Nasdaq Data-On-Demand

Access Historical Data in Seconds


Nasdaq Data-On-DemandSM provides easy and flexible access to high quality and reliable historical Level 1 data for Nasdaq- , NYSE-, NYSE American, OTCBB, OTC and other regional-listed securities—all through the cloud.

Historical tick data has become increasingly important for research, back-testing of strategies and verification of internal data. However, collecting and storing such large data sets requires substantial infrastructure and resources. Nasdaq Data-on-Demand is designed to eliminate the infrastructure and resourcing obstacles by providing a high quality, reliable source of Level 1 data.

Nasdaq Data-On-Demand provides access to consolidated Best Bid and Best Offer, and Last Sale information from the U.S. equity markets. It is available on a T+1 basis. Data can be accessed using an API. It is also available in plain text files for easy integration and analysis in programs such as Microsoft Excel.
