Customers in the financial services industry constantly face an uncertain future and are increasing demand for more information to make the best trading decisions possible. Providers and exchanges understand this and are heeding the call. Some niche market data announcements this month include:
- SuperDerivatives expanded its fixed income data on its DGX market data terminal to include bond reference data from credit data provider FactEntry
- Thomson Reuters integrated its research and forecast analytics from US-based agriculture, forestry and renewable energy with analyst firm Lanworth
- Nasdaq OMX is using real-time Treasury bond pricing data from fixed income trading platform BondDesk to support trading in options on U.S. Treasuries which the exchange launched recently on its PHLX market
With different types of trades on the rise, the need for different types of data increases. Unlike latency-sensitive quote data (bid, ask, bid size, ask size), some not-so-latency-sensitive niche data serves an emerging segment of consumers. Are you in alignment with the market data demand of your customers?
