    New eSignal 7.3 Places Timely Market Analytics, Charts and News at Trader’s Fingertips with Customizable Pop-Out Windows and Expanded Market Depth with NYSE OpenBook

    Hayward, Calif., May 27, 2003 - 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 to professional and individual traders, today announced the immediate availability of eSignal 7.3. This expansion of the 7 series software provides traders greater control and flexibility of market information by introducing enhancements to the software including features such as Pop-Out Windows, a new Quoteboard Window, plus expanded Market Depth for NYSE OpenBook and Regional Options.

    “eSignal 7 series has redefined the trader’s desktop and offers a complete trading solution for every level of trader,” said Chuck Thompson, president of eSignal. “By continuing to build on our success and focusing on our customer’s needs, I believe we have developed the ultimate solution for traders everywhere.”

    eSignal 7.3 Enhancements Increase Trader’s Access to Market Information

    eSignal 7.3 boosts trader’s access to timely, market information with an innovative new Pop-Out Window feature allowing users to detach any window in eSignal – a chart, scrolling ticker, real-time portfolio or any other window. Users can then place the selected popped out window anywhere on their monitor alongside other applications in use. This is particularly useful for traders with multiple monitors as it allows them to move specific windows into any of their monitors. Customized layouts are easily saved in eSignal and available automatically the next time the program is used. Pop-out windows allow customers to easily keep an eye on the market while they edit documents, place a trade or perform work in other software applications.

    “eSignal continues to improve on its suite of tools to better help investors like myself make trade decisions, “said Alexis C. Montenegro, an independent investor and participant in eSignal 7.3 beta testing. “With the pop-out windows feature the software now allows me the freedom to multitask and finish work on other projects while I continually monitor my portfolio.”

    Included in this release is eSignal’s new Quoteboard, letting users display key information and a visual barometer on multiple contracts in one single window. The Quoteboard allows users to quickly customize and visually scan the window to see buy/sell pressure on their issues. Highly requested by futures traders, the new Quoteboard allows them to display the open, high, low, close and change for a multitude of contracts.

    Expanded Market Depth

    Market Depth for NYSE OpenBook is now available in eSignal 7.3. Market Depth is a critical tool for the professional trader, helping them to gauge liquidity across markets – during and after market hours. Market fragmentation can be an opportunity if investors have access to data from major liquidity sources like SuperMontage and ECNs, combined with a set of data management tools to help control that information. In addition to NYSE OpenBook, eSignal offers NASDAQ SuperMontage, and ECNs Island and Archipelago. New Regional Options data offers trader the ability to price comparison shop for best bid and ask among the regional exchanges trading a particular stock.


    eSignal was selected as a finalist in the “Best Online Professional Financial Information Services” category for the Software & Information Industry Association’s (SIIA) 18th Annual Codie Awards. Furthermore, in its 2003 annual Readers' Choice Awards, the magazine's readers voted eSignal products and services as providing "Best Real-Time and Delayed Data" and eSignal's Advanced GET as "Best Trading System for Stocks" and "Best Trading System for Futures."
