Nasdaq announces Retail Trading Activity Tracker

Nasdaq has announced the launch of a new dataset that provides reliable information into the trading activity of self-directed retail investors in the U.S. equity market.

The Retail Trading Activity Tracker tracks stocks and exchange traded funds (ETFs) traded by individuals as well as buy/sell ratios per ticker on a daily basis.

The tracker brings enhanced transparency into the trading activity of retail investors and makes it available to all market participants.

A free version of the tracker with the daily top ten most traded stocks and ETFs by share of retail activity will be available on Nasdaq Data Link and Nasdaq.com.

Launched in September 2021, Nasdaq Data Link is a cloud-based technology platform that connects the global financial community with unified access to over 250 datasets and analytics.

The platform simplifies data discovery, integration and provides secured, end-to-end data hosting through managed infrastructure and services.

The Retail Trading Activity Tracker is to be released on Nasdaq Data Link with data history from 2016 to the present day. A free list of the top ten traded securities will be updated daily with trading data from the previous day.

Oliver Albers, Senior Vice President and Head of Data, Investment Intelligence, Nasdaq, said: “The increased participation of individual investors is rapidly changing market dynamics, and the Retail Trading Activity Tracker is the first of its kind to offer general accessibility to consistent and standardized information on retail trading activity.

“The release of this new dataset underlines Nasdaq’s mission of providing greater transparency and empowering the investing public with data-driven innovation. Through the expansion of Nasdaq Data Link and its library of datasets, we aim to level the playing field and make data, and by extension, the financial markets, more transparent and accessible to all.”

Last week, Nasdaq took one step further in the build-up of its ESG offering, having launched options contracts on the OMX Stockholm 30 ESG index.

Earlier this month, Nasdaq launched an ESG version of the OMX Stockholm Benchmark Index, designed to track the performance of the securities whose issuers meet specific ESG criteria.

Nasdaq has recently launched ESG Data Hub as its latest expansion of Nasdaq’s growing suite of products aiming to support investors in their sustainable investment decisions.

The hub connects investors with expert-led ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) data sets from leading providers across a wide spectrum of areas, including gender diversity, carbon emissions, and climate risk, providing detailed and tangible intelligence on companies’ ESG profiles.
