Tick Data ( www.tickdata.com), the market data division of Nexa Technologies, Inc. ( www.nexatech.com), a subsidiary of Penson Worldwide, Inc.

“Tick Data has always listened to our clients’ needs, and provided the data required by all traders,” said Neal Falkenberry, SVP of Nexa’s Tick Data division. “Over the past ten years we have more than doubled the breadth of Futures markets for which we provide historical intraday data, but this marks the first time we have offered additional depth as well. We are excited to offer quote data for Futures, which will perfectly complement our Futures trade data set.”

Since its inception in 1984, Tick Data has provided Futures data to clients looking to develop and optimize automated trading models.
