Lime Brokerage has rolled-out a low-latency high-speed options data feed, Real Time Data, from the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE).
The new data feed is built upon a technology Lime Brokerage has developed for the US equities markets and its ultra-low latency Citrius options data platform.
The joint offering is expected to provide non-CBOE members and sponsored members with a real-time, low-latency alternative to the consolidated feed available from OPRA (Options Price Reporting Authority).
Apart from providing data from all eight US equity options exchanges, Lime also provides data from OPRA’s consolidated feed.
Lime’s data offerings connect directly to the sources, optimize connections and provide superior flexibility for integration into client systems.
Lime Brokerage president and CEO Jeff Wecker said that, as the marketplace continues to evolve, there will be increasing demand within the industry for options exchanges to deliver faster data to all market participants, helping to level the playing field.
“We’re happy to be working with the CBOE, the cornerstone of the US options markets, to broaden its customer base for high speed data beyond its membership,” Wecker said.
