Alternative Streaming Quotes for US Equities

Overview: 

The SEC Vendor Display Rule requires that brokers give clients access to the NBBO at the point of order entry. In order to provide users with free live streaming market data, we cannot display this free stream when entering an order without the client subscribing to the paid NBBO.

Background: 

Under the Rule 603(c) of Regulation NMS (Vendor Display Rule), when a broker is providing quotation information to clients that can be used to assess the current market or the quality of trade execution, reliance on non-consolidated market information as the source of that quotation would not be consistent with the Vendor Display Rule.

Therefore and according to FINRA's enforcement of the SEC rule, any client of a broker that is purchasing real-time quotes must buy the NBBO real-time services when making trading decisions.

All clients have access to streaming US equity quotes from the four CBOE exchanges and IEX at no charge. Since this data does not include all markets, we cannot show this quote when entering parameters for a US stock quote. Order routing will not change based on what is shown on the screen. If one is subscribed to NBBO quotes or not, by default the trade will still take place with the assistance of the SMART order router designed to provide the best price for the order.

Please see the sample screenshots below from TWS Classic and TWS Mosaic for what occurs when placing an order without the NBBO streaming subscription for US equities.

快照市场数据

背景

符合一定要求的IBKR客户可选择提交单次请求,要求接收某个金融产品的实时报价。该服务被称为“快照报价”。传统报价服务会持续更新实时报价,而快照报价不会,这是它与传统报价服务的不同之处。对于不经常交易且不希望根据延时报价下单的客户,快照报价的价格更有竞争力。有关该报价服务的更多信息如下。

 

报价项目

快照报价包括以下数据:        

  • 最后价格
  • 最后交易量
  • 最后交易所
  • 当前买价-卖价
  • 每笔当前买价-卖价的交易量
  • 每笔当前买价-卖价的交易所

IBKR富时(FTSE)指数

IBKR不会对富时集团(FTSE)发布的指数提供实时指数水平。这是由于FTSE会要求IBKR支付过高的许可费用。

受此影响的指数为FTSE 100和FTSE MIB 40。

您可分别参看IBKR差价合约IBUK100和IBIT40的“最后价”,其为差价合约报价的中点,也是与指数相关之期货合约成交价格准确的实时反映。

具体来说,指数差价合约报价以综合指数为基础,通过对相关近月期货价格进行公允价值反向调整进行计算。

在期货市场,公允价值是期货合约的均衡价格。该价格考虑以下因素:即,投资者支付合理水平的利息,及投资者由于持有期货而非底层股票放弃股息所应获得的补偿。要创建综合指数,公允价值调整需反向进行。

所得结果不一定与现金指数的值完全相同,因为期货的交易价格可能会高于或低于其公允价值。但如上所述,其为指数相关之市场行情准确的实时反映。

虽然无法在TWS中直接将(比如说)IBUK100与FTSE 100进行比较(我们不会显示FTSE 100),但您可通过对比(比如说)IBUS500和S&P 500观察其它指数差价合约与现金指数之间的关系。

FTSE Indices at IBKR

IBKR does not make available real-time index levels for indices published by the FTSE Group. This is due to the disproportionately high licensing fees FTSE would require of IBKR.

Affected indices are the FTSE 100 and the FTSE MIB 40.

You may instead refer to the “Last” prices for IBKR CFDs IBGB100 and IBIT40 respectively, which are the mid-points of the CFD quotes, and an accurate real-time reflection of traded prices for the futures contracts related to these indices.

Specifically, the Index CFD quotes are based on synthetic indices calculated by back-adjusting the price of the related near-month future for fair value.

In the futures market, fair value is the equilibrium price for a futures contract. It is the price at which an investor effectively pays the appropriate rate of interest, and is compensated for the dividends he forgoes by holding the future rather than the underlying shares. To create the synthetic indices, the fair value adjustment is reversed.

The result is not necessarily exactly the same value as the cash index, in particular because the future may trade above or below its fair value. But as noted above, it is an accurate real-time reflection of the markets related to the index.

While you cannot compare e.g. the IBGB100 directly to the FTSE 100 in TWS (since we do not display the latter), you can observe the relationship between other Index CFDs and cash indices by comparing, for example, the IBUS500 to the S&P 500 index.

