      Market Data

 

 
  We provide real-time streaming market data for the prices described in the table below. You can also choose to receive delayed market data. Please note that free live market data (updated every three minutes) is available in the Account Window within Trader Workstation (TWS) for contracts which you currently own even if you do not currently hold market data subscriptions.  

 

 
 
 
All customers initially receive 100 concurrent lines of real-time market data (which can be displayed in TWS or via the API) and always have a minimum of 100 lines of data. This is generally more than enough data for non-professional and some professional clients. However, we do offer access to more for those who desire it. Customers can increase the allowance of simultaneous quotes windows by purchasing monthly Quote Booster packs.

How Market Data is Allocated

 
 
 

 

All customers initially receive 100 concurrent lines of real-time market data (which can be displayed in TWS or via the API) and always have a minimum of 100 lines of data.  (This is a lot of data for an individual investor, however, we offer additional data to meet the needs of nearly all investors including individuals, fund managers, and institutions.) 

Follow this link to get the details on how we allocate market data and how you can figure out the number of concurrent lines that you will receive including how your account balance and commissions can help you to add lines without buying booster packs (view example 2 for this info).  

 

 
 
 

 

Professional versus Non-Professional

 
 
 

 

Most exchanges and data vendors classify customers as either non-professional or professional. By default, organizations such as corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships and any account where the data is used for more than personal investment purposes is deemed to be professional. In addition, private persons may be considered professional if they are registered as a security or investment advisor, or act in a similar capacity. A trader who is employed by a financial services business may also be considered a professional. Click here for more information about non-professional qualifications.

 

Clients choosing to subscribe to US non-professional real-time market data will have the USD 10 (or non-USD equivalent) monthly market data subscription fee waived if they spend USD 30 (or USD equivalent) or more in commission for the month.

Why do we offer so many different types of market data subscriptions? Do you have to subscribe to any market data?

Our clients range from individual investors to fund managers and institutions. In order to meet the demands of our diverse client base, we offer a very wide variety of research and news subscriptions (none of which are required) to choose from.

You are welcome to subscribe to any (or none) of the available options that you wish and you may cancel them at any time.  

We offer both a la carte and bundled services including IBIS, our comprehensive news and fundamentals research platform add-on to the TWS.

For more information about the IBIS add-on for TWS, please give us a call at 1-800-50-PLACE or 1-919-719-7200. 

 
 
 

Market data is available for your convenience. You are not required to subscribe to market data.

When you subscribe to market data you will be charged (monthly) fees by our clearing firm (or the exchanges). We pass these fees on to you without any additional markup.

Under certain circumstances, you may be charged additional fees (by our clearing firm or the exchanges). Place Trade passes these fees on to our clients without any additional markup. Please note that Place Trade does not receive any form of benefit or compensation on market data subscriptions and does not mark up any securities, take credits or rebates from spreads, receive soft dollar payments or any other hidden fees that allow some firms to charge what appear to be lower commissions or flat rate commissions. We are not nickel and diming you, we are being transparent and offering the lowest possible overall trading cost to our clients. If you think that our costs are high, please understand that we are actually showing you what you are paying for and are not making up the difference where you will be unlikely to notice it (like within a price spread instead of passing the lower price on to you). 

When considering fees please consider the overall low cost of trading, ultra low margin rates, access to experienced financial consultants and great customer service that you enjoy at Place Trade. We believe that we offer the lowest overall trading cost of any full-service broker.
