Nasdaq Data-On-Demand

Access Specific Sets of Historical Data in Seconds


Nasdaq Data-On-DemandSM is a cloud computing solution that provides easy and flexible access to a subset of large amounts of high quality and reliable historical Level 1 data for Nasdaq- , NYSE-, OTCBB, OTC and other regional-listed securities.

Historical tick data is becoming increasingly important for research, back-testing of strategies and verification of internal data. However, collecting and storing such large data sets requires substantial infrastructure and resources. Nasdaq Data-on-Demand is designed to eliminate those obstacles by providing a high quality, reliable source of Level 1 data.

Nasdaq Data-On-Demand provides access to consolidated Best Bid and Best Offer and Last Sale information from the U.S. equity markets and is available T+1. Data can be accessed using an API and is also available in plain text files for easy analysis in Microsoft Excel or other programs.
