Financial market data cloud company Xignite has partnered with financial charting and technical analysis platform, StockCharts.com. The collaboration will enable the popular online destination for traders and investors to significantly increase its market reach around the world, as well as boost StockCharts.com’s ability to offer more data – including data on international markets.
“StockCharts’ innovative charting solutions are now powered by Xignite REST APIs,” Stephane Dubois, CEO and founder of Xignite said. “(These APISs) harmoniously integrate multiple types of stock price data into their app.” Dubois also highlighted the fact that the company will benefit from having its market data hosted in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud. “Xignite has freed StockCharts from the constraints of hardware and software, allowing them to deliver spectacular financial charts to millions of users each month,” he said.
Founded in 1999 by Chip Anderson, an early Microsoft developer, StockCharts.com has since grown into one of the more widely used technical analysis platforms for retail traders and investors. With more than 1.5 million active monthly users globally, StockCharts.com celebrated its 20th anniversary earlier this month. The company is headquartered in Redmond, Washington.
Xignite has more than 1,000 clients in financial services and serves more than 250 billion client API calls each month. The company offers 45 web services and more than 1,000 APIs to innovative fintechs like Betterment, Motif Investing, Robinhood, and Yodlee, as well as FIs like Charles Schwab and TIAA.
Named “one of the ten coolest brands in banking,” Xignite has been featured twice in the Forbes FinTech 50. Last year, the company was highlighted by Inc. Magazine in its look at 6 Fintechs Disrupting the Industry, along with fellow Finovate alums, Dwolla, Plaid, and Fidor Bank.
Xignite demonstrated its CloudAdd-in at FinovateAsia 2017. The solution enables the world’s more than 1.2 billion Excel users to access Xignite’s wealth of financial market data – including streaming data – via API and incorporate it directly into their spreadsheets. The San Mateo, California-based company was founded in 2006.
