Nasdaq Smart Options

Receive just what you need of the full OPRA Feed: NBBO and Trades


The Nasdaq Smart Options data feed is designed to provide a cost-efficient, low-bandwidth alternative to the full Options Price Reporting Authority (OPRA) data feed while still delivering the necessary dataset that firms require for options trading.

Smart Options

Nasdaq Smart Options data delivery supports NBBO and Trade messages as well as administrative messages for all listed options. We filter out the Individual BBO data, reducing the noise of data overload and downsizing delivery to help you save more than 80% of the bandwidth requirement of the full OPRA feed.

Smart Benefits

  • Acquire data with 80% less bandwidth requirement over the standard OPRA data feed
  • Reduce operating costs typically required to support the full OPRA feed
  • View the same critical national best bid and offer, trade data and administrative messages without consuming the full OPRA dataset
  • Better manage constantly increasing data rates
  • Access Nasdaq Smart Options data from Nasdaq NY Metro area data centers
