WASHINGTON, DC (April 14, 2008) – Tick Data, (www.tickdata.com), the market data division of Nexa Technologies, Inc. (www.nexatech.com), a subsidiary of Penson Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ: PNSN – News), today announced the addition of Pan-European historical intraday market data to its Tick Equity Database. The new European data offering includes historical and update equity data from exchanges in the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, and Netherlands. With more than 20 years of experience collecting, validating, cleaning, and providing historical trade and quote market data, Tick Data is considered a pioneer and leader in the field.
As cross-border trading becomes more accessible and popular, traders now seek investment opportunities outside of the U.S. The request for additional coverage of European markets has become a client demand. Tick Data has responded to that demand by offering data sets that represent the bulk of European equity trading. All data is exchange-sourced, supported with corporate action information, with updates available on an ongoing basis.
Tick Data’s expanded European exchange list now includes extensive historical trades and quotes from Deutsche Börse, Borsa Italiana, and Bolsa de Madrid. Also included is Euronext, which consists of equity data from Amsterdam, Brussels, Lisbon and Paris. The inception dates vary by exchange and range from 2004 to as far back as 2002. This growing list supplements Tick Data’s previously available London Stock Exchange offering, with trades and quotes dating from 2000.
Neal Falkenberry, CFA-President of Tick Data said, “We are pleased to offer our clients access to data from these active equity exchanges. We remain committed to becoming the world’s central repository for historical intraday market data, and adding data representing over 75% of Europe’s equity market capitalization is a big step towards achieving that goal.”
