PHLX Depth of Market Data Feed Now Available in Production
What you need to know:
What is PHLX Depth of Market?
PHLX Depth of Market (PHLX Depth) is a direct, low-latency market data feed, pending Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approval, that is designed to provide full depth of quotes, depth of orders, net order imbalance information for the opening cross and last sale data directly to subscribers.
PHLX Depth is similar to the NASDAQ Options Markets ITCH to Trade Options (ITTO) data feed. For easier development, the specification is similar to the ITTO v3.0 specification.
As with other PHLX market data feeds, NASDAQ OMX will support three multicast groups for PHLX Depth, also called the "A feed", "B feed" and "C feed". NASDAQ OMX will provide local redundancy in the New York Metro Area ("A feed") and ("B feed"), while using the Mid-Atlantic Region ("C feed") for disaster recovery in the event that order entry is switched from the New York Metro Area.
What is the bandwidth recommendation for PHLX Depth?
PHLX Depth will be offered in uncompressed version only. The bandwidth recommendation is 250 Megabits (Mb) per data stream.
What do firms need to do to connect to PHLX Depth?
What are the fees for PHLX Depth?
PHLX data feed fees were previously announced in Data News #2012-7
