Installation

Add to Gemfile.

gem 'iex-ruby-client'

Run bundle install.

Usage

Get an API Token

Create an account on IEX Cloud and get a publishable token from the IEX cloud console.

Configure

IEX::Api.configure do |config|
  config.publishable_token = 'publishable_token' # defaults to ENV['IEX_API_PUBLISHABLE_TOKEN']
  config.secret_token = 'secret_token' # defaults to ENV['IEX_API_SECRET_TOKEN']
  config.endpoint = 'https://cloud.iexapis.com/v1' # use 'https://sandbox.iexapis.com/v1' for Sandbox
end

You can also configure an instance of a client directly.

client = IEX::Api::Client.new(
  publishable_token: 'publishable_token',
  secret_token: 'secret_token',
  endpoint: 'https://cloud.iexapis.com/v1'
)

Get a Single Price

Fetches a single number, being the IEX real time price, the 15 minute delayed market price, or the previous close price.

client.price('MSFT') # 93.78

See #price for detailed documentation.

Get a Quote

Fetches a single stock quote.

quote = client.quote('MSFT')

quote.latest_price # 90.165
quote.change # 0.375
quote.change_percent # 0.00418
quote.change_percent_s # '+0.42%'

See #quote for detailed documentation or quote.rb for returned fields.

Get a OHLC (Open, High, Low, Close) price

Fetches a single stock OHLC price. Open and Close prices contain timestamp.

ohlc = client.ohlc('MSFT')

ohlc.close.price # 90.165
ohlc.close.time #
ohlc.open.price # 0.375
ohlc.open.time
ohlc.high # 0.00418
ohlc.low # '+0.42%'

Get a Market OHLC (Open, High, Low, Close) prices

Fetches a hash market OHLC prices.

market = client.market
market['SPY'].close.price # 278.56
market['SPY'].close.time # 2018-06-11 23:00:00 +0300
market['SPY'].open.price # 279.05
market['SPY'].open.time # 2018-06-12 16:30:00 +0300
market['SPY'].high #
market['SPY'].low #

Get Historical Prices

Fetches a list of historical prices.

There are currently a few limitations of this endpoint compared to the official IEX one.

Options for range include: max, ytd, 5y, 2y, 1y, 6m, 3m, 1m, 5d, date

NOTE: If you use the date value for the range parameter:

  • The options must include a date entry, {date: ...}
  • The date value must be either a Date object, or a string formatted as YYYYMMDD. Anything else will result in an IEX::Errors::ClientError.
  • The options must include chartByDay: 'true' or an ArgumentError will be raised.
  • See below for examples.

Query params supported include: chartByDay

This is a complicated endpoint as there is a lot of granularity over the time period of data returned. See below for a variety of ways to request data, NOTE: this is NOT as exhaustive list.

historial_prices = client.historical_prices('MSFT') # One month of data
historial_prices = client.historical_prices('MSFT', {range: 'max'}) # All data up to 15 years
historial_prices = client.historical_prices('MSFT', {range: 'ytd'}) # Year to date data
historial_prices = client.historical_prices('MSFT', {range: '5y'}) # 5 years of data
historial_prices = client.historical_prices('MSFT', {range: '6m'}) # 6 months of data
historial_prices = client.historical_prices('MSFT', {range: '5d'}) # 5 days of data
historial_prices = client.historical_prices('MSFT', {range: 'date', date: '20200930', chartByDay: 'true'}) # One day of data
historial_prices = client.historical_prices('MSFT', {range: 'date', date: Date.parse('2020-09-30'), chartByDay: 'true'}) # One day of data
...

Once you have the data over the preferred time period, you can access the following fields

historial_prices = client.historical_prices('MSFT') # One month of data

historial_price = historial_prices.first
historical_price.date # 2020-10-07
historical_price.open #207.06
historical_price.open_dollar # '$207.06'
historical_price.close # 209.83
historical_price.close_dollar # '$209.83'
historical_price.high # 210.11
historical_price.high_dollar # '$210.11'
historical_price.low # 206.72
historical_price.low_dollar # '$206.72'
historical_price.volume # 25681054
...

There are a lot of options here so I would recommend viewing the official IEX documentation #historical-prices or historical_prices.rb for returned fields.

Get Company Information

Fetches company information for a symbol.

company = client.company('MSFT')

company.ceo # 'Satya Nadella'
company.company_name # 'Microsoft Corporation'

See #company for detailed documentation or company.rb for returned fields.

Get a Company Logo

Fetches company logo for a symbol.

logo = client.logo('MSFT')

logo.url # 'https://storage.googleapis.com/iex/api/logos/MSFT.png'

See #logo for detailed documentation or logo.rb for returned fields.

Get Recent News

Fetches news for a symbol.

news = client.news('MSFT')

news.size # 10

latest = news.first
latest.headline # 'Smartsheet files for $100M IPO with growing losses'
latest.url # 'https://...'

