April 12th, 2019 (REDMOND, WA) - StockCharts.com, the industry's leading provider of financial charting and technical analysis tools for online investors, has announced a new partnership with the cloud data provider Xignite. The announcement comes as StockCharts continues to transition from its own on-premises datacenter to cloud services hosted by Amazon Web Services (AWS).
In partnering with Xignite and utilizing its cloud-based data services, StockCharts will be able to greatly expand the scope of its operations, both in global market reach and platform capabilities. With the move to a cloud data provider, StockCharts will add coverage for new international markets, allowing the site to better serve its growing global user base. In addition, the company will be able to offer a more diverse set of data types and packages on the platform in what promises to be a major boon to current and new users alike.
"StockCharts' innovative charting solutions are now powered by Xignite REST APIs, which harmoniously integrate multiple types of stock price data into their app," said Stephane Dubois, CEO and founder of Xignite. "By hosting market data in the AWS cloud, Xignite has freed StockCharts from the constraints of hardware and software, allowing them to deliver spectacular financial charts to millions of users each month. We are excited to be partnering with StockCharts."
"We couldn't be happier about the move to Xignite, and I'm thrilled to finally announce this new partnership," said Grayson Roze, StockCharts.com Business Manager.

Simply put, the Xignite partnership will allow StockCharts to continue executing our mission of helping online investors make better financial decisions using charting and technical analysis."
