    QuoTrek Enters the Mobile Market with Data From Over 75 Global Exchanges, Charting and News on BlackBerry, Palm and Pocket PC Devices

    Hayward, Calif., February 3, 2004, 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 QuoTrek, eSignal's new, wireless quote and market information service for mobile devices. The new QuoTrek allows users to leave their computers at home or the office and access their portfolios on their handheld, portable devices.

    Initially pioneered by eSignal in 1983, the original QuoTrek was a revolutionary handheld, wireless device delivering real-time market data and, at its peak boasted over 50,000 subscribers for wireless real-time market data and news. The convergence of cell phone/PDA technologies and the increased bandwidth available to today's wireless devices have afforded us the ability to introduce the new QuoTrek.

    "We recognized an opportunity to once again take the lead in offering our first-class market information services to mobile investors," said Chuck Thompson, president of eSignal. "With the new QuoTrek service, subscribers can access their portfolios and comprehensive market information virtually anywhere and at anytime, freeing traders from their desks and PCs."

    The new QuoTrek offers investors with mobile devices the reliable, streaming, real-time quotes that power eSignal's award-winning services and applications. With QuoTrek, U.S. and international stocks, indices, futures, options and FOREX data can be accessed using most mobile devices that utilize Microsoft Pocket PC, Palm and RIM BlackBerry operating systems.

    "It is an amazing experience to have such powerful market information available in the palm of my hand," said Alexis Montenegro, QuoTrek user. "With QuoTrek, I simply scroll and tap through charts and analytical studies to get just the information I need to stay on top of my portfolio, even while I'm away from my computer."

    QuoTrek provides investors streaming charts with real-time data that can be displayed in a line, bar or candlestick charts. Users can also select from more than 15 analytical studies. The QuoTrek service includes access to real-time news from PR Newswire and Business Wire.
