Presenting the Tiingo API

Presenting the Tiingo API

It’s here, it’s finally here. The Official Tiingo API has launched after months and months of people requesting this, followed by months and months of dev time. The reason it took so long? We didn’t just do standard-API stuff, but we built infrastructure in exchange data centers to help significantly reduce to costs to everyday users to FinTech and Institutional players. For example, EOD data is included in the Tiingo price, whereas for FinTech: real-time data is $500/month instead of…

How to set up Hosted Web Apps with Windows Live Tiles

For those of  you who have been keeping up with this blog, the Javascript container process is something I’ve been following closely for the past decade. Earlier in the year, Peter Kruger from Microsoft reached out asking if I could test their latest implementation, which we presented at //Build. It was an honor, and since then I’ve been advocating Microsoft and OpenFin’s implementation as my favorites. In a nutshell: The Javascript container process let’s you take a JS website and make it…

AWS vs Packet.net
Why we left AWS

Benchmarking AWS’s Network, Disk, and CPU Performance

If this sounds like a glowing review of Packet.net – it is. I found myself re-reading this post over and over, trying to make it sound less shrilly – but I can’t. It’s just a ridiculously good product and value – EC2 containers just don’t make sense anymore. A friend once told me, “Rishi – sometimes if you don’t advocate a product aggressively – you can be doing society a disservice in your attempt to be neutral. If the value is…

Apps Have Recreated the Problem the Web Was Trying to Fix (Part 1)

Apps Have Recreated the Problem the Web Was Trying to Fix (Part 1)

It’s no question the word “App” has become ubiquitous and for good reason. For users it’s allowed us to install entire applications within a click. Just 10 years ago, we had to run into a store like Best Buy, look for an oversized software box, and load the game or software over 4 CDs. For developers, it’s meant we can take our product and unleash into a massive pipeline where people are already on their phone constantly. The problem is we’ve…

Matisse and Memory – What Matisse Means for Traders

Matisse and Memory – What Matisse Means for Traders

I was going through old E-mails when I came across a correspondence I wrote to some friends awhile ago. Those of you reading this may be wondering, “what does Matisse have to do with trading?” Let me explain. Investors and traders are creatives. Experienced market players will acknowledge this, but to those who are just breaking in you may not realize it. After all, finance is fraught with imagery of old men in suits, but if you were to stop…

Screening for Increasing Dividends

Screening for Increasing Dividends

A user asked us if we could allow screening for increasing dividends; but, we figured we’d do one better. What if you could screen for the increases and decreases of any metric? Tiingo now allows this in 3 easy steps. Step 1: Create a custom metric To start, visit the custom metrics page here: https://www.tiingo.com/screen/custom Simply enter the metric you want in the “formula” box.

Presenting Tiingo Comparatives: Changing the Way We Compare Companies

When you’re about to purchase a stock, you want to make sure you are getting the best deal you possibly can. Often we’ll compare a company to a couple others, and maybe even try to find out general market conditions. But is that P/E ratio of 18 high or low? Context in markets is everything. For the first time in history, Tiingo now allows you to compare a company across industries, sectors, and benchmarks by letting you see how they…

Why 13-F filings are Poor for Replicating Funds

I’ve seen hedge fund and trader replication ETFs and strategies for some time now and I realized a lot of them are based on 13-F filings.I thought I would go into why these are poor for replication.
