TrimTabs Data Services

Time-series datasets are the foundation of TrimTabs liquidity research. We publish detailed data on all aspects of U.S. stock market liquidity:

   • The flows of mutual funds, exchange-traded       funds, and hedge funds.

   • Taxes - daily withheld income and       employment taxes, daily non-withheld
      taxes, and daily corporate income taxes.

   • Cash takeovers, stock buybacks, new       offerings, and insider trading.

Detailed supply and demand data on the largest non-U.S. equity markets.

The comprehensiveness of our data and our rigorous analysis are what set us apart.
