Create and Deploy a Data Feed from a Stock History API
With the Flex.io API, you can quickly create a serverless data feed of historical stock data that converts IEX trading API JSON into tabular format for bulk loading.

There are a wide variety of ways to use a data feed, from loading data into a data repository to simply setting up access to a data source in your app.
Some common uses include:

- Enriching a data set with information from different APIs or data sources on the web

- Setting up a data feed to keep the information in a data repository up to date

Later on, you can run pipe in the following manner:
