Data Feed with a Good API, and not a ridiculous price

Discussion in 'Data Sets and Feeds' started by ProgrammerGuy, Apr 26, 2008.

  1. I'm just wondering what is a good data feed that has a well documented API that is in the 300 dollar range / month. I've found some great ones but I was quoted like $5000 / month. I'm sure I could negotiate lower but still how long can they when they start @ $5000
  2. Depends on what you want it for ... stocks or futures but its worth bearing in mind that both Redi Plus at Bright and Interactive Brokers are both integrated with Esignal charting meaning that they match each other tick for tick. In other words theyre a generic standard. Data from either of those is free or very inexpensive as is the API and of the same generic standard as esignal. So unless your really earning a lot those might be your best bet.
  3. sorry about that. I mean for stocks

    what do they offer for 5K?
    or what exactly are you looking for 300$?
    MB trading SDK use to be a very good,when they provide L1 and L2 on 100 tickers, with MM ID, size for each order,time when order was placed\modified. hard to find such stuff today..
