The Nasdaq TotalView and Nasdaq Basic offerings will now be available from LD4, which is located in Slough, allowing UK-based firms direct access to US market data from a more convenient location.
The move is part of Nasdaq’s efforts to bring US proprietary equities to a larger audience. Any clients that already have access to Nasdaq through the LD4 site will be able to receive US market data feeds through their existing connections.
Jeff Kimsey, head of global data products at Nasdaq, said: “We continue to focus on working closely with our clients around the world in order to help them gain secure, efficient access to our markets.”
John Knuff, general manager for financial services at Equinix, added: “The financial services ecosystem in London and New York are at the heart of global trading. By providing additional market data to the London-based community via Equinix's LD4 data centre, Nasdaq is providing participants with the richest information available to ensure increased business performance.”
