SpiderRock Partners with CloudQuant to provide Historical Derivatives Data Access via API – Business Wire

CHICAGO–()–SpiderRock Gateway Technologies and CloudQuant (CQ) prove that access to large, complex, point-in-time historical data doesn’t have to be difficult. SpiderRock launched the Liberator API service which allows clients to skip the complex data onboarding process and simply use Microsoft Excel(™) or common programming languages to access data with one simple interface.

SpiderRock Liberator, a restful API service, delivers options, stock, and futures point-in-time data while hiding the complexity of data location, size, structure, and time-series issues increasing efficiency and reducing the time it takes to put the data to practical use. Traders and researchers can spend more time using the data and less time dealing with data management.

“Our clients use the Liberator API to shorten the time it takes to go from idea to practice,” said Craig Iseli, SpiderRock’s COO.

“SpiderRock’s clients no longer have to rely on FTP and batch programs because their spreadsheets, risk tools, and investment analytics tools are simply calling for the data,” said Morgan Slade, CQ’s CEO.
