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.
Twenty One APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Games, Advertising, Financial and Spam. Highlights today include APIs for locating cell towers, integrating chat for customer service, and querying financial information of businesses and individuals.
