SIX Financial Information Enhances OTC Equities Coverage With Real-Time Level 1 and Level 2 Pricing Data from OTC Markets Group
ZURICH, Switzerland – SIX Financial Information today announced the availability of real-time prices for OTC equity securities from OTC Markets Group (OTCQX: OTCM), the leading source of market data for nearly 10,000 equity securities.
OTC Markets Group, operator of Open, Transparent and Connected financial marketplaces, provides real-time best bid/best offer and size data along with full quote depth on OTCQX®, OTCQB® and OTC Pink® securities. It also delivers real-time trade data from OTC Markets Group’s OTC Link® ATS, a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission-registered Alternative Trading System.
“Best execution requirements are the new normal, and bringing data from one of the richest sources of OTC equity data to our customers is just one way that SIX Financial Information is helping our customers meet their regulatory and compliance requirements,” said Dirk Sebald, Head of Product Management and Marketing. “As trading activity increasingly moves away from exchanges, coverage of important ATS venues like OTC Markets Group’s OTC Link ATS becomes necessary to provide a complete picture of the market.”
“OTC Market Group’s Real-Time+ product provides SIX Financial Information’s global customer base with convenient, cost-effective access to the data they need to analyze, value and trade OTCQX, OTCQB and OTC Pink securities,” said Matthew Fuchs, Managing Director of Market Data & Strategy at OTC Markets Group. “As one of the leading global providers of financial information, including real-time consolidated market data services, SIX is an important distributor of US OTC market data to the worldwide investment community.”
OTC Markets Group’s Real-Time+ product suite provides investors and market professionals a complete actionable data-set for the trading of OTCQX, OTCQB and OTC Pink securities, including real-time Level 1 and Level 2 quotes and market participant and trader identifiers. It also offers real-time trade data from OTC Markets Group’s OTC Link® ATS, as well as information on individual securities.
