How Much Does This Data Cost?

The complex nature of this data feed, as well as the extraordinary alpha it can provide, requires custom pricing from Exchange Data International. This custom pricing is determined by several factors:

  • Which exchanges are required? Subscribers only pay for the markets they need.
  • How big is your company? Startups and smaller firms can get a discount.
  • How many years of history do you need? Subscriptions that include 6 months of history are more affordable than those with 1, 2, or 3 years.
