IVolatility SDK (Software Development Kit) is a set of software libraries which allow an easy market data access within third-party applications running on Windows platform. IVolatility SDK provides both market quotes and derivative values, such as options implied volatilities, Greeks and more. You don't need another market data feed!
You can track your position P&L, volatility and 'Greeks' using our 20-minutes delayed volatility feed. With a client SDK you can integrate volatilities/Greeks data into, for example, any Visual Basic, .NET or C++ application using standard COM interface. We also provide a DDE data link into Microsoft Excel - no programming knowledge is needed to get access to the data!
IVolatility SDK is driven by data provided by a high-performance IVolatility.com Calculation Engine (IVCE) with market data feed from "ACTIV Financial". The data is transferred over SSL and encrypted using RSA encryption algorithm.
Standard subscription imposes limitation on amount of instruments to receive updates for simultaneously - 3000 tickers total (stocks or options contracts or futures or futures options).
