The exchange will offer market data clients access to the FlexEdge Predictive Analytics Solution.

Market data clients of NYSE Technologies will now have direct access to FlexEdge, its predictive analytics platform offering advanced forecasting capabilities for trading U.S. equities, from FlexTrade Systems.

NYSE Technologies is the commercial technology division of NYSE Euronext (NYX).
