Tick Data ( www.tickdata.com), the market data division of Nexa Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Penson Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ: PNSN), today announced the addition of Mexican and Korean Tick Equity Data to its offering of historical intraday market data. The new Bolsa Mexicana de Valores (BMV) Tick Equity Dataset and Korea Exchange (KRX) Tick Equity Dataset include tick-by-tick trade and quote data dating back to May 7, 2008 for equities traded on two important exchanges in expanding regions of the financial world. With more than 25 years of experience collecting, validating, cleaning, and providing historical trade and quote market data, Tick Data is considered a pioneer and leader in the field. “The regulatory and tax environments in the U.S. and Europe continue to fuel the expansion of high-frequency trading in emerging markets around the world,” said Neal Falkenberry, SVP of Nexa’s Tick Data division. “As these markets become more liquid and technologically-advanced, more of our clients can participate. As always, Tick Data looks to our clients for guidance on the future of our product offering, and they tell us that Latin America and Asia are becoming very important to their trading activity. We are happy to be able to respond with the data products they require.” Much of this expansion comes from algorithmic and automated traders who require historical market data to develop, test, and optimize their models. These traders look to Tick Data to provide research-ready data for their analysis, and Tick Data continues to seek out markets of interest to the world’s automated traders. Tick Data now covers two of the largest Latin American markets, the Brazilian BM&F Bovespa and the Mexican BMV, and the majority of trading volume in the Pan-Asian region, including Australia, Japan, Hong Kong, and now Korea, with plans to add additional Asian and Latin American markets in the future. As with all of Tick Data’s equity and options data products, the Bolsa Mexicana de Valores Tick Equity Dataset and Korea Exchange Tick Equity Dataset are fully-supported with corporate action information, and are cleaned, validated, and mapped using Tick Data’s proprietary method, with update subscriptions available on an ongoing basis.
