Quincy Data Adds NASDAQ ETFs and Extends Latency Advantage on Carteret-Aurora route to 4.11 milliseconds
Quincy Also Launches NJ Local Wireless Market Data Service
OAKLAND, Calif., June 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Quincy Data, LLC (www.quincy-data.com) has added highly liquid ETFs to its industry-leading Quincy Extreme Data (QED) service. QED now delivers the most liquid equity ETFs sourced from NASDAQ’s Carteret, NJ data center to CME Group’s data center located in Aurora, IL in only 4.11 milliseconds rack-to rack, a latency believed to shatter another industry record. ETF data is also available locally over Quincy’s NJ metro wireless service, currently connecting Carteret and Secaucus: with Weehawken and Mahwah forthcoming.
“We are extremely pleased to add ‘westbound’ market data to our six month old ‘eastbound’ CME Group offering at what we believe is the lowest latency available,” says Stephane Tyc, Quincy’s Co-Founder. “Highly liquid ETF data and microwave speed create a powerful tool for our clients to use in their hedging and trading strategies. Risk managers and traders know that fast, reliable market data is essential to their success. Quincy strives to exceed expectations for data, speed, service and reliability. With no installation charges, 3 month subscriptions, a small company discount, and an a la carte data offering, QED is a game-changer for firms with or without the means to acquire their own microwave channels.”
“You cannot find excess latency in our data, or in our rollout!” remarks Jim Considine, Quincy’s Director of Business Development and Strategy. “We implemented full FPGA feed handlers and hot failover this quarter, while extending the QED service to Carteret, Cermak and Slough data centers. The complete NJ rollout continues apace. The addition of ETF market data is an important milestone in our mission to provide trading desks large and small with the best market data solution for latency sensitive trading and risk management. Quincy’s robust infrastructure–with best-in-class elements at every step and an expanding set of data sources–creates a compelling offering to financial firms where they need it most and on terms that will please the back office as much as the front office.”
In addition to ETF data, Quincy provides CME, CBOT, NYMEX and COMEX data in CME Group’s Aurora data center and Cermak located in downtown Chicago; Secaucus NY4 and Carteret in NJ; and Slough in London.
Quincy delivers the lowest known latencies for any commercial service, including those in production and known to be in development. QED subscribers have enjoyed lowest known latency for CME, CBOT, NYMEX and COMEX data in multiple NJ colocation centers since the service went live in December 2012.
