Nasdaq announced today that Nasdaq Futures, Inc. (NFX) real-time market data will be available via the Bloomberg Professional service and the B-PIPE service, following the official launch of the NFX platform in mid-2015.
NFX is the exchange group's U.S.-based designated contract market (DCM), offering futures and options on key energy benchmarks, which includes oil, natural gas and U.S. power.
Bloomberg will distribute NFX order book data via the Market Depth Monitor function MDM on the Bloomberg Professional service. Bloomberg will also deliver NFX order book data via the B-PIPE service, Bloomberg's consolidated real-time market data feed, allowing efficient access for its expansive and diverse client base.
"Bloomberg is a premier market data partner for NFX as we look to expand our commodities derivatives product suite," stated Magnus Haglind, Vice President of Global Transaction and Market Services and Head of U.S. Commodities. "NFX wants to deliver more value to customers at a significantly lower cost than the competition. We applaud Bloomberg for integrating our data into Bloomberg Professional service and enabling their customers to access our innovative platform to manage their trading and hedging needs."
