Market data feeds are great for people or businesses that are following the stock market closely. With some market data feeds there is latency, but with better market data feeds the latency is reduced to milliseconds. Market data feeds are a consolidated source of data compiled from several stock exchanges. The information is not only stock quotes. You can receive instantaneous information on equities, currencies, futures, indices, options, mutual funds and commodities. Market data feeds are displayed in various delivery options such as TCP and UDP protocols, internet delivery or compressed and uncompressed streams of data. You can program these feeds to show you as much or as little information as you need.
It is easy to create a stock market data feed and store that historical data with Mozenda.
