Qatar Exchange today announced the launch of 3 new market data products geared towards market professionals. A set of tools designed to provide market participants with greater market transparency; the new products allow for more accurate market tracking and encourage informed investment decisions.
In addition to the existing XDP real-time data feed, that QE provides to close to 30 data vendors, brokers, TV channels and brokerage firms, the following data products are now available :
- Snapshot data feed – Real-time snapshot trading data is available on a per security basis and may be utilized by listed companies for investor relations purposes or by firms offering a broad commentary on the Qatari economy via online services.
- Tick Data history – QE offers ‘tick data history’ i.e. data files containing all trades and best bid and asks for all listed securities across a trading day. The data product is provided to participants performing detailed technical analysis and/or engaging in sophisticated trading strategies.
- Index constituent data – QE provides daily index constituent files for those benchmarking to or replicating any of QE’s indices. The product provides detailed corporate actions treatment information and enables the market to replicate the index calculation with the inclusion of daily divisor figures.
In conjunction with the additional data products, the QE website now has a dedicated Data Products tab that provides information on all market data services. Participants interested in any of these services should contact email@example.com
A further website change is to bring all market statistics under a single tab. Market Statistics tab will encompass existing reports (Financial Indicators/Trading Reports/Statistical Reports) whilst also including information (including constituents) on all QE indices. The tab also includes a page headed ‘Market Performance’ where users can graph benchmark index performance.
Commenting on these additions to QE market data services, Qatar Exchange CEO, Andre Went: “These data products address existing client demand, yet they’ll also act to support new market initiatives and products going forward. We’re allowing firms to capture traded prices in a simple manner so as to integrate within their online services, whilst also permitting index replication techniques and sophisticated back history testing for the professionals. Our aim is to continually increase market transparency and allow efficient market interaction.”
