Intro

lemon.markets is the infrastructure powering algorithmic and automated trading.

Our focus is providing a REST-API that enables you to create and execute orders at the stock market as well as to retrieve market data in real-time to equip you with the tools for building your own automated strategy at the stock market. Right now lemon.markets is in the open beta offering a test environment with paper trading.

What is possible?

  • Creating orders at the stock market - with paper money for now, in Q1 2021 with real money

  • Retrieving historic market data until now (formats: M1, M5, M30, H1, D1, W1) via REST API,

  • Streaming real-time market data via Websocket

  • Creating and measuring each of your strategies independently (each strategy is a "subaccount" of your account)

Where does the data come from?

We get the data from Lang & Schwarz, a company providing the electronic trading system and taking the market maker role at the Börse Hamburg (Hamburg Stock Exchange, Germany). Between 9 a.m. and 5.30 p.m. (standard trading hours) the data/ stock prices are close to XETRA as Lang & Schwarz prices/ quotes are referenced to XETRA. Only from 7.30 a.m. to 9 a.m. and from 5.30 p.m. to 11 p.m. (outside standard trading hours), prices may vary and spreads are greater.
