Quant / Algo / Hedge Funds

Did one of the technology companies on your watchlist move their earnings date or swap out an investor conference speaker? You can't afford to miss these events that may cause volatility. Algos and hedge funds use forward-looking feeds for signals to ultimately find untapped alpha. Quantitative researchers use Wall Street Horizon's unique repository of historical event data for back-testing and analysis to identify signals that generate alpha. Quant firms can also use our forward-looking events feeds to drive trading models that take advantage of those signals.

We offer the following data feeds and services as well as accurate, historical data:
