How do I know what kind of account to create?
When you sign up for an account, you will be asked your purpose for using Nasdaq Data Link: Business, Academic or Personal.
Understanding how you plan to use Nasdaq Data Link — as a business, an academic, or an individual — helps us personalize your experience by displaying relevant data feeds, functionality and documentation.
Please ensure that you select the most appropriate purpose for your situation:
- Choose Business if you plan on using the data for work or professional purposes.
- Choose Academic if you are an educator, student or employee at an academic institution and plan to use the data for research or teaching.
- Choose Personal if you will be the sole user of the account and plan to use the data to inform personal investments or to work on personal projects.
