Hydrogen Integrates with Financial Data Provider, Barchart

Having accurate financial market data is an important part of any investing application. Hydrogen integrates with numerous financial data providers, such as Barchart, a leading provider of market data and technology to the global financial, media, and commodity industries. Barchart provides quotes and historical data for US exchange-listed securities, such as stocks and Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs).

Hydrogen has streamlined the data integration process making it easy for Barchart data to be added to any app or component you are building with Hydrogen.

Setup

To get started, you’ll first need to sign up with Barchart and create an account with Barchart to get your API key. If you already have a Barchart account, you can go ahead and sign in to retrieve the API key.

Implementation

Once you have Barchart credentials set up on the Integrations Admin, now we can begin to pull quotes. Our Barchart integration supports the following data for US exchanges only. Please contact us if you require global exchanges.

Historical Prices

If you are using securities stored in Nucleus, you can simply pass in the security_id and start and end dates to retrieve historical price data. You may also pass in a ticker or array of tickers instead.

       "<security_id>",
       "<security_id>"
  ],

  "end_date": "<yyyy-mm-dd>"
}
