Interactive Data Enriches Global OTC Content Through Real-time Feed

Interactive Data, a provider of financial market data, analytics and related solutions, has further enhanced its rich source of global broker and other over-the-counter (OTC) content available via its low-latency consolidated feed, PlusFeed. PlusFeed now offers essential and significant OTC content from inter-dealer brokers and market makers to complement its coverage of global exchange-traded securities.

Content packages from BGC Market Data, Continental Capital Markets (Conticap), Tradition and Tullett Prebon Information are now available via PlusFeed. These include coverage of foreign exchange (FX), money markets, fixed income, energy and commodities data, sourcing hard-to-find prices in developing products and regions. The data can be used in areas such as pre-trade analytics, mark-to-market, algorithmic trading, portfolio management, risk management and compliance.

“Due to the changing global market dynamics and the increasing adoption of cross-asset trading strategies, it is extremely important that buy- and sell-side institutions have real-time, low-latency pricing transparency into both exchange-traded and OTC markets,” said Don Finucane, vice president of product management and OTC data services at Interactive Data. “When combined with Interactive Data’s extensive coverage of global exchange-traded securities, the availability of such rich OTC market data from the world’s leading inter-dealer brokers can allow institutions to paint a comprehensive picture of the overall global financial markets in real time.”
