Timestamp field explanation
We use Unix time for our timestamp field. It is a system for describing a point in time, defined as the number of seconds that have elapsed since 00:00:00 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), Thursday, 1 January 1970. You can easily check and convert all our timestamps here: http://www.onlineconversion.com/unix_time.htm.
For example, for output above 1509733800 it will be Fri, 03 Nov 2017 18:30:00 GMT.
Multiple Tickers with One Request
Just add “s=” parameter to your URL and you will be able to get data for multiple tickers at one request, all tickers should be separated with comma. For example, you can get data for AAPL.US, VTI and EUR.FOREX with the following request:
Please note, that AAPL.US used here in the beginning and additional tickers with parameter “s=”.
We do not recommend to use more than 15-20 tickers per request.
