NEW YORK, Nov. 9, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:NDAQ) has launched a mobile web version of NASDAQ.com, the world's most popular stock exchange web site, which draws about 2.4 million unique visitors per month. NASDAQ is the world's first major stock exchange to offer free access to information on all web-enabled mobile devices and smartphones. At http://mobile.nasdaq.com, users have access to real-time stock quotes, breaking news, charts, commentary and features such as Guru Analysis -- which empowers users with simulated investment philosophies of several world-renowned investors.
"Investors now have instant access to a wealth of market information on NASDAQ.com from any location," said John Jacobs, Executive Vice President, NASDAQ OMX. "This is another step in our continuing efforts to meet greater demand for timely information and to promote market transparency."
The mobile edition of NASDAQ.com is powered by mDog.com, the world's most comprehensive destination for mobile search, mobile web browsing, and mobile blogging.
"We're thrilled to be working with NASDAQ," said Keith Gerard, Founder of mDog.com. "Powering the mobile initiatives of NASDAQ is a testament to our technology's ability to comprehensively render data in real-time for one of the world's premier stock exchanges."
The launch of the mobile web version follows another recent enhancement to www.nasdaq.com. NASDAQ OMX announced the introduction last week of NASDAQ Community, an engaging and interactive financial networking community, on http://community.nasdaq.com.
NASDAQ OMX has long been a technology leader and innovator in market information. In 1996, NASDAQ became the first stock market to create its own website. In 2008, NASDAQ became the first U.S. stock exchange to help provide millions of investors with immediate and free web access to real-time market data.
