Dow Jones Introduces Forex News in Arabic

17 September 2008

Dow Jones & Company, a News Corporation company (NYSE: NWS, NWS.A; ASX: NWS, NWSLV), today announced the introduction of Dow Jones Forex News in Arabic, a service that is available to financial services firms and trading portals that want to broaden the range of services they offer Arabic-speaking investors and traders.

Dow Jones Forex News in Arabic is designed to be a key tool for banks, forex portals and solutions providers seeking to provide high-quality news and information for their investment and trading clients who prefer to receive market news in Arabic. The service offers major currency trading news, macroeconomic and central bank coverage, and DJ Market Talk for Forex, streaming commentary on currency market activity, including expert views on market direction. It is delivered via an XML feed for maximum flexibility in integration.

“Dow Jones Forex News in Arabic is another example of our strategy to increase our global editorial assets and increase our coverage in local languages,” said Neal Lipschutz, senior vice president and managing editor, Dow Jones Newswires.

Dow Jones Forex News in Arabic is designed for leading foreign exchange brokerages and banks, FX trading platforms and FX portals. As the service is not accessible through individual subscription, currency traders and investors should ask their affiliated banks and service institutions’ representatives about availability.

The new service is produced in cooperation with KnowledgeView Ltd, Dow Jones’s partner in the Middle East for the production and delivery of Arabic-language news services using the Publish Live technology from KnowledgeView. Dow Jones Forex News in Arabic joins another Arabic-language service in Dow Jones’s Local Languages suite, Zawya Dow Jones News Service, which covers business and financial news from the Middle East.
