New Version of eSignal's Trading Software Offers Increased Flexibility to Help Active Traders Manage Their Positions

More Than 40 New Enhancements Made to Award-Winning Flagship Trading Software

HAYWARD, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 2, 2012) - eSignal, an Interactive Data company and leading provider of real-time desktop solutions for professional and individual traders, today announced that it has released eSignal version 11.4, which provides traders with a significantly expanded suite of advanced analytics software.

eSignal provides streaming, real-time financial market data, news, analytics and decision-support tools for professional and active traders. Version 11.4 has more than 40 new features and enhancements, with more powerful tools and analytics that are designed to provide users greater ability to manage their trades and know when to trade, as well as the ability to trade with a wider selection of brokers.

New functionality in eSignal 11.4 includes simultaneous trading integration with more than 30 brokers and service providers, plus trend line alerts and an advanced trade log to export trades for further analysis. eSignal's ability to connect users with their broker of choice distinguishes it from other trading platforms that require use of a single broker. The all-in-one application allows users to set up their trading systems once, then execute with any of their supported brokers.

"Our continued expansion of eSignal helps to ensure that our customers have one of the most advanced platforms available to help them navigate markets, particularly in today's volatile environment," said Paul Famular, vice president of eSignal. "eSignal 11.4 blends advanced analytics and trading in a modern desktop platform to provide traders with one of the most sophisticated trading platforms available anywhere."

Key features of eSignal 11.4 include:

  • Chart Trading: Place orders directly on the charts, newly enhanced with a money management planner that enables automated exit strategies with multiple stops (fixed or trailing) and profit targets that are automatically sent to a broker once a position is opened.
  • Drawing Tools, Study Alerts and Templates: Set alerts that trigger with a pop-up, an audio alert or an email notification to obtain early signals for potential reversals. Alert templates provide the ability to quickly switch between styles to catch trend breaks and reversal patterns.
  • Composite Symbol Manager: A new symbol manager provides eSignal users with an easy-to-use wizard for creating complex spreads and formulas for a deeper level of analysis.
  • Simultaneous Trading Integration with Multiple Brokers: This enhancement to eSignal's broker neutrality includes the ability to simultaneously connect to many top brokers so that traders / investors can build their own customized solutions for executing trades of various financial instruments. Connect to and manage all your accounts in one easy-to-use platform at the same time.
