STEX (former Stocks.Exchange) (Ruby API client)

STEX (former Stocks.Exchange) provides all the core exchange functionality, and additional merchant tools available via the HTTP API where all returned messages are in JSON. It's much easier to work with the API by using one of the clients provided by STEX, so while this page describes the API in case you want or need to build your own client, the examples use the Ruby client.


  • Ruby >= 2.5.1 ## Dependent Libraries
  • gem 'pry'

Getting started

To get started with the Ruby API client, here's a snippet for creating a client with existing credentials:

In order to use the API functions, you must have an API key and API secret, which is generated in the user profile.


gem install stocks_exchange_api_client

After install use for example this code!


StocksExchangeApiClient.configure do |conf|
  conf.url = ''
  conf.option = {
    client_id: '',
    client_secret: '',
    token_object: {
      access_token: '',
      refresh_token: ''
    access_token_url: '',
    scope: 'trade profile reports withdrawal'

puts StocksExchangeApiClient::PrivateApiV3.profile_info

Example Server-To-Server integrations

StocksExchangeApiClient.configure do |conf|
  conf.s2s = true
  conf.option = {
    token_object: {
      access_token: '<access_token>',
    scope: 'profile trade withdrawal reports push settings'

puts StocksExchangeApiClient::PrivateApiV3.profile_info
