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).
