ASX’s flagship market information service, MarketSource, provides real-time information from ASX’s trading and information systems.
It covers price, volume, market depth and full order book detail for all ASX-operated markets, as well as over-the-counter transactions reported to ASX. To find out more about accessing MarketSource, contact an ASX Market Information account manager.
Direct access to MarketSource provides the fastest connectivity to price data. Information is fed directly into MarketSource from the ASX Trade and the ASX Trade24 trading systems. Direct access ensures that market professionals and distributors receive real-time information.
Users can connect to MarketSource through several different methods, including the premium ultra–low latency ASX ITCH protocol, which offers time-stamping to the nanosecond. Co-location options are also available in the Australian Liquidity Centre for time-sensitive clients.
MarketSource can also be accessed indirectly by subscribing to information services from third-party vendors.
Vendors provide a choice of real-time, delayed or end-of-day data. Third-party vendors can also provide information relating to other exchanges, index providers or other asset classes in a single common format and communication channel. They provide a convenient and cost-effective option for those customers that are less time-sensitive.
