Data Explorers is a provider of securities lending data tracking across all global market sectors. Data Explorers collects data 24 hours a day from all securities finance practitioners: Agent Lenders, Sell Side and Buy Side. The company offers analytics to help clients identify investment opportunities and manage risk.
The Data Explorers API allows developers to integrate the database directly into their own workflow. The API can be used to deliver long and short flow data at an enterprise level via web, mobile or bespoke trading systems. It uses both SOAP and HTTP calls and responses are formatted in XML.
Data Explorers tracks financial data (i.e. securities lending, short selling, fund activity, etc.) and captures over 85% of global transactions each day. The Data Explorers API (DX-Open) allows “developers to integrate [the Data Exporers’] database directly into your current workflow.” DX-Open levels the playing field from a transaction standpoint. Now home-based, day-traders have access to the same robust data that was formerly limited to global financial institutions and seasoned practitioners.
