Nasdaq DataStore

Overview

The Nasdaq DataStore is a showcase for Nasdaq's innovative and premier data products.

For investors, DataStore offers access to Nasdaq’s newest and most innovative data products via a secured web-based interface.

For market data redistributors, online brokerages and other market participant firms, DataStore offers ready-made displays that can be easily integrated with existing Nasdaq data products. Using the DataStore plug-and-play technology, firms can vastly improve the time-to-market for new Nasdaq data content.

The DataStore provides all traders with instant access to our plug-and-play technology for market data. This is the first time a U.S. stock exchange has allowed the opportunity for direct purchase of this breadth of data directly via the Web.

 

Current Offerings

Nasdaq DataStore offers web-based access to the following display products:

  • Net Order Imbalance Indicator (NOII) – View Nasdaq crossing data to participate in the Nasdaq Opening Cross, Closing Cross, IPO Cross and Halt Cross. Use this information to find liquidity and predict cross prices before they occur. NOII positively impacts a traders’ ability to perform effectively in a highly competitive environment.

     

  • BookViewer – BookViewer is powered by Nasdaq TotalView and provides one way to display the powerful full depth of book data. Showcasing all the buy and sell orders in Nasdaq for securities listed on Nasdaq, the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and the American Stock Exchange (MKT), BookViewer helps traders track pockets of liquidity over time, understand how orders are distributed throughout the market, identify new trading opportunities and pursue unique trading strategies.

     

  • Nasdaq Market Velocity and Nasdaq Market Forces – Nasdaq Market Velocity and Forces measure levels of pre-trade interest and market activity in Nasdaq, NYSE- and MKT-listed stocks traded on The Nasdaq Stock Market to indicate liquidity level and buy and sell momentum. Market Velocity gives you access to unique data not found anywhere else. Use Market Velocity to compare the expected order activity in a security with the current activity to detect surges in trading interest before trades occur. Nasdaq Market Forces indicates whether trading interest is surging in buy or sell orders.

  • Daily Share Volume – Track market participants’ trading activity in specific stocks, indexes and sectors. Nasdaq-listed and non-Nasdaq listed share volume is displayed on the same night in which the trade was executed. This capability allows users to make better educated routing and trading decisions.

     

  • Nasdaq Volume Weighted Average Price (VWAP) – Uses real-time consolidated data to calculate the average price of trades in any security at a given time of day. Nasdaq VWAP gives the up-to-the-minute real-time VWAP from the start-of-day, showing benchmarking information to ensure you are getting the best price for your trades.

     

  • Nasdaq Market Pathfinders – Pathfinders is a real-time data product that indicates the sentiment of the market based on the buying and selling patterns of Nasdaq market makers. Using Nasdaq trade data, this product identifies "pathfinders" that are actively buying or selling a large volume of shares in a particular security, in the anticipation of a price increase or decrease. Pathfinders are kept anonymous — it is the aggregation of their trading activity that is used to determine if these market participants are bullish or bearish on a particular issue. The Market Pathfinders information is updated every second for every issue traded by Nasdaq.

     

  • Nasdaq Market ReplaySM – Market ReplaySM is an extremely powerful replay and analysis tool, allowing users to view the consolidated order book and trade data for Nasdaq-, NYSE- and MKT-listed securities at any point in time. Trade support and Compliance desks can use Market ReplaySM to help validate best execution and Reg NMS compliance. Brokers and traders can use the tool to reconstruct the events around their trade to determine whether there was a missed opportunity or an unforeseen event. Brokers can send clients a Nasdaq-validated screen shot of the moment their particular trade occurred, confirming the quality of the execution and reducing the number of customer inquiries.
