The Interactive Data XML Service is an API that allows the customer easy access to Interactive Data’s data by way of a simple HTTP GET or POST request. The client supplies all necessary parameters in the query string of each request and the resulting response is in XML format. The service provides a wide range of flexibility to the customer; providing support for various instrument types, multiple field requests, and multiple price formatting options. The service can be easily integrated with a customer’s application providing fast reliable access to Interactive Data’s data.

The XML response provided by the Interactive Data XML Service is that of a collection of standalone XML documents. Each document is associated with specific commands that are delivered over HTTP GET or POST requests. Each document is tailored to suite the request/response pair.

The following data services are available via XML:

  • Snapshot prices
  • Historical data
  • News
