Currency markets can be very active and there is potential for price movements as often as multiple times per second. When live market data is requested, the prices/quotes reflect the most recent information (ie: the latest tick) in the dataset.
Absolutely not. Our feeds are delivered via standard HTTP GET (a standard web request) so it's fairly easy to implement in practically any networking aware programming language. Of course you are free to use any of these data APIs to speed development time in your custom Apps, or build your own.
We currently cover over 140 symbols (including some Gold/Silver). For a recent list of available symbols please click here.
Open,High,Low,Close Data is available in the following intervals (aka "bars"):
- Seconds: 1, 5, 10, 15, 30, 45
- Minutes: 1, 5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 45, 60
- Hours: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12, 24
- Other: Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Yearly
Pricing is pretty straight forward, the base rate entitles you to access fresh data at the specified update frequency; be it daily, 1 minute, 30 seconds, 5 seconds etc. With each "access" you may receive a complete list of pairs/quotes, a single pair/quotes, or any combination of pairs.
Each 1 access counts as 1 towards your daily limit. The daily limit is based strictly on a 24 hour period, not necessarily the 24-hour clock. So the clock starts the first time data is accessed and then 24 hours later the limit counter is reset.
For example, there are 86,400 seconds in one 24-hour period. If you subscribe to 5-second data you may access fresh quotes 17,280 times per day. Likewise, if you subscribe to 1-minute data you may access fresh quotes 1,440 times per day. Or if you just need Daily data you may access data once per day.
Each data subscription is entitled to retrieve data from one Main and one Secondary/backup machine. This measure helps to thwart abuse and to ensure the highest levels of service to everyone. If you will routinely require access from more than one+one machines please contact us to discuss the best option. Of course if you run into any trouble just let us know, it may also be useful to know the IP address of your machine(s).
Data sourced from leading market contributors is routed into our proprietary, high throughput ticker plant and directly out to clients ensuring consistent access to to the latest live spot prices.
