12 new databases from Quandl FREE Data

We have three new databases for institutional and professional users:

Dry Bulk Freight Forwards Rates

We now offer dry bulk freight forward rates for the major vessel classes. Published by MP Maritime, this database is powered by feeds from FIS sourced continuously from traders all over the world.  This data is valuable, exceptionally difficult to get and the daily update time of 18.45 GMT means it is also extremely timely.  History to 2008.

US Corporate Bonds

Quandl now provides fair-value EOD prices, yields, spreads, DV01s and other metrics for over 13,000 corporate bonds sourced directly from FINRA TRACE by our newest premium vendor, DelphX.  9 years of history means this database can be used as a definitive reference for research or auditing.  The timely 4pm ET update schedule gives institutions an MTM solution at a price 5 to 10 times lower than other providers.  You have trial access»
