HAYWARD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 29, 2002

Now Offers Streaming, Real-Time Financial Market Data

from 17 Major European Exchanges

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 it has expanded its European offering to include additional stock exchanges, as well as historical and intraday European financial data.

Coverage now includes real-time streaming stock data, indices and corporate bond data from 17 major European stock exchanges.

Today's announcement follows on the heels of enormous success for the company's brand new analytical and charting software, eSignal(TM) 7.0, just released in April. By coupling the advanced technical analysis capabilities available in version 7.0 with the newly available European historical and tick data, eSignal offers the European trading community a consolidated trading platform with built-in tools critical to performing real-time analytics on global data. eSignal version 7.0 incorporates high-end charting, technical drawing tools and a new eSignal formula script engine (based on JavaScript) for customizing technical studies and indicators. It also features more than 100 studies including third party studies from leading technical analysts.

The newly added exchanges include the Warsaw Stock Exchange, the Bolsa de Valores de Lisboa e Porto (Lisbon and Oporto Exchange) and the Budapest Stock Exchange. Two years of European historical data and 30 days of intraday data from 17 European exchanges are now immediately available.

The expanded coverage is made possible by eSignal's relationship with its sister organization, FT Interactive Data, which aggregates and transmits the European data into eSignal's infrastructure supporting its data delivery platform. The resulting combination enables eSignal to distribute the European market data via its fast, reliable real-time quote service across the globe. By leveraging the strengths that exist within Interactive Data Corporation, eSignal now complements its North American coverage with European data.

"By combining reliable and fast real-time delivery services covering European and U.S. stock exchanges with the advanced charting and analytics in eSignal 7.0, we are empowering users with the best trading tools needed to follow the global markets," said Chuck Thompson, president of eSignal. "We believe the resulting solution is unparalleled and that this is, by far, one of the most compelling trading solutions to have hit the European marketplace."
