Data & Technology - Overview

The Data & Technology Committee brings together the impacts of market trends, innovation and regulation on market data and technology. Each month, an industry expert is invited to present a “Spotlight Topic”, setting the stage for group discussion on a variety of timely market data technology topics. Meetings also include a presentation of monthly Market Data Capacity Reports, a summary of exchange and SIP technical notices and updates, and a review of recent or upcoming regulations that impact market data. 

Market Data Capacity
Recognized by the press and the financial service community at large, FIF works with member firms to prepare and publish the definitive statistics on market data capacity. Financial institutions, vendors, and originators come together to share their data and expectations for future message traffic. FIF also tracks market data capacity with an eye towards future growth, providing members linear regression analysis projecting future market data traffic in options and equities. Both CTA and UTP SIPs submit average latency statistics on a monthly basis.