Retrieve a range between 1 and 50.

news = client.news('MSFT', 5)

See #news for detailed documentation or news.rb for returned fields.

Get Chart

Fetches charts for a symbol.

chart = client.chart('MSFT')

chart.size # 38510

first = chart.first
first.label # '9:30 AM'
first.high # 94.97

You can specify a chart range and additional options.

client.chart('MSFT', 'dynamic') # 1d or 1m data depending on the day or week and time of day
client.chart('MSFT', Date.new(2018, 3, 26)) # a specific date
client.chart('MSFT', '1d', chart_interval: 10) # every n-th data point

Note that calling the chart API weighs more than 1 IEX message (you pay more than 1 call).

# 1 message per minute capped at 50 messages to intraday_prices
client.chart('MSFT', '1d')

# 2x22 trading days = 44 messages to historical_close_prices
client.chart('MSFT', '1m', chart_close_only: true)

# 2x251 trading days = 502 messages to historical_close_prices
client.chart('MSFT', '1y', chart_close_only: true)

The API also lets you convert multiple ISINs to IEX Cloud symbols.

symbols = client.ref_data_isin(['US0378331005', 'US0378331006'])

You can use mapped: true option to receive symbols grouped by their ISINs.

client.ref_data_isin(['US0378331005', 'US5949181045'], mapped: true) # {'US0378331005' => [...], 'US5949181045' => [...]}

See #ISIN Mapping for detailed documentation or isin_mapping.rb for returned fields.

Get Symbols

Returns an array of symbols

symbol.region # US
symbol.symbol # A

See #symbols for detailed documentation or symbols.rb for returned fields.

Get List

Returns an array of quotes for the top 10 symbols in a specified list.

client.stock_market_list(:mostactive) # [{symbol: 'AAPL', ...}, {...}]

See #list for detailed documentation or quote.rb for returned fields.

Other Requests

Public endpoints that aren't yet supported by the client can be called using client.get, client.post, client.put and client.delete methods. Pass the required token explicitly:

client.post('ref-data/isin', isin: ['US0378331005'], token: 'secret_token') # [{'exchange' => 'NAS', ..., 'symbol' => 'AAPL'}, {'exchange' => 'ETR', ..., 'symbol' => 'APC-GY']

Configuration

You can configure client options globally or directly with a IEX::Api::Client instance.

IEX::Api.configure do |config|
  config.publishable_token = ENV['IEX_API_PUBLISHABLE_TOKEN']
  config.endpoint = 'https://sandbox.iexapis.com/v1' # use sandbox environment
end
client = IEX::Api::Client.new(
  publishable_token: ENV['IEX_API_PUBLISHABLE_TOKEN'],
  endpoint: 'https://cloud.iexapis.com/v1'
)

The following settings are supported.

setting description
user_agent User-agent, defaults to IEX Ruby Client/version.
proxy Optional HTTP proxy.
ca_path Optional SSL certificates path.
ca_file Optional SSL certificates file.
logger Optional Logger instance or logger configuration to log HTTP requests.
timeout Optional open/read timeout in seconds.
open_timeout Optional connection open timeout in seconds.
publishable_token IEX Cloud API publishable token.
endpoint Defaults to https://cloud.iexapis.com/v1.
referer Optional string for HTTP Referer header, enables token domain management.

Logging

Faraday will not log HTTP requests by default. In order to do this you can either provide a logger instance or configuration attributes to IEX::Api::Client. Configuration allows you to supply the instance, options, and proc to Faraday.

logger_instance = Logger.new(STDOUT)

IEX::Api.configure do |config|
  config.logger.instance = logger_instance
  config.logger.options = { bodies: true }
  config.logger.proc = proc { |logger| logger.filter(/T?[sp]k_\w+/i, '[REMOVED]') }
end
# or
IEX::Api.logger do |logger|
  logger.instance = logger_instance
  logger.options = 
  logger.proc = 
end
# or
IEX::Api.logger = logger_instance
# or
IEX::Api::Client.new(logger: logger_instance)

Sandbox Environment

IEX recommends you use a sandbox token and endpoint for testing.

However, please note that data in the IEX sandbox environment is scrambled. Therefore elements such as company and people names, descriptions, tags, and website URLs don't render any coherent data. In addition, results, such as closing market prices and dividend yield, are not accurate and vary on every call.

See IEX sandbox environment for more information.

Errors

SymbolNotFound

If a symbol cannot be found an IEX::Errors::SymbolNotFound exception is raised.

PermissionDeniedError

All errors that return HTTP code 403 result in a IEX::Errors::PermissionDeniedError exception.

ClientError

All errors that return HTTP codes 400-600 result in a IEX::Errors::ClientError exception.
