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: BusinessAcademic 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.
