Integrate market data into your project via our API
The lemon.markets market data API provides you with access to stock market data of over 1500 ETFs and 6000 stocks. Retrieve historical prices or stream the price development of your favorites in real-time.
Historical market data
To retrieve historical market data with our REST-API, you simply request the corresponding API endpoints (quotes, trades or OHLC). You can specify your requests using query parameters, so it's easy to narrow down which data is actually relevant to you. How you ultimately use the data is up to you - for example, you could store it in your own database or use it for backtesting to understand how your project reacts to different market conditions. Or develop your own dashboard and visualize it there in charts.
You can test all this risk-free in our Sandbox, where we provide you with the full range of market data free of charge.
Real-time market data
With the lemon.markets market data API, you can also receive the latest quotes and trades directly and without delays (within a few seconds via our WebSockets) from selected trading venues. For example, you can stream live data, process it quickly & easily and integrate it into your use case to make informed buy or sell decisions. What exactly you do with the data is up to you and your creativity.
The best part? Your money does not flow into the procurement of the data, but you can use it completely for investing.

Start now and support us with your time, feedback, or support on the many open source projects from the community or the API.
All you need to know about our APIFAQ - Everything about market data
Currently, our focus is on stocks and ETFs. However, if you are interested in other instruments such as bonds, derivatives or funds, you will also find them with us.
With our API you have access to both historical (quotes, trades, OHLC) and live market data (real-time quotes & trades).
So far, we offer data that comes directly from the Munich Stock Exchange ("XMUN"). However, technically, everything is already set up so that other trading venues can also be potentially integrated in the future. Stay tuned 😉.
We are currently testing it with a select group of developers and will be rolling it out to everyone over the coming weeks.
Currently, you can access historical quotes, trades and OHLCs with us until August 6, 2021. If there is a need for data prior to this, we will be happy to look into it.
Once we officially launch the product, you can sign up for our three-tier subscription model (based on the intensity of use). The sandbox (paper money environment) will be available to you free of charge at any time.
Unfortunately not. However, you can call up trades, quotes, etc. for up to 10 ISINs at the same time and thus compile the data yourself.
