Databento Adds ICE Futures Europe and ICE Endex Market Coverage
Expansion marks the company’s first international venue
SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. 18, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Databento is pleased to announce the expansion of its coverage to Europe as an authorized distributor of ICE data. This milestone coincides with the unveiling of the company’s first international venue and the introduction of the much-anticipated ICE Futures Europe iMpact (IFEU.IMPACT) and ICE Endex iMpact (NDEX.IMPACT) data services.
The data is sourced from ICE’s iMpact multicast data feed, the primary API for ICE futures and options market data. The feed is picked up at ICE’s colocation facilities at 20 Cranes Farm Road in Basildon and 350 E Cermak in Chicago and then transported over a private backbone to CyrusOne Aurora I, the site of CME’s matching engine, for capture and redistribution. This arrangement provides Databento’s users with consistent timestamping between CME and ICE’s futures markets.
