The Sarus Monitor+ API offers easy and secure access to your market data direct from our web servers.  The service includes a free premium commodity futures and FX historical database. Monitor+ can  be used to populate internal market data databases, web pages, inhouse solutions and reports making it suitable for front, mid and back office needs1.

We manage the market data - applying all corrections and updates - giving you 24/7 access to all current and historical prices and symbol metadata.   The market data is delivered to you in JSON format via HTTPS (secure HTTP) making in-house databases, web content and analytic solutions a straight forward proposition. 




Our Monitor+ API also calculates changes, mean and averages  (day to year plus custom averages). We return the query results together with any corrections issued during the date range requested.  Our API lets you immediately access all prices and corrections for any number of symbols and for any date range available to you* - back to the 1970’s where data is available.

You can access day prices (with changes) letting you create 'quote' style pages with high, low, mean , volume, change and even spark lines. You can use the API extract prices, symbol information and corrected prices for any series and any date range.2
