NEW YORK, October 20, 2020— Nasdaq (Nasdaq: NDAQ) announced today that it is providing real-time market data to eToro, a global multi-asset investment platform empowering its more than 15 million registered users to trade and invest in a simple and transparent way.
Through this collaboration, eToro clients have access to Nasdaq Basic, which provides real-time best bid and offer information for all U.S. exchange-listed stocks, based on liquidity within the Nasdaq market center, as well as trades reported to the FINRA Trade Reporting Facility® (TRF®). This enables users to see the diverse U.S. equity markets in a single view.
“eToro was founded to empower everyone to access the financial markets,” said Tal Ben-Simon, Vice President of Product at eToro. “eToro offers its users not only a choice of which assets to trade or invest in, from commission free stocks through to crypto and other global assets, but also how to invest. They can trade directly, copy the top performing investors or invest in smart portfolios. Our work with Nasdaq furthers our goal in bringing transparency and market access to every corner of the world.”
“eToro shares our vision in lowering the barrier to entry for direct market participation and providing access for investors to real-time U.S. equity market data at significant cost savings,” said Oliver Albers, Senior Vice President and Head of Data for Nasdaq Global Information Services. “Through this new collaboration, we are excited to extend the availability of the most resilient and high-quality market data to investors worldwide.”
