Interactive Data Corporation (NYSE: IDC), a leading provider of financial market data, analytics and related solutions, today announced that its Managed Solutions business has significantly expanded PrimeTerminalSM Professional, its customisable financial desktop solution, to include a calendar view of macroeconomic indicators, as well as additional exchange data content.
PrimeTerminal Professional now offers Dow Jones Calendar Live, which includes a calendar and real-time event data that can allow financial advisors and wealth managers to monitor economic and political events of potential relevance to investment recommendations and investment decisions. Available events data includes publication dates for economic indicators, economic forecasts as well as global economic and political events such as central bank meetings and government bond auctions. The new service is available as an option to the existing PrimeTerminal Event Calendar.
Data from a range of trading venues has also been added to the content offering of PrimeTerminal. Level 2 data from Chi-X Europe, a market-leading European multilateral trading facility (MTF), is now available in real time and will complement data from European MTF Turquoise, which has been accessible through PrimeTerminal since the end of 2008. Several other leading exchanges, such as the National Stock Exchange of India, Bangkok Stock Exchange, GreTai Securities Market and the Buenos Aires Stock Exchange have also been integrated into this desktop solution.
