Quote.com is a website that delivers financial content and trading tools to active traders and individual investors. It provides free access to delayed worldwide quotes, charts and financial news covering major markets and more than 50 exchanges, including NYSE, NASDAQ, the London Stock Exchange and the Tokyo Stock Exchange.
Founded in 1993, Quote.com was one of the first financial portals: it provided stock quotes, detailed market data on options, commodity futures, mutual funds and bonds; real-time business news; market analysis; balance-sheet data; and company profiles. In 1997, Quote.com and ClariNet Communications forged an alliance to provide financial market data, including news, quotes, charts, research and analysis over ClariNet's online news services.
In 1999, Quote.com became part of the Lycos Network when Lycos, Inc. acquired the company for $78.3 million in stock. Quote.com was among the top five investment information sites on the web at that time. Known as the Lycos Finance division, Quote.com expanded with the subscription-based QCharts and LiveCharts services that provided real-time streaming data. In 2006, Interactive Data Corporation acquired the assets of Quote.com and certain other related assets from Lycos, Inc. for $30 million in cash. In 2013, Quote.com was purchased by Dan Wesley.
