1 Historical Data is available going back to our beta preview release(June 2017). The database is growing each day.
Additional data going back further is planned to be added in the near future. If you are in need of data for a specific day, you can request it at anytime. We're here for you!
2 Realtime Data - While it's impossible to guarantee realtime speed 100% of the time, the majority of incoming data during market hours may be delayed anywhere from 500ms up to 15s depending on a variety of factors(network connection, network load, data processing time).
Every effort is made to get the data to you as quickly as possible.
Your Ultimate Investing Toolkit
Any data that is manually uncovered but considered a valuable addition for our customers may be manually added at anytime but will be timestamped according to when the transaction took place and will be alerted in your dashboard.
3 Dark Pool Data - Due to the nature of dark pools, it is not possible to report transactions in realtime.
FlowAlgo will provide you the data as soon as the exchange reports the order or it is reported to FINRA's Alternative Display Facility(ADF) which may be a few hours later, the next day, or in some cases(when a dark pool transaction occurs on a Friday) it may not be reported until the next Monday. Please note that at the moment, equity block and print data is delayed up to 20 minutes due to exchange regulations. We are actively working on doing away with this delay.

All data appearing under the Equity Block trades may not all be dark pool prints but the data is equally as valuable due to the nature of how trading algorithms collect and act on this data. You can tell dark pool prints apart from a normal block trade by checking the spot price. Dark pool prints will in most cases be filled at a long-tailed price(Example: $149.9554) and the spot price may also be outside of the stocks current day trading range. Update 09/06/17: FlowAlgo now identifies and highlights dark pool transactions within the dashboard.
