ST. LOUIS, MO and TORONTO, Aug. 18, 2014 /CNW/ - Exegy Inc., the market data appliance company, TMX Datalinx®, the information services division of TMX Group, and the Financial Information Forum (FIF) announced today the launch of the first Canadian website to track real-time market data messaging rates at no charge for the Canadian markets.
MarketDataPeaks.ca provides real-time, minute-by-minute account of the aggregated volume of market data messages across major Canadian exchanges. The site highlights the peaks from the current day as well as historic peaks.
MarketDataPeaks.ca features the total number of messages that occur simultaneously in any given second across all live data feeds, including Toronto Stock Exchange, TSX Venture Exchange, TMX Select, Alpha, Chi-X Canada, Canadian Securities Exchange and Omega ATS. The graph displays the highest one-second peak that occurs in each minute and automatically updates every minute.
"This site is designed to provide unique information on peaks in market data to the financial community – trading firms, exchanges and regulators," says Scott Parsons, CIO at Exegy. "It helps executives stay on top of market data issues and plan for the future."
"We are pleased to be assisting in the provision and delivery of market data messaging rates to market participants," said Eric Sinclair, President, TMX Datalinx and Group Head of Information Services, TMX Group. "This valuable service provides added transparency of Canadian equity data rates."
The historic statistics from Marketdatapeaks.ca are captured and included in FIF's capacity statistics as part of the organization's collaborative efforts to address issues that impact financial technology operations and development in light of rapid changes occurring in the marketplace.
"We are delighted to be sponsors of MarketDataPeaks.ca.
