The Trading Economics API streaming endpoint can be used to receive live calendar releases utilizing a persistent web socket connection. Streaming data from the API consists of making an authorization request and leaving the socket open to continually receive data. You can authorize using your API client credentials (key/secret). Then you will be able to subscribe to one or more of our streaming channels.
