Rate limits

What are rate limits? Rate limits are the amount of requests you can make within a certain time span. Rate limits are specific to your plan:

  • Free: 1 API request / 15 seconds
  • Basic: 5 API requests / 15 seconds
  • Pro: 30 API requests / 15 seconds
  • Expert: 75 requests / 15 seconds

Blocks

The API will respond with a 429 status code, with the following response:

{
    "error": "429: You have exceeded your request limit (TAAPI.IO rate-limit)!"
 }

Max calculations per request

There’s an upper limit to how many calculations are allowed per request. This limit is 20, unless you’re an Enterprise plan where other limits are individually agreed.

This max calculation limit includes the total number of calculations in one request, including bulk calculations and multiple backtracks. As an example, consider the following:

  • A single GET request with no backtracks == 1 calculation. Passes
  • A single GET request with backtracks set to 10 == 10 calculations. Passes
  • A bulk request with 5 indicators where each indicator request queries 3 backtracks == 15 calculations. Passes
  • A single GET request with backtracks set to 30 == 30 calculations. Fails
  • A bulk request with 5 indicators where each indicator request queries 10 backtracks == 50 calculations. Fails
