Stock Details API

Stock details API is very important. If you are building a financial application, you will
need to serve all details of the stock market.
For example, let’s talk about Apple Inc. (AAPL). Your customers might want to see all
details of the AAPL.

This API request will send a response you like given below.

  "symbol": "AAPL",
  "logo": "",
  "name": "Apple Inc.",
  "url": "",
  "description": "Apple Inc is designs, manufactures and markets mobile   communication
and media devices and personal computers, and sells a variety of related software,
services, accessories, networking solutions and third-party

  "address": "1 Infinite Loop Cupertino CA, 95014",
  "employees": 123000,
  "sector": "Technology",
  "marketcap": 908316631180

In this response, you can find all details about the company.


Market Status API

Stock markets and the FX market are not open 24/7. If you need an API that shows the
current status of the market, then you can use the Market Status API.

It’s very easy to use and it will respond like the given example below.

  "market": "open",
  "exchanges": {
    "nyse": "open",
    "nasdaq": "open",
    "otc": "open"
  "currencies": {
    "fx": "open",

this API will be very useful for you.

Market News API

The Market News API is very useful for your website or application. With this API, you can
get the latest news about the company. Currently, news is coming from one source, Finage
