions and the newly available indicator, Andrew's Pitchfork.
