E*TRADE FINANCIAL Corporation launched a web portal meant to allow customers to access to quotes, research and content from international exchanges, marking the first phase in the company’s plan to enable US Retail customers to trade on 42 international exchanges, while holding multiple currencies in a single account.

.”Retail investors are seeking diversification, which is one of the primary drivers for foreign markets trading,” said R. Jarrett Lilien, president and chief operating officer of E*TRADE FINANCIAL. “As U.S. investors become increasingly sophisticated, there is a tremendous opportunity to provide them with a platform to invest in foreign markets.”

The portal will allow access to the following: international delayed quotes from the Tokyo, London, Hong Kong, Germany, Canada and Paris exchanges; international news, including headlines and company news; international charts, including mini-charts for indices; lists of existing trade-able products, including relevant data points.
