eSignal - Quote Board

ICE Data Services -

The Quote Board window allows you to view Open, High, Low, Close, Change, %Change and other fields of information which can be added, for stocks, commodities, futures, spreads and options. 
The vertical bar in each cell is called a Thermometer indicator. The Thermometer reflects the relative trading range for that day dynamically updating to reflect the current price. The small blue arrow on the left side of the Thermometer points to the Open value.

What the Colors Represent
The text color in each cell indicates whether the price is up, down, or unchanged. The default colors are red, green, and gray. Red indicates that the last tick price was below the opening price; Green indicates that the price is above the opening price; and gray indicates that the price is same/or unchanged as the opening. These colors can be customized by the user.
Fast Market/Settlement Indicator
The 'S' you see below indicates that the futures contract has settled for the day.  An 'F' indicates a Fast Market.
