About Our Historical 1-minute Price Data and Tick Data

Data Overview

We offer up to 20 years of historical stock price data. Data resolution is 1-minute OHLCV (open/high/low/close/volume) intraday bars. We cover price history for 1500 US stock tickers, as well as 200 of the most actively traded ETFs.

For historical futures data, we cover 15 years of historical 1-minute data for the 40 most actively traded futures contracts. Note that all futures data is in the form of continuous contracts which are a single time-series, adjusted for any price movements on contract roll dates.

For historical index data, we cover 15 years of historical 1-minute data for the 25 most popular US indices and 10 international indices.

For historical FX data, we cover the 10 most active FX crosses back to 2009.

We also offer 10 year historical tick data for S&P100 index components and the 50 most actively traded ETFs.

We offer data by both individual ticker and by bundles. Bundles aggregate multiple intraday data sets for a specific niche - for example our S&P500 Bundle contains all 500 stocks in the index as well as 150 stocks previously in the index (including delisted tickers to avoid survivorship bias).

All stock and ETF price data includes both regular and out-of-hours trades and are adjusted for splits and dividends.

Data Format

All data is in zipped csv (comma separated value) files. These files are compatible with Excel and most trading, backtesting, charting, and quantitative analysis applications.

Data files are available for immediate download upon purchase.

Data can easily be converted to TradeStation, MetaStock, NinjaTrader, AmiBroker, Wealth-Lab formats, and for use in many other popular trading software applications as well as popular analysis tools/languages such as python, pandas and R / R Studio. Files for stocks and ETFs include out-of-hours trades.
For minute by minute data, bars with zero volumes (ie no trades) are excluded to reduce filesizes.
