I guess either one though this seems obscure enough, for whatever reasons, that it is hard to imagine anyone is collecting it with a big payoff in mind.

comment Why isn't all market data free?
@user28694 - Yes but that is an end around of the issue. No doubt many people are willing to pay to trade on insider information but we view this as unacceptable and (in theory) punish it. Is there any real difference, beyond the time scale, between a banker letting his hedge fund friend know they are about to close a buyout of XYZ corp in 2 days and select access to market data letting high powered players know that a market moving event will happen minutes or even seconds before the 2nd class market citizens? Sure, there is a huge financial interest there but for the good of the market?
