Q: How do I access Nasdaq index weightings data?
There are several ways you can receive index weighting data:
Nasdaq Global Index Watch – Nasdaq’s Standard Delivery Service (GIW)
This is a direct offering of proprietary index weightings data. GIW provides full access to Nasdaq global index offerings via an easy-to-use web interface for individual subscribers and through a web service for firms that wish to download the raw data.

This service enables customers to identify components within indexes, determine the importance of the security relative to the overall index and easily track portfolio investments based on Nasdaq indexes.
In addition to the direct availability, Nasdaq works closely with redistributors that provide this data content via their APIs and controlled terminals so that clients can continue to have a wide variety of delivery options.