市场数据 - 最低资产要求

简介

根据政策,为了最小化资金水平较低的账户发生保证金不足从而面临强制清算的可能性,IBKR对订阅实时市场数据设定了最低资产要求。

具体要求如下:满足订阅数据的初始资产要求后,账户只要有足够支付订阅费用的资金并且资产保持在维持水平以上便可持续享受订阅服务。 一旦资产跌至维持水平以下,账户须至少将资产提高到初始水平才能恢复订阅。

尽管通过IBKR订阅实时报价并不作为客户进行交易的一个条件,但对于已订阅数据的客户,我们建议其尽可能地将资产保持在维持水平以上,以避免发生波动影响订阅的连续性。

初始与维持资产要求会因账户类型不同而不同,具体请见下方表格。

1 以美元计价,但对基础货币为非美元的账户可按美元等值金额应用。

2 为启动订阅或跌到维持水平以下之后恢复订阅所需要的资产金额。

3 为启动订阅之后任何月份续订所需要的资产金额。

Market Data - Minimum Equity Threshold

INTRODUCTION

As a matter of policy, and to minimize the likelihood of a low-balance account falling out of margin compliance and being subject to forced liquidations, IBKR enforces a minimum equity requirement as a prerequisite for subscribing to real-time market data.

This requirement works as follows: Once an account has met the initial equity requirement necessary to subscribe to data, it is allowed to maintain those subscriptions as long as it has the funds available to pay for those subscriptions and its equity remains above the maintenance level.  Once equity falls below the maintenance level, it will be required to restore equity to at least the initial level before resuming subscriptions.

While clients are not required to subscribe to real-time quotes through IBKR as a condition of trading, those that do are encouraged to maintain equity well above the maintenance level to avoid any fluctuations that would impair continuity of subscriptions.

Initial and maintenance equity thresholds vary by account type and are outlined in the table below.

 

EQUITY MINIMUMS

Market Data Equity Thresholds1
Account Type Initial2

Individual $2,000 $500
Financial Advisor $500 $500
Friends & Family Advisor $200 $200
Introducing Broker Clients $200 $200
Individual client of IB India $500 $100

1 Denominated in USD, but applied in USD equivalent for accounts with a Base Currency other than USD.

2 Represents amount necessary to initiate a subscription or restore subscription after falling below maintenance level.

3 Represents amount necessary to qualify for subscription renewal in any month following initiation.

Connecticut Sales and Use Tax

The state of Connecticut imposes a sales and use tax which is applicable to online access to information including all data and access fees.

The tax rate as of 2017 is 1% and is applicable to clients with the state of legal residency of Connecticut or a Connecticut permanent/resident address.

The sales and use tax will be applied to all research and market data subscriptions as well as special connections such as VPN, IB Gateway, Extranet and Dedicated Leased Lines.

The sales and use tax will be passed through to client accounts at the time of the subscription billing. The tax is only applicable if a monthly fee is charged, therefore should an account receive a waiver the sales and use tax will similarly be waived.

 

 

Delayed Market Data Timing

Overview: 

Market data vendors typically offer exchange data in two categories, real-time and delayed. Real-time market data is disseminated as soon as the information is publicly available. Delayed market data is on a time lag that is usually 10-20 minutes behind real-time quotes.

Some exchanges allow delayed data to be displayed without any market data subscription, free of charge. A list of the exchanges we provide delayed data for at no cost and without formal request (i.e., the delayed data will be displayed upon entry of the product symbol on the trading platform) are outlined in the table below. The table also includes the corresponding real-time subscription, the fees for which are posted on IBKR's public website

Please Note:

  • Delayed quotes are not provided for U.S. stocks on live accounts due to FINRA regulations.
  • Delayed quotes should be used for indicative purposes and not necessarily for trading. The times mentioned may be subject to further delays without notice.

Chicago Personal Property Tax

Chicago has a personal property tax which applies to a non-possessory computer lease by a Chicago resident. The Chicago tax authorities have ruled that tax is to be applied in cases where a customer pays for electronic research/use of an interactive site. The passive receipt or streaming of information is not subject to the tax.

Clients whose permanent residential address or principal business address is Chicago will have this tax passed through to their accounts.

The tax rate, as of October 2017, is 9%. The tax will be charged on the research and news feeds a client is subscribed to. Should a research and news feed be eligible to a waiver based upon commissions generated, the tax will not be applied.

As of October 2017, research and news subscriptions which would be subject to the tax would include

Base IBIS Research Platform and the IBIS Research Essentials Subscription Bundle
Cusip
Dow Jones News Service
Dow Jones Real Time News
US Press Release Feed
Reuters Global Newswire
Reuters StreetEvents Calendars
Reuters Fundamentals
Reuters Basic Newfeed
Morningstar Equity, ETF and Credit Reports
Wall Street Horizons
Zacks Equity Research Reports

The above list is provided on a best efforts basis and is subject to change. Clients will be responsible for any pass through tax regardless of any discrepancy from the list provided above.
