How to Request Tick Data

Overview of services

You can request tick data from dxFeed via several services:

TickData Service: Request structure

A TickData request consists of:

  • Records - comma-separated list of events

  • Symbols - comma-separated list of symbols

  • Start (time string is parsed similarly to DateTimeFormatter that is capable of parsing various data formats, like ISO-8601 (Check ISO-8601 Formatting Symbols) and epoch time (should be in milliseconds))

  • Stop (stop time should be higher than start time)

  • Format (csv or text)

  • Compression (none, zip, gzip)

The full list of parameters is available on the help page.


Use demo/demo credentials to check the examples:


Only IBM and GOOG symbols are available in the demo.
