eSignal expands into major new market, announces immediate availability of streamlining, real-time European financial market data

eSignal, a division of Interactive Data Corporation (Nasdaq NM: IDCO) and a provider of streaming, real-time financial market data, news, analytics and decision support tools to professional and individual traders, today announced that it has expanded into a new market by adding streaming, real-time European financial market data to the latest version of its industry-leading online quote system.
eSignal combines the strength of Interactive Data Corporation’s eSignal and FT Interactive Data divisions for delivery of fast and reliable domestic and international streaming, real-time data. Active traders and professional investors now have access to European financial market data for major European exchanges, including Euronext (Amsterdam, Brussels and Paris), Deutsche Börse (Berlin, Bremen, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Hanover, Munich, Stuttgart, Neuer Market and Xetra), the London Stock Exchange, and the exchanges in Copenhagen, Helsinki, Madrid, Oslo, Stockholm, Vienna and the Icelandic, Irish, Italian and Swiss stock exchanges. European financial data includes stocks, corporate bonds and market indices.


“eSignal’s expansion into the European market is a natural progression as we continue to expand our offerings,” said Chuck Thompson, president of eSignal. “eSignal will leverage its 20 years of experience, the speed and reliability of its market data delivery and its knowledge of customer needs to become the leading, real-time quote provider within Europe. This nicely illustrates the global synergy that exists within Interactive Data Corporation, as this is a direct result of the combined efforts of eSignal and FT Interactive Data.”
This advancement is a further milestone in eSignal’s continued position as a leading global provider of financial and market-related information to the investment community. eSignal has developed one of the most advanced ticker plant infrastructures capable of handling the European stock markets’ most challenging demands, as the company translates its success in North America into market momentum in Europe. Built with an advanced IP multicast backbone, eSignal's infrastructure boasts two completely redundant ticker plant facilities with multiple, geographically dispersed server farms, fed with live data from direct, redundant connections with the NYSE, AMEX, Nasdaq, Canadian, North American and European Futures and U.S. Options exchanges.


The new service is supported by eSignal's award winning eSignal software. It is also compatible with eSignal’s Advanced GET software and third party software such as MetaStock Pro and OmniTrader.
