JSON Format

JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is a simple data-transfer format. Humans find it simple to read and write. It is frequently used to convey data in web applications (e.g., sending some data from the server to the client, so it can be displayed on a web page, or vice versa). The JSON API format is HTTP-compliant. It defines how clients should request or modify data from a server, as well as how

Trusted Sources

Metals-API obtains spot prices in a variety of formats and frequencies from a global network of trading sources and institutions. Commercial sources are given more weight, particularly for significant currencies and metals, because they more precisely reflect market exchange.

In order to deliver the highest level of data coverage and accuracy, our system employs a unique “validation and fallback” approach that assigns different priorities to each data source and validates each metal/forex rate as it enters our databases.If a source fails to provide an accurate quote, the next highest provider for the currency pair is contacted. This helps us to prevent potential inaccuracies and deliver precision to six decimal places for the vast majority of spot currency rates.
