The new partnership will see Interactive Brokers trading clients gain access to the Enchilada data API.
Wall Street Horizon, a provider of data surveillance for the equities industry, has extended its Enchilada corporate event dataset to Interactive Brokers’ IB Trader Workstation (TWS) platform, garnering access to a wide range of equity tracking capabilities.
Wall Street Horizon’s Enchilada API is a data aggregator, consolidating events data for 6,000 North American equities into one cohesive module. As a result of the partnership, tens of thousands of traders and investors at Interactive Brokers’ will now be able to access the Enchilada’s event data suite, which includes upwards of 5,000 North American companies.
In particular, the platform tracks a multitude of different event types including earnings dates, dividend dates, splits and investor related conferences – these insights are available via one unified feed that investors can utilize to make more informed decisions with their trading.
According to Steven Sanders, EVP of Marketing & Product Development at Interactive Brokers, in a statement on the extension: “We aligned with Wall Street Horizon in 2010 because their feeds were far and away the most accurate and timely, and we are pleased to now expand the relationship to offer the full Enchilada suite. Our options trading clients in particular will benefit from Wall Street Horizon’s comprehensive suite of event data, using this as an additional research tool in their pursuit of alpha.”
“Over the last few years, we have seen a steady uptick in demand for our data through the Interactive Brokers platform. With the full Enchilada dataset now available through TWS, their community of active traders will be able to leverage our data to avoid surprises, save time and make more informed investment decisions,” added Bruce Fador, Wall Street Horizon’s Chief Commercial Officer, in an accompanying statement.
