Tick Data, Inc., the first commercial provider of historical intraday time series market data, today announced the addition of Forex currency data to its offering of historical intraday market data.
The new Forex Data Set includes tick-by-tick trade and quote data dating back to May 7, 2008 for over 2,000 global currency pairs.
"Spot Forex data is a top priority for many traders and analysts, making this the most anticipated addition to our product offering in years," said Neal Falkenberry, CFA, Partner and President of Tick Data, Inc. "The ability to conduct quantitative research and analysis across multiple asset types is highly important to our clients. For this reason, we believe the financial community will benefit greatly from this exciting new product."
The Forex Data Set represents Tick Data's first over-the-counter market offering, and adds a completely new asset class to a product line that also includes equities, futures, and options data. Tick Data will offer the data in three granularities; tick-by-tick trades and quotes, tick-by-tick trades, and one-minute trade-only data. As with all of Tick Data's products, the firm's TickWrite® Data Management Software is included as well.
"Over-the-counter foreign exchange trading is by far the most active, highest value market in the world; nothing comes close," said Tom Myers, Partner and SVP Business Development. "We believe our clients will be very pleased to have access to Forex data that meets the same high level of quality they have come to expect from Tick Data, Inc."
