NASDAQ OMX Selected as Best Data Provider


NEW YORK, June 8, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:NDAQ) has been recognized as the best data provider among the world's securities exchanges. Additionally, NASDAQ Basic has been recognized as the Best New Data Product of the Year. These recognitions of excellence were announced recently at the 8th annual Inside Market Data Awards in New York. NASDAQ's acknowledgements as a world-class data provider and developer of the best new product were determined by the readership of Inside Market Data, a key publication for senior level data and technology executives within the financial services and securities industries throughout the world.

"We are thrilled to have been recognized by our customers, prospects, and distribution partners," said Randall Hopkins, Senior Vice President, NASDAQ OMX Global Data Products. "Our team is dedicated to providing services and products of the highest quality so that we can continue to meet the growing demands of traders, investors and data distributors across the globe."

NASDAQ Basic is a real-time product that provides NASDAQ BBO (the best bid and offer with associated size on NASDAQ) and NASDAQ Last Sale (tick-by-tick price and size information for trades executed on NASDAQ or reported to the FINRA/NASDAQ Trade Reporting FacilityTM (TRF TM)). NASDAQ Basic data is based on NASDAQ trading in NASDAQ, NYSE, NYSE Amex- and regional exchange-listed securities. NASDAQ Basic can be deployed in a wide variety of investor tools –– such as charts and portfolio trackers –– and can be more quickly accessed by receiving the data directly from NASDAQ.

This is the third year since 2006 that NASDAQ OMX was selected by Inside Market Data's readership as Best Data Provider and the second consecutive year it was recognized as developer of the best new data product.
