How Black Box Stocks Power Its Platform with Historical Market Data from Barchart

Meet Black Box Stocks

Black Box Stocks is a unique financial technology and social media platform offering both web and mobile based analytical software tools for stock and options traders of all levels. Their platform employs “predictive technology” enhanced by artificial intelligence to find volatility and unusual market activity that may result in the rapid change in a stock’s price. The complexity of their backend analytics is neatly hidden from the end user by their simple and easy to use dashboard that includes real-time alerts, scans, news and institutional grade analytics.


Since Black Box Stocks aims to find the best trading opportunities in real-time, they wanted their users to be able to analyze stock market trends, view charts with historical market data, and discuss that data with peers within the platform. Ultimately, Black Box Stocks needed to find a data provider to power its platform.

Enter Barchart

Black Box Stocks decided that Barchart would be the perfect data provider for what they were searching for. With the getHistory API from Barchart, Black Box Stocks receives extensive historical data for both stocks and options.

“At Black Box Stocks, our goal is to provide our users with the most reliable, accurate information and with Barchart we can trust that we’re fulfilling that goal,” said Eric Pharis, Founder of Black Box Stocks. “Barchart’s APIs are robust and they will go above and beyond to make sure they are meeting your needs,” added Pharis.

Black Box Stocks is building out their native apps and expanding their product offering to include mobile push alerts to their users’ watchlists. “We know that we will be able to count on Barchart for our data needs as we grow and expand our platform,” said Pharis.
