Pricing Information

You may order data for a particular symbol(s) and date(s) under our PER SYMBOL-YEAR pricing, or order data for all available symbols (both active & inactive) for a particular date(s) under our ALL SYMBOLS pricing.

Per Symbol-Year

Rates are for 1 year of data for 1 symbol. In the case of Futures and OPRA Options, a ‘symbol’ is the underlying symbol, and you will receive data for all the contracts that quoted or traded on the dates you specify. For example, ES is the underlying symbol for S&P 500 E-mini Futures, and if you asked for data for the month of January 2015, you would receive data for all the ES contracts (no matter what their expiration date) that quoted or traded during January 2015.

Minimum Order Amounts
$1,000 for new clients and $500 for returning clients.

Pick X Discount

We offer volume discounts based on the number of Symbol-Years of data you order. For example, our PICK 15 Discount applies when you order any combination of 15 Symbol-Years of data (e.g. 5 underlying futures symbols x 3 years = 15 Symbol-Years).

Complete Symbol History

For our Futures, Cash Indices and Market Indicators data, you may order all the available history we have for a particular underlying symbol.

All Symbols

Includes both active & inactive symbols.

Complete Data Set

Applies to the complete data set up to your order date.

Per Symbol-Month Unit (TickAPI® Only)

For TickAPI® clients only, a Symbol-Month Unit is a request for any number of days within the calendar month for a symbol. For example, if you request data for ABC from Jan-1-2014 through Jan-15-2014, that is one Symbol-Month Unit and you’d be charged the 1st Request fee. If you ever request data for ABC for any other day(s) in Jan 2014, you’d be charged the Each Add’l Request fee.
