To fully evaluate historical stock performance, perform backtesting or historical charting, you will need adjusted time series pricing data. Xignite’s Historical Stock Price API is a great solution for this. This API provides historical price data back to January 1, 2000, for equities trading on more than 80 global exchanges, and supports adjusted historical prices calculations for corporate actions such as Split, Cash Dividend, Extraordinary CashDividend, StockDividend, Rights, and Spinoff.
Suppose you want to see which stock tickers have updated historical prices. In that case, you can use the Get Adjustment Factors endpoint to retrieve a timeline of corporate action events that impact price adjustment along with calculated adjustment factors.
But what if you want to update the price for multiple stock tickers on your symbol list or XNAS, for example? Before today it was a prolonged process, as you needed to make an API call for each symbol on the list.
We are excited to let you know that customers can now retrieve multiple symbols that have updated adjustment factors resulting from a corporate action event with just one API call. Our new API endpoint ListSymbolsWithAdjustedFactors can retrieve a list of symbols per exchange that have had corporate action adjustments for the past seven days with a single API call. Our API Test Form lets you craft and customize your REST requests and see the response instantly.
