Last Sale Data

Universal Access to Real-Time Equity Last Sale Data

The launch of Nasdaq’s Last Sale feeds provided remarkable advancements in transparency, allowing millions of people around the world to access Nasdaq validated data in real-time.

Features

The feeds are designed to:

  • Encourage universal distribution of Nasdaq real-time trade data to the public via the Internet and other electronic media.
  • Enable firms to create dynamic stock tickers, portfolio trackers and time/price graphs products for public use.
  • Help foster post-trade transparency and improves the quality of post-trade OTC data due to an innovative price validation mechanism.
  • The US-market feeds provide firms with faster access by providing data directly from the exchange, thus avoiding the latency of data from the Securities Information Processor (SIP) and Consolidated Tape Association (CTA).

Nasdaq last sale feeds provide numerous opportunities for firms and market data redistributors to create products that support the trading decisions of the investing public, such as:

  • Dynamic Stock Tickers
  • Portfolio Trackers
  • Time/Price Graphs
  • Profit and Loss Screens

We strive to ensure widespread delivery of last sale data through flexible pricing options including multiple fee schedule options, as well as monthly fee caps.
