Example Usage

var IntrinioRealtime = require('intrinio-realtime')
 
// Create an IntrinioRealtime instance
var ir = new IntrinioRealtime({
  username: "INTRINIO_API_USERNAME",
  password: "INTRINIO_API_PASSWORD",
  provider: "iex"
})
 
// Listen for quotes
ir.onQuote(quote => {
  var { ticker, type, price, size, timestamp } = quote
  console.log("QUOTE: ", ticker, type, price, size, timestamp)
})
 
// Join channels
ir.join("AAPL", "MSFT", "GE")

Providers

Currently, Intrinio offers realtime data from the following providers:

Each has distinct price channels and quote formats, but a very similar API.

Each data provider has a different format for their quote data.

QUODD

NOTE: Messages from QUOOD reflect changes in market data. Not all fields will be present in every message. Upon subscribing to a channel, you will receive one quote and one trade message containing all fields of the latest data available.

Channels

QUODD

To receive price quotes from QUODD, you need to instruct the client to "join" a channel. A channel can be

  • A security ticker with data feed designation (AAPL.NB, MSFT.NB, GE.NB, etc)

IEX

To receive price quotes from the Intrinio Real-Time API, you need to instruct the client to "join" a channel. A channel can be

  • A security ticker (AAPL, MSFT, GE, etc)
  • The security lobby ($lobby) where all price quotes for all securities are posted
  • The security last price lobby ($lobby_last_price) where only last price quotes for all securities are posted

Special access is required for both lobby channels. Contact us for more information.

API Keys

You will receive your Intrinio API Username and Password after creating an account. You will need a subscription to the IEX Real-Time Stock Prices data feed as well.
