How do you access real-time stock prices feeds?

Real-time stock prices are available through our REST API, which allows you to pull the latest data with API calls. Our real-time stock price API limits the number of calls you can make within a certain time frame. Business users can talk to our team to customize the limits included in their plan. Our API Explorer makes it easy to build the correct syntax for the API calls you need to make. 

Users can also access many of our real-time stock prices feeds, like our Nasdaq real-time quotes API, via WebSocket, which streams prices automatically as they’re updated. WebSocket subscriptions allow an unlimited number of price updates from a limited number of stocks. If your plan allows for 20 concurrent connections, for example, you can stream real-time prices for up to 20 stocks simultaneously, switching them out as needed.

Intrinio provides SDKs for the Intrinio API in several popular programming languages:
