Singapore, 8 April – Singapore-headquartered financial technology company Hydra X has entered into a collaboration with U.S.-based Alpha Vantage, a leading provider of free APIs for realtime and historical data on stocks, forex (FX), and digital/crypto currencies.
The partnership will integrate Alpha Vantage’s data feeds with Sigma, an advanced multi-asset and multi-venue trading platform by Hydra X. With the integration, Sigma users are able to seamlessly view Alpha Vantage’s data on the Sigma platform once they log into their accounts.
With the partnership, Sigma users will have free access to data including those from major markets such as NASDAQ, NYSE, HKEX, SGX, various forex currency pairs and more. This is in addition to the live crypto price data from major digital asset exchanges such as Binance, Coinbase, Poloniex and more which Sigma users can access for free on Sigma.
“The goal of Sigma is to make multi-asset, multi-venue trading accessible to all. This goes hand in hand with Alpha Vantage’s focus on democratizing access to financial data and we view this partnership as synergistic. Alpha Vantage’s data, together with the trading tools native to Sigma, will provide our users with powerful analytic tools across asset classes” said Daryl Low, CEO, Hydra X.
“Alpha Vantage’s mission is to offer high quality data feeds suitable for any user. By partnering with Hydra X, Alpha Vantage gets increased exposure to Asia, and an expanded global reach. We are excited to work together with Hydra X to facilitate access to financial markets and data” said Olivier Porte, Co-Founder, Alpha Vantage.
As part of the collaboration, users who sign up for beta access to Sigma will receive a free enhanced API key (whilst supply lasts) which allows for an increased API call volume over Alpha Vantage’s usual basic tier.
