the IEX exchange. Prices are only available for US stocks.
- The IEX cloud has a limit on the number of requests per month. If your allowance goes to zero, you won't be able to
request live prices or download historical data. For limiting the number of
requests, increase the TickTime for reducing the quote frequency, and
switch off price requests with BR_SLEEP or with the SET_PRICETYPE
broker command when you don't need them.
