Constant reference data changes

The frequency of reference data changes across global markets such as session time amendments, margin movements, tick size, ticker changes and even new contract listings, mean that firms need updates as they hit the market to avoid out trades and sub-optimal trading operations.

Official vendor symbology for new intraday strike series on options can take up to two days to appear in data feeds, so on the day trading creates trade breaks which require manual intervention to clear.

For small to medium size trading firms, the ability to scale input costs to match portfolio activity and client demand, is critical to maximise returns while building up a book of business and is high on executive management agendas.

The solution - TRADEDATA Central API

TRADEDATA Central API offers customers easy and timely access to its extensive library of reference data content including intraday updates of symbology and regulatory reporting data.  Data changes include market data symbols for new strike series and amendments to contract specifications and other symbology.

TRADEDATA Central API enables a superior reconciliation environment and lowers costs and risks of trade processing and can complement existing bulk datafeed services with secure, enterprise log-ins for users to access, search and retrieve their firm's specific data content.
