A Market Data APIMaking an Interactive Financial Information Display Possible on Your Website

Why do you need a market data API in order to display financial data on your website? An API is an Application Programming Interface, an essential part of the interactivity of Web 2.0. A programming interface is like a foreign language translator-It allows one computer operating on one system to talk to another computer operating on another system. Imagine how complex this can be when computer systems are communicating with market data. When you are providing financial information on your website for your visitors, APIs are necessary to display all but static, non-changing information.

Look for a market data solutions provider that can offer several different code-based APIs or SDKs (Software Development Kits) to ensure that you can connect with data feeds and tickers for real-time, delayed, end of day, and historical information. Having access to a .Net, Java, or COM/Win32 API will make this communication more easeful. APIs should have both a server side component as well as a client-side component.

Sample code should be provided with source code available for your tech team.

Business Finance Conversations About Negotiating

Negotiating strategies can play an important role for small businesses seeking to dig their way out of a deep hole caused by a perfect storm of declining sales, increasing costs and decreasing commercial loans from banks. The ability to use financial negotiations to their advantage has been underused by small business owners for a variety of reasons. But the lack of alternative business solutions to address pressing problems has elevated the value of negotiating to a level not previously seen.

Business finance complications being experienced by small companies continue to be a problem for the entire economy. While banks have received an inordinate amount of government financial support to help banking institutions recover from an economic crisis that many would argue was caused by them, small businesses and individuals have been largely left to fend for themselves. A prudent use of effective negotiation is a key tool that each small business owner can use to help their company survive the difficult challenges still facing them.

Negotiating can serve as an effective mechanism for reducing costs and helping to improve cash flow almost immediately. For small businesses who do not want to engage in negotiations or do not have the negotiating skills to do so, outside help should be considered to fill this critical gap. The typical small business owner simply does not have the luxury of choosing from a long list of alternative business solutions to solve current economic and financial problems impacting them. They need real time solutions, and business negotiating is up to that task if given the chance.

That being said, I will share with you some of my philosophical thoughts on trading, and general principles that need to be followed for success in the world of trading.

Trading is one of the most difficult endeavors you can attempt, but there are great riches for those who become elite. Not only do you need a successful philosophy, strategy and principles, you also need to understand the proper psychology of trading. This usually means going against normal human nature. It is the psychological part of trading that separates the fairly good trader from an elite trader. It takes many years of proper trading education to be successful in the long run.

Internet Marketing Secrets Spiel

Wouldn’t you like to know all the Internet marketing “secrets” that have made me the man I am today?

I live in a house way too big for my beautiful wife and myself. We eat three square meals a day and can snack anytime we feel like it! We drive our luxurious Cavalier to the beach and swim anytime we want (when I’m not busy making money on the Internet and the beach is not closed because of E. coli levels or ice fishing).

It wasn’t always this way. I remember just about fifty-two short years ago when I had no clothes. The doctor had to wrap me up in a blanket. But I applied myself for decades and finally starting making money on the Internet.

Did you hear about the guy that made fifty million dollars in one day on eBay? Peanuts! If you want to make really huge amounts of cash from e-commerce, listen to a guy who’s been there.
