NASDAQ OMX Introduces Free Version of Market Replay to Individual Investors

Published

NEW YORK, Sept. 14, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:NDAQ) today announced it is providing free professional-grade data to the retail community through Market Replay LITE. This web-based product provides an extremely powerful replay and analysis tool that allows investors to view historic quote and trade data for NASDAQ-, NYSE- and other regional listed securities, and is part of a continuous effort to make the financial markets as transparent as possible for all investors.

Using the professional version of Market Replay as a base, LITE brings much of the functionality to the web. Among other features, LITE offers users automated symbol look-up, up to 10 unique queries per day and access to the previous three days of historic data.

As part of the expansion of the Market Replay suite, NASDAQ OMX has also unveiled Market Replay PLUS -- an enhanced version of LITE. PLUS provides an even deeper view of the market, offering users an unlimited number of queries and access to intraday data for $9.99 per month. Users can upgrade to PLUS through the LITE platform.

"Market Replay LITE and PLUS were developed in response to demand from non-professional investors who want a better understanding of the financial markets," said Randall Hopkins, Senior Vice President, NASDAQ OMX. "These innovative products give average investors quick and easy access to detailed quote and trade data, allowing them to understand what happened -- even at the millisecond level."

NASDAQ Market Replay LITE is available for free directly from the NASDAQ OMX DataStore and through StockTwits.com, an open, community-powered information service for investors.

Market Replay LITE and PLUS are web-based interface applications designed to be easily embedded on web portals to promote widespread distribution of the data to individual investors.
