Introducing the Next Generation of Barchart.com - More Features, Expansive Data and Fully Responsive

CHICAGO, IL - November 16, 2016 - Today, Barchart, a leading provider of financial market data and technology, has officially announced the release of the next generation of Barchart.com (www.barchart.com). Barchart.com, which debuted in 1995, is one of the largest financial market data, charting, news and analysis websites, covering stocks, ETFs, mutual funds, indices, futures, options and currencies. With the release of the new Barchart.com, traders, investors and other market participants have access to a modern and responsive website with extensive sets of market data and tools to enhance their trading and investing decisions. The new website also showcases some of the latest advancements in web-based technology as Barchart.com features HTML5 and JavaScript, streaming market data inside a browser and the speed, scalability and reliability provided by cloud computing through Amazon Web Service’s (AWS).

“Barchart.com is the cornerstone of our business as that is where we started and have grown to nearly 1 million visitors per month,” said Andrew Lowdon, Founder and COO of Barchart.com. “The website attracts users from all around the world, following both US and International markets, with a wide variety of user profiles, but with a common interest in monitoring and analyzing the markets. For years we have given these users free access to valuable market data and tools, and we have no intention of slowing down. While Barchart.com is part of our media business, it is also a showcase for our business-to-business solutions, as the new site is powered by the same core market data feeds, APIs and infrastructure that our institutional clients rely on,” added Lowdon.

“The project itself has taken two years to complete and the underlying framework of the site will allow us to continue to add additional data and tools with ease,” said Mark Haraburda, CEO of Barchart. “We are also very pleased with being able to build the new site to be responsive across all device types--it’s impressive that we have been able to fit the entire Barchart.com into a website that completely functions on your phone, all without having to download an app,” added Haraburda.
