WebServices offers quick access to Morningstar data from anywhere around the globe. Built with performance in mind, Morningstar WebServices offers developers flexible methods for downloading and uploading market data.

The Morningstar Commodity WebServices API is RESTful, making server resources available to clients via HTTP/HTTPS URI interfaces. The REST API is stateless, meaning each request from any client must contain all of the information necessary to service the request. HTTP Basic Access Authentication is required for most requests.

Key Benefits

Much of the Morningstar Commodity client software, including Commodity Add-in and Commodity Charts, have been rewritten to use the WebServices APIs in order to take advantage of the benefits outlined above.
