COMEX Historical Tick Data | Full Order Book Raw and Replay nanoBooks

The importance of high availability COMEX tick data cannot be underestimated by anyone considering passive market making algorithms or active liquidity removal strategies.

The methods deployed may use genetic algorithms, deep learning neural networks or classical machine learning models but in a universe described by price, volume and time the value of multiple price level data is denuded without precise time. The ready availability of datasets used to retrain and recalibrate in a consistent method is often undervalued.

  • Hardware packet capture driven Raw data artefacts
  • Replay artefacts for quick, full feed decoding using OnixS directConnect: CME MDP3 Market Data Handler
  • Lossless data capture from the Nanotick bespoke capture plant
  • Atomic clock precision to <10ns
  • Nanosecond timestamps
  • High availability
