Barchart Solution: Real-time data (getQuote, getHistory)

investFeed Summary:

investFeed aims to revolutionize the way investors make trading decisions. The FinTech startup is headquartered in New York City, and is positioning itself to become a reliable tool for anyone looking to learn more and engage in the stock market.

The way financial information is collected and analyzed is old and cumbersome, so investFeed decided to create a platform with a focus for both the casual trader, looking to access and follow reliable trading strategies and portfolios, as well as the big investment players, who want to share their insights and expertise.

investFeed gives its members the power to monetize their own account and earn additional income by sharing stock predictions, articles and content, creating a win-win situation for all members. The service is free, with an option to subscribe to access premium features.

investFeed needed a service provider that would work provide reliable market data and would work with the firm on pricing.
