We want to implement it in our Plutus Wallet app and looking a partner for it. Maybe someone can recommend something like this?

Hi Mike, have you looked at Interactive Brokers' API? I was investigating it myself a while back but I haven't used it yet. See https://www.strategic-options.co... for a comparison with a couple of other APIs.

Yahoo Finance? I remember using them a lot with some R packages a while back. Also as @rohan_talip said, IB is a good option and also check this Github repo for a finviz unofficial api https://github.com/mariostoev/fi... hope those help

@rohan_talip @yakitos Wow. Awesome. I never thought that Yahoo Finance would be OK to work with 3rd party API

What exactly are you looking for? I’ve build applications that pull real-time market data and company information using https://iexcloud.io/. Quandl also has a ton of useful data, the probably most accurate for historical closing prices: https://www.quandl.com/data/EOD-... There’s also https://alpaca.markets/ that is an API-only brokerage.
