Market data vendors must sign an Agreement of Distribution and Publication of Market Information (see below) with NGM. To retrieve the market data from NGM, market data vendors can either connect directly to the NGM exchange or take the data from one of the existing market data vendors. For information on technical requirements related to becoming a market data vendor with direct access to Elasticia, please see the section market access.
Apart from retrieving market data from any of our market data vendors, end customers can connect directly with NGM to receive market data.

Information on costs for producing market data
First it should be said that NGM’s cost for producing market data outweigh the revenues from market data. The rationale behind offering market data is to facilitate transparency and enable trading. Our market data prices are usually adjusted annually mainly in order to cover increased costs.
NGM does not allocate separate costs for market data, thus the cost for our production of market data is grain-coursed. The following assumptions are the basis for the calculation:
- At least than 50% of the infrastructure costs from the operations of the system that hosts the market venue are related to market data, since the amount of data to cater for is much higher for market data than for any other data in the system.
- The IT operations team at NGM spends about as much time on market data related maintenance and support as to other market venue related maintenance and support.
- The IT development team at NGM spends about 25% of their time on market data related maintenance and development.
- Outside of the above mentioned teams more than 50% of the employees are from time to time directly or indirectly involved in the work related to production and provisioning of information related to market data. In average it is assumed that these employees spend about 10% of their time working with market data.
Using 2016 years figures, this gives that the cost for producing market data at NGM was in 2016 about 800 TEUR.
