Market Data Fees



Subscription Billing

Market data and research subscription fees are assessed beginning on the day of subscription and the first business day of each subsequent month for as long as the services are active. Subscription fees are assessed based on the number of users subscribed to the service on an account. If multiple users are subscribed, there will be multiple charges assessed to the account. There will be additional charges for Snapshot data requests (see below).

Snapshot Data and Delayed Data

By default, users will receive free delayed market data for available exchanges. If needed, users can subscribe to real-time streaming market data for the prices listed in the tables below. Once a subscription is active, the delayed market data will be replaced with the real-time quotes. In addition, clients who do not need streaming real-time quotes will have the ability to request snapshot data from multiple exchanges worldwide. This request will provide a static quote for the instrument. U.S. listed equities are USD 0.01 per quote request and all other instruments are USD 0.03 per quote request. As a courtesy, accounts will receive a waiver of USD 3.00 total for the first two calendar months after the account is funded and USD 1.00 per month thereafter to spend on snapshot quotes.

Subscription fees are assessed based on the number of users subscribed to the service on an account. If multiple users are subscribed, there will be multiple charges assessed to the account.

We provide real-time streaming market data for the prices listed in the sections below. For the exchanges which we provide, you will automatically receive free delayed market data for financial instruments for which you do not currently hold market data subscriptions. In addition, for clients who do not need streaming real-time quotes for US listed stocks you can choose a per quote option where you only pay USD 0.01 per quote request. With this service, you will also receive US futures (if you are a Non-Professional and have US Futures trading permissions) and US bonds, as well as OTC Markets, Dow Jones Indices and CBOE Market Data Express Indices. Refer to the North America > United States market data fees table below for details.



Professional versus Non-Professional

Most exchanges and data vendors classify clients as either non-professional or professional. By default, organizations such as corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships and any account where the data is used for more than personal investment purposes is deemed to be professional. In addition, private persons may be considered professional if they are registered as a security or investment advisor, or act in a similar capacity. A trader who is employed by a financial services business may also be considered a professional. Click here for more information about non-professional qualifications.

Market Data Display




How Market Data is Allocated

In order to receive real-time market data, customers must be a subscriber to market data. All clients initially receive 100 concurrent lines of real-time market data (which can be displayed in TWS or via the API) and always have a minimum of 100 lines of data. After the first month of trading, the quantity of market data is allocated using the greater value of:

  • USD monthly commissions divided by 8
  • USD equity multiplied by 100 divided by $1,000,000
    (rounded down to the nearest integer)
  • 100
  • Example 1:
    In month two, your account shows the following values: USD Monthly Commissions: $16, USD Equity: $950,000
    Using the calculations above, you would still receive the minimum 100 lines of data, since: $16/8 = 2
    $950,000 x 100 / $1,000,000 = 95
  • Example 2:
    In month three, your account shows the following values: USD Monthly Commissions: $500, USD Equity: $1,245,000
    Using the calculations above, you would receive 124 lines of data, since: $500/8 = 62.5
    $1,245,000 x 100 / $1,000,000 = 124.5, rounded down to 124.

Deep Data Allotment

The number of symbols that can be viewed simultaneously via the TWS deep book windows (including BookTrader, Market Depth and ISW) is determined as follows: one unique symbol for every 100 allowed lines of market data, with a minimum of three and a maximum of 60. For example, a client with the default allowance of 100 lines of data will be able to simultaneously view deep data for three different symbols. Note that multiple deep book windows for the same symbol can be opened without impacting market data limits. Continuing this example, this client could open the symbol IBKR in BookTrader, Market Depth and ISW and still be able to view deep data for two more symbols. A client who, based on commissions, equity or other criteria, is allowed 500 tickers will be able to simultaneously view deep data for five unique symbols. Note that this number may change month to month if the number of allowed tickers for your account changes.


Snapshot

The Snapshot capability allows users to request a singular instance, non-streaming quote of market data for an individual stock. Snapshot quotes do not update and do not refresh on their own. They are an alternative to streaming quotes as users are charged on a per request basis as opposed to a monthly flat fee. U.S. listed equities are USD 0.01 per request and all other instruments are USD 0.03 per request. Only customers subscribed to US Securities Snapshot and Futures Value Bundle or Professional US Securities Snapshot Bundle will be eligible for capping regarding the U.S. listed equities. No other instruments are eligible for capping.

Disclosures

  • * FREE TRIAL - Receive free for a 30 day period from date of subscription. The free trial subscription will terminate once the 30 day period is over. Once the trial data has terminated, the account may elect to re-subscribe to continue receiving the data. Should the trial data terminate mid-month and the election is made to re-subscribe, a full month charge will be levied as the exchanges do not prorate fees. For example, an account subscribing to a service subject to a free trial on October 15 will receive data for free until November 14. Should the account wish to continue receiving data past the 14th, the account must log into Account Management and re-subscribe once the data has terminated. The re-subscription will result in a full month charge for November. This data will then continue until the account unsubscribes from the service.
  • Market Data and Research Subscription Termination - If you do not log into Trader Workstation (TWS) for 60 days, you will be notified that your active market data and research subscriptions will expire at the end of the current month. You can avoid subscription termination by logging into TWS or by choosing to continue the subscriptions on the Market Data and Research pages in Account Management.
  • Market data subscription costs will not be pro-rated. Users who subscribe to or unsubscribe from data mid-month will be charged at the full month rate.

Non-Professional Subscriber - A "Non-professional Subscriber" is any natural person (the definition of a natural person excludes corporations, trusts, organizations, institutions and partnership accounts) whom a market data vendor has determined qualifies as a "Nonprofessional Subscriber" and who is not:

  1. Registered or qualified with: the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Commodities Futures Trading Commission, any state securities agency, any securities exchange or association, or any commodities or futures contract market or association, nor
  2. Engaged as an "investment advisor" as that term is defined in Section 201(11) of the Investment Advisor's Act of 1940 (whether or not registered or qualified under that Act), nor
  3. Employed by a bank or another organization that is exempt from registration under Federal and/or state securities laws to perform functions that would require him or her to be so registered or qualified if he or she were to perform such functions for an organization not so exempt.

Any person who does meet the above criteria (a, b, & c) is considered a Professional Subscriber.
