The website will give the public access to data that became available earlier this year when SEC launched its Market Information Data Analytics System (MIDAS), an internal agency system that provides SEC information about security orders posted by the nation’s stock exchanges and trading platforms.
MIDAS scoops up 1 billion records daily that are time-stamped to the microsecond, according to the SEC, including tapes and proprietary feeds of each stock exchange, all posted orders and quotes and trades both on- and off-exchange. SEC said the next steps in the market structure project include offering more aggregated data and analysis drawn from MIDAS to the public.
"Market junkies are bound to find the new site fascinating as well as those reviewing at the SEC" Brenda Hamilton, attorney and SEC blogger for Securities Lawyer 101 stated.
"Eventual public discussion should be helpful both for the SEC and for interested observers," Securities Lawyer Brenda Hamilton stated. "Now everyone can form an idea of what kind of tools the SEC is using to detect potential dangers that could result in another flash crash or similar event."
