The Stocks API is a .NET library for working with stocks. It can be used with Visual Basic .NET or C# to:
  • Receive quotes from various sources
  • Place trade orders
  • Retrieve historical data
  • Build a library of historical data tapes
  • Test strategies

The Assembly name for the Stocks API is Desisoft.StocksAPI and it should be available in the “Add Reference” dialog. If you do not see it in the “Add Reference” dialog, you can just use the “Browse” option to locate it in the “lib” folder under the location where you installed the software. In C#, a "Using" statement should be added for the namespace Desisoft.StocksAPI. In VB.NET, an "Imports" statement should be added for the namespace Desisoft.StocksAPI.
