Data Feeds

Alternative Data

Introduction

Alternative data feeds stream live alternative data into your algorithms. We add a live trading data feed for each of the alternative datasets we integrate.

Sourcing

We source alternative data feeds directly from data vendors. To view all of the integrated data vendors, see the Dataset Market.

Delivery

The delivery schedule of alternative data feeds depends on the specific data feed you're using. We inject the data into your algorithms when the vendor provides the data. For most alternative data feeds, the data is updated on a daily or hourly basis. Some data feeds, like the Tiingo News Feed or Benzinga News Feed, include a live stream. In these cases, we deliver the data as a live stream to your algorithm.

Live trading algorithms run on co-located servers racked in Equinix. Co-location reduces several factors that can interfere with your algorithm, including downtime from internet outages, equipment repairs, and natural disasters.

Live data takes time to travel from the source to your algorithm. The latency of the alternative data feeds depends on the specific data feed you're using.
