Databento Launches the Industry’s First US Equities Bundle with Zero License Fees

SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Databento is pleased to announce the launch of its first US equities bundle, Databento Equities Basic. This dataset is a bundle of US equities proprietary feeds from NYSE Chicago, NYSE National, IEX, and MIAX Pearl Equities, which are free to license for distribution, display, and non-display applications and is ideal for web apps, brokerages, systematic trading, and cloud-based environments.

The data is captured and distributed at the company’s Equinix NY4 colocation and is available on a real-time and historical basis with its Python, Rust, and C++ clients and market data APIs. Databento Equities Basic is the first of several US equities bundles the company plans to release in the coming months.

“We’re excited to launch the first equities bundle of its kind in the industry,” said Christina Qi, CEO at Databento. “This is the industry’s first multi-venue prop feed consolidation that has zero distribution and non-display fees, filling a significant gap in the market for real-time US equities data. In contrast, non-display fees alone for the SIPs run over $100,000 per year.”
