TickAPI® Pricing

Access to TickAPI requires a one-year minimum commitment and a minimum monthly charge of $250.

Pricing is calculated monthly by multiplying the number of unique months requested (“Symbol Months”) by the fee per Symbol Month in each tier (shown below) up to the total, plus a $.03 per request fee (annual $250 Delivery Support Fee and sales tax additional). If the total spend in a billing cycle is less than the $250 minimum, the account is charged the minimum.

For example, if a user makes one request for 3 years of data on 20 equities (3*20*12=720 Symbol Months), they will pay $2.33 * 600 Symbol Months + $2.00 * 120 Symbol Months = $1,638 plus a single $.03 request fee = $1,638.03 (plus applicable sales tax). If the user makes any additional TickAPI calls for symbols and dates they already requested during the same billing period, they are not charged again for the data; only $.03 per request. Flat-rate pricing is also available.
