(Reuters) - Nasdaq OMX Group (NDAQ.O) said on Wednesday its second-quarter profit rose, as growth in the exchange operator’s market data business helped offset a slowdown in trading volumes.

Nasdaq, which runs U.S. and Nordic markets, earned $93 million, or 53 cents per share, in the quarter, up from $92 million, or 51 cents per share, a year earlier.

After adjusting for one-time items, Nasdaq said it earned 64 cents a share, up from 62 cents a share.
