Questions & Answers
What is Finance Data?
There is a vast amount of finance data that comes in all sorts of variety in the world. Organizations, exchanges, regulators, traders, arbitrators, market makers and sovereign governments all generate and collect finance data. We can classify Finance into Debt markets and Equity markets. These are further classified as public markets or private markets. Private market data are data regarding private transactions (sometimes also called Over the Counter or OTC transactions) and typically not publicly disclosed. Trade data and data on prices of goods, services, and commodities (such as price of a barrel of oil) are not considered as finance data ay ALTADATA. Further, the data is segmented by geography of the trade or location of the exchange.
