Best New Data Product of the Year
New York, NY (PRWEB) September 14, 2009
StockTwits is pleased to team with NASDAQ to offer three unique data products to the individual investor audience, free-of-charge through the month of September, via the DataJunkies blog on Stocktwits.com.
NASDAQ is excited to deliver free, transparent insight into the intricacies of the market with an easy-to-use interface, as well as quick access to market activity, through the launch of Market Replay LITE. Market Replay LITE is an extremely powerful replay and analysis tool, allowing users to view historic consolidated order book and trade data for U.S.-listed securities. Active traders can upgrade to the enhanced version, Market Replay PLUS, to gain access to an unlimited number of queries, intraday data and access to five days of historical data.
NASDAQ Velocity and Forces measures pre-trade order activity on the NASDAQ Exchange to indicate the intensity and direction of trading interest before that activity results in executions or price movement. The products are akin to the visible activity and audible noise that, historically, experienced floor brokers used on a physical trading floor to detect changes in market direction, momentum and liquidity.
Voted "Best New Data Product of the Year" by the trading community, NASDAQ Market Pathfinders will be available to the Data Junkie later this month. Pathfinders is a real-time market sentiment indicator based on the buying and selling patterns of NASDAQ market participants. Using NASDAQ trade data, this product identifies anonymous "Pathfinders" that are actively buying or selling a large volume of shares in a particular security in the anticipation of a price increase or decrease.
With more than 1,800 followers, the NASDAQ Data Junkies campaign has been very successful in delivering real-time stock quotes and information to the public. On Friday, October 2nd, StockTwits will host StockCamp at the NASDAQ MarketSite in Times Square to provide individual investors an open forum to discuss trading strategies and industry events.
