Stock Beta API Documentation
A free stock beta API.
We created this API to support our own applications and decided to share it with the world. This API is a beta calculator used in finance. It returns the beta of a dynamic ticker and a dynamic index based on inputted observation and frequency parameters. The following documentation describes how to use our free Stock Beta API.
ticker | Required
index | Required
Also a ticker symbol for use as the index in the beta calculation. Refer to the "ticker" parameter for sources to find index tickers.
interval | Required
Accepted values: 1d, 1wk, 1mo. Returns the end of day [1d], end of week [1wk], or end of month [1mo] data type.
observations | Required
A unit that represents the number of intervals you are seeking. For a ten day history use '10'. For a 2 month history use '2'. Will take a value up to 99999. The API will return a lesser amount if there is insufficient data available. For example, if you request 2000 observations but there are only 1000 observations available, the API will return only 1000 observations.
JSON | Default
Status, status message, and returned data. Status 200 is successful while status 400 is unsuccessful. Data will supply error message or the data requested from the API.
