The initial release of the InfoTools menu of products consists of:
ReTrac, or Retail Tracker, is available as a real-time datafeed providing investors the ability to identify retail share volume as it is executed on the NYSE and allowing investors to determine the amount of volume, on a stock-by-stock basis, that is attributable to retail order flow. The ReTrac end-of-day file contains a summary of that day's ReTrac activity, and for each stock it further categorizes the retail volume into buys and sells.
ProTrac, or Program Tracker, is available as a real-time datafeed providing investors the ability to identify program trading share volume as it is executed on the NYSE and allowing investors to determine the amount of program trading volume, on a stock-by-stock basis, that is attributable to program trading order flow. The ProTrac end-of-day file contains a summary of that day’s program trading activity, and for each stock it further categorizes the program trading activity into the amount that was executed as part of index arbitrage program trading strategies from that of all non-index arbitrage program trading strategies.
