Beginning Monday, June 12, NYSE Group, Inc. (NYSE: NYX ) will offer a free 60-day trial for its new market data product, NYSE InfoTools as part of a promotion introducing this innovative suite of investor information products.
NYSE InfoTools is a uniquely applicable information product designed to provide retail and institutional investors with in-depth analysis of NYSE-listed stock trading activity.
NYSE InfoTools provides investors with unparalleled levels of transparency and detail for NYSE listed trading and order flow. By offering users the capability to actively monitor the composition of executed order flow through real-time datafeeds and detailed historical reports, InfoTools greatly improves investors' ability to examine and assess NYSE market activity and compare it with historic norms.
"InfoTools is a product unlike anything else available in today's marketplace," said Ron Jordan, Senior Vice President, Market Data. "The free 60-day pilot gives investors of all types and sophistication the opportunity to experience the possibilities and value of InfoTools risk free. This product allows investors trading in any of the 4,000 plus NYSE-listed issues to dissect the NYSE market in a truly innovative way."
During the initial phase of InfoTools, two datafeeds, two end-of-day data files and complete 2006 monthly historical data files will be available to participants free of charge. ReTrac, the first of these datafeeds, provides real-time monitoring of retail executions, while the second datafeed, ProTrac, provides real-time monitoring of program trade executions on the Exchange. Each feed is augmented by a separate end-of-day file that provides a comprehensive summary of the day's activity and an increased level of detail further enhancing investors' ability to asses NYSE market trends.
The ReTrac end-of-day report, or ReTrac EODSM is a thorough summation of the total amount of shares bought and sold by retail investors and the ProTrac EODSM summarizes the amount of program trades executed under index arbitrage strategies from all other program trading. Both datafeeds and end-of-day reports are available for the previous six months of trading at no additional charge.
