Interactive Data Extends FUTURESOURCE with New Energy and Commodities Data


New York, December 16, 2013: Interactive Data Corporation, a leading provider of market data solutions for the global energy and commodities industry, today announced a significant series of enhancements to FutureSource®, its market data management and analytics platform.

Energy and commodities traders are increasingly looking for comprehensive data sets for use in analyzing global demand pattern changes and volatility across a diverse range of products.  To help address these challenges, Interactive Data has broadened its energy and commodities content within FutureSource to include:

  • GFI and ICAP content: Leading Inter-Dealer Broker data covering the global physical, swaps, and options markets for the crude oil, natural gas, power, and emissions markets. The combination of data from GFI and ICAP can help traders to form a more accurate assessment of the global energy markets.
  • Informa Agra global cash market grain data: Content to chart cash market prices alongside the futures markets and view them in a watch list or data table to provide a more complete picture of markets.
  • OPIS Racks: Prices for the wholesale gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, and ethanol markets within North America, to support enhanced price discovery in those markets.

“Traders, brokers and analysts globally are demanding the content and analytical tools to understand, model and rapidly react to changes in the energy and commodities markets,” commented Kyle Ford, Global General Manager, Desktops at Interactive Data. “Recognizing these challenges, we continue to extend the depth and breadth of content available within FutureSource to include leading Inter-Dealer Broker data, industry benchmarks and trusted news sources. We are also providing users with flexible and customizable tools that they require to chart and analyze that data to support their decision-making process.

“OPIS is excited to have Interactive Data as a vendor of our rack and spot information,” said Scott Berhang, Director, Client Relations and Education at OPIS. “Having our prices on this platform offers our customers even more flexibility in the way that they can access OPIS data for their price discovery needs.”

“The Public Ledger is recognized as a premier source of news, analysis and data in agricultural commodities,” added Ian Hart, content director at publisher Informa Agra. “We’re extremely pleased to be working with Interactive Data so that its customers can benefit from The Public Ledger price data feed, supporting their trading and investment decisions across a broad spectrum of agricultural commodities.”

Alongside the broad array of new content available in the latest iteration of FutureSource, further enhancements include new functionality in the FutureSource web application that requires no software download and minimal bandwidth to run. All symbol lists, settings and workspaces are saved on the server, so users can access them from anywhere by logging in from any browser.

The updated web application is designed to deliver new and enhanced methods for viewing and analyzing market data. This includes support for the latest Excel add-in functionality, assisting users in easily extracting historical price data and formulas from FutureSource.

Web application users can now use the FutureSource forward curve engine to chart natural gas and power curves from leading independent futures broker EOX. They can also access more than 25 additional studies for market analysis, including average directional index, bullish divergence, and a variety of crack and crush spreads.
