Interactive Data's ComStock to Provide Central and Eastern European OTC Data from Conticap.

LONDON -- ComStock, an Interactive Data (NYSE: IDC) business and a leading provider of real-time global market data and managed solutions, today announced that it has entered into an agreement with Swiss-based Continental Capital Markets SA ('Conticap'), a leading broker servicing the emerging central and eastern European capital markets. Conticap will supply ComStock with a range of financial data in the following currencies: New Turkish Lira, Polish Zloty, Hungarian Forint, Russian Rouble, Romanian New Leu and Israeli Shekel. The data will include foreign exchange (in all currencies except Israeli Shekel), interest rates (in all currencies) and fixed income instruments (in Polish Zloty and Hungarian Forint).

The Conticap feed is available via ComStock's flagship high-speed digital datafeed, PlusFeed, and also via Interactive Data's GTIS service, which covers global over-the-counter prices contributed by leading market players in the foreign exchange, precious metals, money and fixed income markets.

David Hann, general manager, EMEA of ComStock, commented: "There is a growing demand for a comprehensive supply of this hard-to-get data from emerging central and eastern European markets. The Conticap source will further enrich ComStock's datafeed - content received will include FX spot, forwards and swaps, local currency government bonds and non-deliverable forward foreign exchange."
