You can't predict a global stock market crisis, but you can prevent one of the personal stock market disasters that cost people millions of dollars every day. You do this by knowing which stocks to watch, and watching them the right way.
Of course, you need to know how to pick a winner. But you also need to know how to give your stock a chance to win, and/or walk away from it if it disappoints or underperforms.
Here's how to know what moves to make and what stocks to watch.
One of the best parts about working at Intrinio is that we get to see our data come alive in the apps, software and innovations that our users build. Today, we're proud to feature one of our earliest customers, FinanceBoards.
The team at FinanceBoards built a bridge to integrate any API into custom widgets on a dashboard. This innovation enables anyone (even first time investors) to access powerful financial data in one place on their own, customizable dashboard. Imagine how convenient this is when you're analyzing investments!

API stands for application programming interface and if that sounds like gibberish, you are already being left in the dust by the competition. APIs allow developers to build connections between their own applications and other applications, enabling data sources to interact. In the past, businesses that wanted their software systems to interact had to purchase expensive ERP software and implement cumbersome, time consuming solutions.
APIs make it easy and cheap for business tools to "talk" to each other, powering data driven decision making in real time. Businesses that use APIs will thrive, those that don't will be too slow to keep up.
What exactly is an API?
If you are a developer using Intrinio's API you will have noticed that for many data types, the results are limited to a specific number per page. This article answers these questions about API paging limits:
