Upstox now offers both the Interactive API and Historical API for FREE!
What does “Interactive API” mean?

  • Interactive API offers Real Time market updates, orders, positions, holdings, and balance APIs.

  • If you’re an experienced coder and developer looking to build your own trading system you can take advantage of the Interactive API which offers you the tools to customise and personalise the app with real-time market updates and current positions and orders.

What does “Historical API” mean?

  • Historical API offers OHLC (Open High Low Close) historical data for different intervals—1 min, 3 mins, 5 mins, 10 mins, 15 mins, 30 mins, 60 mins, 1 day, 1 week, 1 month.

  • In order to backtest your strategy or to base your future trades on relevant data from the past, you can try out the Historical API.

  • You will be able to see the market performance at different intervals and implement your strategies accordingly.

You can explore how to implement Interactive and Historical API through the Upstox App Console and API Documentation.
