Trade Decision Support Tool Customized and Packaged for Forex, Mini Futures Traders and Advanced GET Edition Users

HAYWARD, Calif., July 7, 2009 – eSignal, a 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 that it has released three new products that provide affordable solutions to meet the unique needs of technical analysis, stocks, futures, and Forex traders.

The three new offerings are eSignal® OnDemand – Forex; eSignal OnDemand – Mini Futures; and eSignal OnDemand – Advanced GET® Edition. With these new offerings, eSignal OnDemand has been designed to accommodate Forex, and mini futures traders through trade support tools designed to meet their varied investing needs, along with a combination of historical, end-of-day and real-time data. In addition to decision-support tools, the new products allow traders to send trade messages to brokers of their choice from a list of compatible brokers.

“With our initial introduction of eSignal OnDemand, we provided clients with a high-quality charting application at a low cost for price-sensitive, end-of-day users,” said Chuck Thompson, president of eSignal. “These three new versions of the product have been very well received by our end users, particularly clients of our compatible brokers, who find these price points attractive in this difficult economic climate.”

eSignal OnDemand – Forex offers users access to real-time streaming Forex data by individual contributors, coupled with historical and end-of-day data, as well as decision support tools. The software displays streaming Forex rates in the recognizable Forex dealing grid and shows the flags of both currencies, in order to improve recognition of each rate.

eSignal OnDemand – Mini Futures is an affordable solution for mini futures traders that provides real-time, streaming quotes on CME E-mini index futures contracts, as well as tools designed to assist them in making informed trades. The product combines affordability with the benefits of trading the minis, including round-the-clock availability, and lower commissions plus reduces exposure to the volatile stock market.

eSignal OnDemand – Advanced GET integrates Advanced GET's award-winning suite of sophisticated trading tools with eSignal OnDemand’s robust intraday charting and a unique end-of-day data feed solution. The product's sophisticated Dashboard feature—which allows users to implement technical studies in multiple timeframes, scan the entire market, and import candidates for trading analysis – now features an improved interface and strategy tools.

The new versions of eSignal OnDemand tap into the powerful eSignal OnDemand platform that includes eSignal’s primary research tools such as eSignal Formula ScriptSM (EFSSM), advanced charting, back testing, customized studies, plus the standard eSignal product features including quote windows, portfolio manager and access to the world’s markets. They also provide access to a broad range of international content from major stock exchanges and marketplaces around the world and access to 15 years of historical data, instantly updated whenever they open the application.

Availability and Pricing:

eSignal OnDemand – Forex and eSignal OnDemand – Mini Futures start as low as $44.95/month. For a limited time, each of these services may be tested for 30 days for only $1.00.
