Tokyo, Jan 10, 2013 - (ACN Newswire) - MarketPrizm, a leading provider of ultra-low latency market data and managed infrastructure services, today announced it is providing high-performance market data to SBI Japannext, via its feed handler technology - MarketPrizm API.
MarketPrizm's API offers SBI Japannext, Japan's largest PTS (Proprietary Trading System), a flexible and cost-effective data feed from Japan's primary exchanges for its operational needs. Similarly, MarketPrizm customers are also able to access Raw and MPAPI data from SBI Japannext.
MarketPrizm API normalises exchange data at the source at ultra-low latencies, while capturing all fields that are disseminated via the exchange feed.
