Tick Level Data Web-Service Query

Hi All,

I am new to the TrueData community and am trying to explore some API to get the Tick Level Data.

I am currently using the 'idticks' Web-Service to get the Tick Level Data. So far so good. I am using Postman to test the above web-service.

I would like to know how I receive the data. is it in CSV. But web-services are supposed to return data in JSON/XML. Could someone please confirm.


Thanks,

Rajesh

It's not necessary for web services to return data in JSOn / XML.

In fact, we don't prefer JSON as it overloads the system unnecessary and would not be the most efficient way.

We send only delta values (values that change) in CSV format as other things remain the same and are not necessary to be sent.

If you know the format in which the CSV data is returned, then there is no need for JSON.

Also, idticks is more for tick history. You should be using MData for calling real-time ticks of a large number of symbols.

Hope that helps.

Hi Aditya,

Thanks for your valuable response. Will explore MData API.

Does TrueData support Web Sockets Protocol??

Can you please send me the latest API docs and I will create a new topic if I have any additional questions.

Thanks,

Rajesh
