PHLX Options Market – Data Products

Overview

Nasdaq PHLX (PHLX) operates an electronic and hybrid floor-based trading system to trade options. The PHLX Options Market offers a traditional allocation model for orders. The tradition of innovation that has characterized the PHLX since it’s inception in 1790 continues to carry on as the Exchange serves as a leader in technology and responds to the ever-changing needs of the investment community as a part of Nasdaq.

To facilitate trading on its options market, Nasdaq PHLX has developed proprietary data feed products that are designed to promote full market transparency with minimal latencies.

Benefits & Features

PHLX has developed the following proprietary options data products which are now available:

  • PHLX Depth of Market (PHLX Depth) is designed to provide aggregate order book and last sale data from the PHLX Options Market in an easy-to-display format. Similar to NASDAQ TotalView-Aggregated feed, PHLX Depth summarizes the order interest at each price level in the PHLX system.
  • Top of PHLX Options (TOPO) is designed to provide Best Bid and Offer (BBO) and last sale information directly to PHLX Options Market participant firms that subscribe to the data feed.
  • TOPO Plus Orders is designed to provide Best Bid and Offer (BBO) and last sale information Plus the state of single and complex orders on the PHLX order book to firms on a real-time basis. TOPO Plus Orders provides access to both the TOPO data feed and the PHLX Orders data feed.
  • Historical PHLX Orders provides a historical record of the simple and complex order message data from the TOPO Plus Orders data product. Subscribers to this historical product may download the Historical PHLX Orders daily message logs on a T+1 basis from a secure FTP server. Historical PHLX Orders is available as eight separate files each day, four for simple orders and four for complex orders. The data originates from the PHLX Orders data feed and therefore, no quote data is included.
  • PHLX Options Trade Outline is designed to provide proprietary electronic Nasdaq PHLX (PHLX) trade data to subscribers. PHOTO is available as either an End-of-Day or Intra-Day file and subscribers may access the files from a secured FTP server. Primary fields in both files include aggregate trade quantity and trade volume for each customer origin type of the trade. Fields are further broken down by opening buy, closing buy, opening sell and closing sell, all for every option series listed and traded on PHLX in which an electronic trade occurred during the trading day.
