    Smart Options

    The Nasdaq Smart Options data feed is designed to provide a cost-efficient, low-bandwidth method to consume the full Options Price Reporting Authority (OPRA) data feed while still delivering the necessary dataset that firms require for options trading.

    Now available via Nasdaq Data Link APIs

    Key Benefits

    Access Options

    Access options data with optionality and flexibility for access, including on premise, cloud (streaming and rest), and via other data providers.

    Reduced Overhead & Cost Savings

    Reduce operating costs typically required to support the full OPRA feed.

    Comprehensive Data

    View the same critical national best bid and offer, trade data and administrative messages without consuming the full OPRA dataset, receiving the data you need with 80% less bandwidth requirement.

    How to Access

    Nasdaq Smart Options data delivery supports NBBO and Trade messages as well as administrative messages for all listed options. We filter out the Individual BBO data, reducing the noise of data overload and downsizing delivery to help you save more than 80% of the bandwidth requirement of the full OPRA feed.
