TradeKing Partners with API Leader Apigee
Technofans, developers and gearheads, we're delighted to announce a new partnership with API enabler Apigee. Apigee is the leading provider of enterprise API (Application Programming Interface) solutions, TradeKing's API provides developers with the resources they need to create a wide variety of customized investor applications and experiences that integrate securely with our online trading platform.
If you're a developer yourself or just interested to learn more, I encourage you to visit www.tradeking.com/api. You can sign up for more detailed documentation and support via email there, too.
We're psyched to be entering this new phase in our technological evolution. API support means developers everywhere will be empowered to build apps based on our trading, account management, Trader Network community and other key features. It's consistent with our socially-minded approach to investing, since API-built apps can permit accelerated, innovative development by partners and individual users alike. Among other angles, this means that developers can now start to mix and match (or "mashup") TK account information and trading services with their own home-grown trading programs or with offerings from their other favorite financial information providers, from Google Finance to Yahoo! Finance, for example, or with various commercial software charting or analytical programs, and beyond.
What's really cool is that these myriad new apps can then be further shared with people other than their makers. We hope the net effect will be to promote even faster innovation and a more diverse, exciting array of tools and services for you to choose from.
You'll be hearing more from us in the coming weeks about fresh new apps and solutions built on top of our API. We're excited to see what you developers can dream up with this!
