US and EU stock indices data ingestion currently broken

An update on data ingestion and chart generation Here is a real quick update on what can currently be observed on the main website: Our main data source for US and EU stock indices changed some internals, which is why the automated data ingestion no longer works. Hence, the automatically generated charts stopped updating in June. Unfortunately we noticed very late, and now the charts for the US and EU stock indices are outdated.

The clear solution to me was to provide a simple website and upload the daily generated market breadth visualization to this destination. This way, all visitors could browse through the mar

Working on a website for providing market breadth data

Current situation Currently, a set of tools, a time-series database and a visualization tool run frequently to generate the results I've been presenting through screenshots on this blog. Those mechanics run on a little private server for my own analytics purposes. There is no way I can grant third parties access to my private server, so I have to screenshot the graphs and upload them in this blog. I realize that this is not a very good way of sharing information with you.  This is why I've been thinking about other ways to publish the results of my calculations for market breadth data. Setting the scope I'm doing a lot of thinking about what I actually want to present to my small audience: Do I want to present raw data only, being visualized by simple graphs? Do I want to present insights, e.g. by marking divergences or
