Interactive Data Corporation, a leading provider of financial market data, analytics and related solutions, today announced that it has developed a Facebook application for OnVista, Germanyâs popular finance portal. The âStock Exchange Oracleâ, a new entertainment application, was specifically designed for OnVista by Interactive Data and accompanies the extension of the long-term relationship between the two companies.
At OnVista's Facebook page, Facebook users can compete to win daily prizes by predicting the closing prices for the DAX, the dollar and crude oil. The daily winner will be the person who provides the most accurate prediction of the closing prices, with a chart showing the closest results from the previous day so that users can compare performance. Interactive Data designed and developed the application, and maintains the game on its systems.
"For more than 10 years, OnVista has set the benchmark for data quality and depth and breadth of online stock market information,â said Robert Kaiser, managing director of OnVista Media GmbH. âWe continue to extend our services via new channels, for example in mobile internet and social networks such as Facebook.â
"We are delighted to further strengthen our long-standing agreement with OnVista and help integrate a Facebook presence for its finance portal,â added Carsten Dirks, global managing director of Wealth Management Products at Interactive Data. âOur powerful market data platform delivers high-quality data and information into applications for different user devices. We can help OnVista to support a mobile and internet-savvy target group in multiple channels and effectively position itself in the market.â
