Weekly API Townhall Meetings

Theta Data will now host a weekly API townhall meeting between 1:00pm-1:30pm ET every Friday. This is a great place to get API questions answered directly from the creator of the Theta Terminal.

How do I join?

We will host the meeting in our discord server, a chat room existing and prospective Theta Data customers use. The meeting will be held in the "API Townhall" channel.

What else will be discussed?

A good problem to have: at Theta Data, there are so many different ways to access data and customize requests, it can be overwhelming. Most customers use our endpoints without special parameters. Some special parameters could seriously improve performance or tailor the output to suite your needs. We will showcase some documented but often missed features that might be game changing for certain use cases.

You can now access real-time snapshots of major indices like SPX and DJI in just a few milliseconds. All you need is a Theta Data indices subscription. Currently, there is over 2 years of historical indices price data available. We are continuously adding history, so be on the lookout for even deeper history over the next few months!

Attention existing options subscribers: you have until June 1st to secure a separate subscription before your limited access to our previous indices beta ends. For options subscribers joining after March 1st, 2024, a separate subscription is required immediately.

Theta Data has responded to customer requests and feedback by introducing commercial licensing. In the finance industry, success hinges on robust infrastructure and data, particularly in trading. Companies that embrace new technologies are poised to leverage their advantages. Theta Data is at the forefront of this movement, revolutionizing the way we access financial information. Instead of relying on outdated legacy data delivery protocols established decades ago, we've developed our own, prioritizing throughput and minimizing bandwidth costs.

Our flagship product, the bulk options snapshot, is poised to revolutionize the way you access options chain quotes. With just one request, you can receive a real-time last quote for over 14,000 contracts in a mere 40 milliseconds. In comparison, our competitors take over 8 seconds to deliver the same amount of data, requiring over 70 requests to achieve similar results.

But the benefits don't stop there. Thanks to our highly compressed protocol, there's no longer a need to invest time and resources in co-locating with your data provider. Say goodbye to costly cross-connects and lengthy setup times—Theta Data allows you to access data over the internet with minimal bandwidth costs.

Is your business ready to reduce costs and increase performance? Contact sales today!
