Equity Signals Developed Markets API

Table of contents

Overview 

The Acuris Equity Signals Developed Markets API gives you live push of equity signals for stocks in developed markets 

It is delivered over HTTPS, conforms to RESTful principles, and returns JSON objects. 

Quick start

To retrieve signals, you must first request an API key token:   

curl -XPOST -d 'username=YOUR_USERNAME' -d 'password=YOUR_PASSWORD' https://ideasequities.timgroup.com/api/v1/auth

You can then call the Acuris Equity Signals Developed Markets API endpoint and get the latest published content for your subscription. For example, the first 10 events:  

curl -H 'Authorization: Bearer YOUR_API_KEY' https://ideasequities.timgroup.com/api/v1/stream/{stream_id}/-1/10

Signals are represented as an ordered sequence of IndicatorsGenerated events. Each event is identified by date and a region and has a sequence of instruments with indicator and alpha values.  

Compression

We recommend the use of GZIP compression to gain up to 80% reduction in the JSON data transfer. 

Accept-Encoding:deflate,gzip

Concurrency and rate limits

The system does not enforce any concurrency or rate limits. Client systems should be written to use the Long Polling feature of the API. Long Polling blocks your request until a new event appears, or a specified timeout expires, hence providing lower latency and resource usage than repeatedly querying the API in a tight loop.
