NASDAQ Basic is a real-time product that provides customers essential quote and trade data for all U.S. exchange-listed securities in an affordable and flexible manner. NASDAQ Basic data is based on trading on NASDAQ(R), the most liquid market for all U.S.-listed equity securities.
"Bloomberg is the first market data vendor to provide NASDAQ Basic data to its customers. This addition reinforces Bloomberg's commitment to providing the best data and analytical tools for our users," said Gary Kotovets of Bloomberg.
"By integrating a cost-efficient product such as NASDAQ Basic into its network, Bloomberg has shown its willingness to continue adapting to the evolving needs of its customers," stated Randall Hopkins, Senior Vice President, NASDAQ OMX Global Data Products. "NASDAQ Basic is a lower cost alternative to NASDAQ Level 1 and similar products and Bloomberg should be applauded for recognizing their customers'
NASDAQ Basic provides NASDAQ BBO (the best bid and offer with associated size on NASDAQ); NASDAQ Last Sale (tick-by-tick price and size information for trades executed on NASDAQ and trades reported to the FINRA(TM)/NASDAQ Trade Reporting Facility(TM); and NASDAQ Official Opening and Closing Prices (set by the NASDAQ Opening and Closing
Crosses) -- standard reference prices used by indexes, mutual funds and other structured products.
