Xignite has enabled businesses to leverage market data in some surprising places over the years, including eye-catching art installations, luxury vehicles, and private jets, to name just a few.
Below, you’ll read about four unexpected locations where you can find Xignite market data APIs. Where else would you like to see Xignite financial data? Let us know.
1. In an art installation
Who says market data can’t come with a little artistic flair? When Beacon Capital Partners decided to redesign the lobby of its buildings In New York City and Boston, it enlisted the services of ESI Design, which was tasked with coming up with a concept that would appeal to multiple tenants and reflect the surrounding neighborhood. The result was an elegant design including marble walls and a series of videos and generative infographics capturing stock market info and local news, all displayed via LED screens that run across the lobby. Xignite provides data for the Dow Jones Industrial, Transportation, and Utilities Averages.
2. On a private jet
Just because it’s difficult to make trades while traveling miles above the Earth doesn’t mean you don’t want to stay up to date on what’s happening in the market. The Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation displays a ticker of Xignite-powered stock quote data on its business jets, including bid/ask data, tick data, volume and time-weighted average prices, and a variety of other stats for more than 150,000 global equities, depository receipts and ETFs. This provides travelers with a comprehensive view of the securities that are making waves, even when other modes of communication may be closed off.
3. In a Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Lexus, Mercedes or Toyota
Imagine you’re stuck in your car on a long commute or a road trip and you want to check how that stock you bought yesterday is performing.
