Bats Global Markets (Bats) is now providing real-time stock quote and trade information via the Bats One Feed to Money.Net.
The Bats One Feed is a market data product from Bats that provides cost-effective, high-quality quote and trade information for market participants looking for comprehensive, real-time market data across all four of Bats’ US equities exchanges – BZX, BYX, EDGA and EDGX – through one license.
Money.Net began delivering the Bats One Feed last week via its comprehensive financial terminal. Money.Net customers will have the choice of using Bats data alone, or a choice of accessing a full US equity price feed from all non-Bats trading venues, which involves additional small monthly exchange fees.
“As one of the fastest-growing market data service providers, Money.Net’s low-cost approach to providing accurate, real-time market data has really resonated with investors and traders and we’re excited to partner with them,” says Bryan Harkins, Executive Vice President and Head of US Markets at Bats. “As Bats is one of the largest US equities market operators, the Bats One Feed provides a high-quality view of the US equities market and is ideal for those looking for reference data at a reasonable cost.”
“Money.Net is excited to now offer a Bats feed in addition to all of the other real-time equity price data offered to Money.Net customers,” says Morgan Downey, CEO of Money.Net. “The addition of the Bats One Feed to Money.Net allows us to provide our customers with a market data solution that provides a comprehensive view of the market in a cost-effective manner, which is important to many of our clients.”
Bats offers two versions of the Bats One Feed – the Bats One Summary Feed and Bats One Premium Feed. Both feeds deliver a unified view of the aggregated quotes (Best Bid and Offer), trades (Last Sale), and the Bats One Premium feed also provides depth information (5 levels), including size, for all four equity exchanges operated by Bats.
Consistent with Bats’ strategy of providing data at a lower cost to the industry, Bats One Feed is significantly less expensive than similar products on the market. Bats One Summary Feed is 60 per cent less expensive per professional user, about 85 per cent less expensive for an enterprise license for professional users, and 50 per cent lower for an enterprise license for non-professional users. Bats One Feed can be used as a standalone product or as a supplement to other market data products.
