NEW YORK, June 16, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:NDAQ) today introduced the TotalView Preferred Partners program, an initiative that recognizes the top distributors of NASDAQ OMX's premier U.S. data feed.
NASDAQ TotalView displays the full order book for NASDAQ market participants and displays every single quote and order at every price level in NASDAQ-, NYSE-, NYSE Amex- and regional-listed securities, allowing users to make better informed investment decisions. NASDAQ is the most liquid market for all U.S.-listed equity securities -- making it the gold source for U.S. equity data. In April 2009, NASDAQ's matched share of U.S. equity volume was more than any other U.S. exchange for the twenty-fifth consecutive month.
"The TotalView Preferred Partners program gives us the opportunity to acknowledge the top distributors of TotalView, the premier source of NASDAQ OMX data in the U.S.," said Randall Hopkins, Senior Vice President NASDAQ OMX Global Data Products. "We are pleased to recognize members of the TotalView Preferred Partners program for their commitment to provide their customers with the best possible view of the NASDAQ market."
All TotalView external distributors are eligible to become a TotalView Preferred Partner based on the scope and breadth of their distribution of the data. TotalView Preferred Partners receive elevated marketing support and cross promotion from NASDAQ OMX. Further information on qualifying as a TotalView Preferred Partner is available on http://www.nasdaqtrader.com/Trader.aspx?id=TotalView.
As a result of the evaluation, the following 12 firms -- listed in alphabetical order -- were named to the TotalView Preferred Partners program:
* Assent LLC * Charles Schwab * E*TRADE FINANCIAL Corp. * Genesis Securities, LLC * Goldman Sachs * Lightspeed Trading, LLC * Lime Brokerage LLC * Neonet * RealTick, by Townsend Analytics * Scottrade, Inc. * Sterling Trader, Inc. * TradeStation Securities
