Interactive Data Introduces Web and Mobile Versions of FutureSource

New Delivery Options Provide Anytime, Anywhere Access to FutureSource Workspaces Across Multiple Devices

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jul 9, 2013) - Interactive Data Corporation, a leading provider of market data solutions to the global energy and commodities industry, today announced web and iPad application versions of FutureSource® -- offering access to quotes, charts and news through a browser or tablet.

With growing demand for mobility, Interactive Data continues to make significant investments in extending the range of channels through which traders, brokers and analysts can access FutureSource globally. They now include a rich, hosted version as well as BlackBerry, iPad and iPhone apps, which complement the desktop application and require no additional exchanges fees.

The new FutureSource web application requires no software download and minimal bandwidth to run. All symbol lists, settings and workspaces are saved on the server, so users can access them from anywhere by logging in from any browser.

The web application delivers the same core features as the desktop version, including hundreds of price aspects; access to more than 150 exchanges; powerful technical analysis with seasonal charts; forward curves and continuation charts; futures options; calculators; data import and export with Excel add-on; menu-tree style symbol search; weather maps; spread matrix and seamless trade integration with FutureSource Trader. Third party content from Platts, OPIS (non-racks), Argus, Amerex, EOX, SNL, SNL ISO, USDA, and Market Insight News for Commodities, Energy and Metals is also available.

"Energy and commodities traders, brokers and analysts are increasingly mobile and require greater flexibility in how they access the tools they use to trade," said Kyle Ford, Global General Manager, Desktops at Interactive Data. "These market professionals are looking for a platform that can provide the content, functionality and usability to support their decisions, anytime and anywhere. The browser-based and tablet versions of FutureSource are designed to address these needs by delivering the same functionality, look and feel as the desktop version with which they are familiar."

With the desktop, web and mobile platforms driven by a user's account, the same news and other entitlements are respected. Robust entitlement control is designed to ensure that a user is only logged in to FutureSource on one device or version at any given time.
