Nasdaq Last Sale feeds provide unrivaled access to trading data globally, allowing millions of people around the world to access Nasdaq validated data in real time.

Nasdaq Last Sale data is designed to:

Product List

Nasdaq Last Sale

NLS provides real-time intraday last sale data for all securities traded in Nasdaq systems and the FINRA Trade Reporting Facility® (TRF®) operated in partnership with Nasdaq (“FINRA/Nasdaq TRF”). NLS supports a full range of U.S. exchange-listed equities—NYSE- and Amex-listed issues as well as Nasdaq-listed issues.

The Nasdaq Stock Market® has more liquidity than any other U.S. exchange, thus NLS is the most reliable and accurate resource for real-time, intraday trade data.

PSX Last Sale

Via our flexible pricing structure, firms can redistribute real-time equity prices broadly from the Nasdaq Nordic Equity exchanges.
