Global exchange operator Nasdaq has added four new data sets to its Analytics Hub which provides statistical expertise for clients ranging from hedge fund managers through to algorithmic traders.

The analytics available in the Nasdaq Hub are derived from its core data in conjunction with third-party alternative data providers. The new partners include:
