Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) has announced the launch of ICE DataVault, a cloud-based tick history platform, which stores, builds and distributes historical tick data via programmatic, cloud or click-thru access. According to ICE, ICE DataVault provides front and back office solutions including market & trade surveillance. Tick data is a granular form of historical pricing data for securities which shows price moves and time in milliseconds for every security.

“Historical data can provide critical insight into what is driving movements in a market and is a key ingredient for pre- and post-trade analytics and decision-making,” said Jonathan Reeve, Head of Connectivity, Feeds and Desktops at ICE Data Services. “By offering our historical tick data over the cloud, or through our existing programmatic solution, we’re giving customers a flexible and customizable solution for delivering data that can help power strategies, meet compliance needs and manage risk across global markets.”

ICE DataVault is powered by the provider of aggregated real-time data and content, ICE Global Consolidated Feed. DataVault’s services can be utilized to manage and source normalized historical tick data available on ICE Data Services’ Consolidated Feed and Tick History Service.

Established in 2000 and headquartered in Georgia, ICE operates exchanges, clearing houses and information services. ICE Data Services serves the information and connectivity needs across all asset classes.

Recently, ICE entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Simplifile, an operator of a network connecting the agents and jurisdictions that underpin residential mortgage records, for $335 million.
