Comprehensive feature set for enhanced user experience
Alpaca’s integration with Benzinga enables our Broker API partners to display a comprehensive set of features in their trading apps and platforms. The expanded feature set includes market news, corporate logos, and other alerts directly on one platform. End-users can read timely news stories, review data, and place orders without having to exit the app to obtain the information they need to make actionable investment decisions. Benzinga produces all of its news in-house and calendar data is obtained from primary sources. This helps eliminate redundancy, delays, and inaccuracies.
