Kimono probably that is a the answer to turn any Financial Site into Financial API and possibly you can do even realtime data analytics or visualization on top of it. Sounds Interesting? Kimono built a browser tool that turns any website into an API without any coding experience. And that is particularly interesting to me to build interesting applications on top of it.
Kimono Labs is a Ycombinator backed startup which helps non programmers to build their own API with their web browser eventually allow anyone track data without needing to understand APIs at all. Kimono finds similar datasets and builds API’s on top of it.The API’s are delivered data in Json,CSV,rss format ondemand and at various frequency intervals.
Here are the sample API’s I had build using my chrome browser
