Real-Time or Delayed Market Data: Which is Right for You? | Intrinio

What’s the difference?

Real-time market data is essential for driving trading decisions, creating buy and sell sentiment, and powering trade execution platforms. These use cases require the ability to react quickly to market changes — delayed data will put you at a serious disadvantage. Intrinio clients can stream real-time market data through our WebSocket, which continually pushes, or streams, data to the user with low latency. Or, you can pull the latest real-time price as needed via our Web API.
