Cboe Global Markets today announced that its market data and trade analytics are now available through Cboe Data Shop API, arming customers with a more robust offering. The newest addition provides subscribers with more tools to leverage API capabilities, as well as additional benchmarks for monitoring execution quality.
Available at datashop.cboe.com, Cboe Data Shop is a dedicated paid data site that is quite user friendly and allows subscribers to customize their data packages based on their needs. To ensure easy interaction with other websites or programs, the data service will distribute Cboe’s information through a suite of four application programming interfaces.
Effective today, market participants will be able to pull market information on demand with an API subscription that facilitates customization of access for trading firms’ specific needs and budgets.
The new Cboe DataShop APIs also includes the Time & Sales API which allow subscribers to access data that has been only available to major U.S. options exchanges and a few large brokers.
Catherine Clay, VP and Global Head of Information Solutions at Cboe Global Markets, noted: “The APIs allow data to seamlessly flow into a firm’s or individual’s applications, fitting access to data and analytics within their existing workflows.”
Cboe DataShop provides users with direct and immediate access to a comprehensive set of market intelligence for options, equities, indexes and exchange-traded funds (ETFs).
Historical tick data is used primarily for program and automated trading, portfolio management and valuations. It also plays a vital role in supporting the compliance, accounting and audit functions of financial institutions while providing a way for market participants to monetize their trade data.
