# Authentication

# Overview

All API endpoints require an API token. If you are a subscriber, visit your account page to create an API token. (opens new window)

Please Note: You must have an active subscription of Market Status API or Enterprise API Access to use the APIs.

Notice

Our pricing is structured around what data you need. This results in different plans with different levels of access. Keep in mind, you may not have access to all endpoints or markets. For details, please contact us.

# Details

You can authenticate using the api_token query string parameter (opens new window) or as a Bearer token in the Authorization header of the request. In examples throughout the API documentation we omit the api_token parameter for clarity, but it is required.

# Example

https://api.tradinghours.com/v3/markets/status?fin_id=us.nyse,jp.jpx&api_token=YOUR_TOKEN_HERE

Important

For the APIs to return data, you need to replace "YOUR_TOKEN_HERE" with your API token. Get your API Token here. (opens new window)
