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 for contracts for which 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. 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.
