The Subscription Based Solution

For a Quote Simply Choose Your Portfolio Size

Portfolios are customised to your needs and requirements.

Portara has access to over 10,000 futures Forex and cash based commodities and instruments from all CQG global exchanges. CQG Datafactory and Portara are one of the largest repositories of historical intraday data in the world. Portara carries a ‘vanilla’ 400 symbols that most funds and traders require. Additionally, we have thousands of alternative futures and forex pairs not on this list.

Pricing is therefore tailored on an individual basis to suit each specific trader. Special bulk and discount deals can be secured. The main criteria for pricing is based on a combination of the following aspects that may suit an individual quote.

Potential Size Of Your Portfolio

We have some OUTSTANDING deals and SPECIAL OFFERS. Portara is more than 100 fold less expensive than the traditional Datafactory flat-file solutions and pricing structure. The more symbols you order the more we can discount.

The Access Length You Require

We can restrict the number of years back as a way of pricing if that suits.

Level Of Access You Require

Usually Portara is used to create continuous back-adjusted data streams to inception. However, some users need access to ACTUAL data (known as ‘Tenors’) this has a higher INITIAL licensing cost but is the same cost in future subscription years.

What Product Subscription Level You Are After

Portara has 4 product levels:
1. Standard Daily Data Only – Access to CQG’s Standard Daily Database
2. RTH Daily Data (Regular Trading Hours) – Access to BOTH Intraday and Daily Databases.
3. Full Intraday – Access everything down to the 1 minute time-frame
4. Portara Tick – In development

Each product variant has its own unique pricing. Please look at the different aspects of what Portara does to determine the best product for your needs.

The Number of Licences You Require

Portara is a single licence per user. However, to be fair Portara allows the sharing of the extractions between team members in a small fund up to 5 persons because we know that the person looking at R&D may not be the same person looking at the trades or executing. We allow fee movement between the team. However, Portara can only be installed on 1 machine per licence.

If You Require Custom Programming

Portara is a C# based environment. If you need custom programming performing either proprietary work or as a shared feature we will provide quotes to suit your exact requirements. Portara has done this many times for its global institutional client base.

Portara’s primary motivation is to develop long-term mutually-beneficial relationships with its customers…”
