Result size limits

When querying our APIs you can specify the maximum number of results that you wish to receive in the response. There are upper limits for the number of results you can get back in a single query:

  • Quick Start API: max 250 records.
  • Historical API: max 5,000 records.
  • Syndication API: max 5,000 records.

If you do not specify a size limit, a default value is used. The default for each endpoint is noted in its documentation in the API reference. You can also find out more about query defaults here.
