Press releases 2005
Proquote, the London Stock Exchange’s market data and trading terminal business, has today launched its first global market data product, Proquote International, which provides extensive real-time and delayed data from over 100 markets and over the counter sources.
Proquote International gives institutional buyside firms and the broader financial community in-depth coverage of international equity, fixed income, currency, commodity and derivatives markets and indices. In addition to market data, users will also benefit from extensive pre-trade analytics and decision making tools.
Commenting on the launch of Proquote International, David Lester, Chief Information Officer of the London Stock Exchange, said:
“We have researched the market and seen there is a gap for Proquote to provide the mid tier market with a full service international market data product that is low cost and requires minimal IT infrastructure.”
“Proquote International offers a lower total cost of ownership because less resource is required to administer, support and maintain the service. Its market data management system is a unique tool, which provides accurate reporting and analysis of market data usage at an individual level.”
In addition to extensive coverage of multiple asset classes, Proquote International will also offer the key features that Proquote provides. These include:
• News feeds from multiple sources including RNS, AFX, Dow Jones and user-defined news feeds
• Comprehensive pre-trade analytics functionality with the Proquote Clearview toolset included as standard
• In-depth company fundamentals including broker forecasts, directors’ dealings and accounts
• Intra-day charting, equity and index charting, including stock-to-index, stock-to-stock comparisons and multi-year historical price history
• Access to extensive data on UK funds
• A powerful cross asset search-engine with customisable views and powerful screen-building tools
Proquote International will be officially unveiled at Tradetech 2005 in Paris on Wednesday 27th April. For further information about the show please visit: www.tradetech2005.com
