This article explains how to subscribe to our QUODD real time feeds, including explanations on pro vs. non-pro classification, how to sign the QUODD/Nasdaq user agreement, and what the QUODD add-on plans are.
WHO IS QUODD?
QUODD is our real time data partner. With them we're able to offer individual solutions for real-time WebSocket and REST API connections to the Nasdaq Basic and TMX QuantumFeed® and TSX Venture exchanges. For enterprise level data feeds we offer US Equities Level 1 Real Time Stocks, OPRA Real Time Options Prices, NYMEX and COMEX Real Time Futures Prices, and many others.
HOW TO I SUBSCRIBE TO QUODD FEEDS?
In order to subscribe to one of their real time feeds, you must first subscribe to the base, bronze plan on the main product page for that exchange.
For example, click the "Nasdaq Basic" link above to navigate to the main product page for that feed. Under the Pricing tab you will see a bronze plan for non-pro and pro users.
PRO V. NON-PRO ACCESS
The Pro and Non-pro classifications come directly from the exchange. It determines the exchange fee owed to the exchange and is based on your use case and profession. To determine which plan you qualify for, click "Terms & Limits" under either plan, and read the non-pro criteria.
Once you determine which plan you qualify for, click the plan name and then hit subscribe.
SIGNING THE QUODD AGREEMENT
If you subscribed to the Non-Pro plan, navigate to your account page, and sign the agreement. That will be sent to QUODD, who will review and either approve or deny your agreement in 24 hours. You will receive an email either way.
If you subscribed to the Pro plan, please message us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know you subscribed, as we need to send over a specific professional agreement for you to sign.
Once you are approved and your feed activated, you will have access to the bronze plan limits, which gives you the ability to stream a max of 50 securities at one time via a websocket connection, or request up to 100 ticker snap quotes per minute via the REST API.
NEED MORE DATA? HOW TO INCREASE YOUR LIMIT
If you need to increase either limit, you will need to subscribe to one of the QUODD add-on plans, which you can find here: https://intrinio.com/data/quodd-add-ons.
Depending on whether you signed up as a non-pro or pro, navigate to the appropriate plans, and hit "Terms & Limits" to see both your WebSocket and REST API limits for both.
If you would like to subscribe to an add-on plan, simply click the plan you wish to add, and follow the prompts to subscribe. There are no additional agreements or forms to sign, you will immediately have access to the add-on limits.
