Can anyone give me the API details on how to access the prices quotes shown on home page of BTC-E.com.
the api link on the site does not provide details on how to access bid and ask prices.
You can get any price quotes, in a JSON format, using these kinds of endpoints:
The structure of the endpoint is
https://btc-e.com/api/2 and then
currency_currency and then
Hope that helps!
The FAQ page at btc-e.com has a FAQ called "API" at the bottom. If you click it, it opens a list of items which, though BTC-e could change things at any time, so it's a good idea to visit that URL anyway, currently says:
Public API – BTC/USD
Public API – LTC/BTC
Public API – LTC/USD
