About Our Historical Price Data

Data Overview

We offer 1-minute (open/high/low/close/volume) intraday bars and tick data for over 1000 tickers (800 stocks and 200 ETFs). Plus 1-minute bars on 20 major indices.

20 years data is available for stocks, 15 years for most indices and 15 years for ETFs.Tick data comes with both trade ticks and bid/offer (NBBO) ticks.

We offer data by both the 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 250 stocks previously in the index (including delisted tickers to avoid survivorship bias).

All stock and ETF price data are adjusted for splits and dividends.

Data Format

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

Data can easily be converted to TradeStation, MetaStock, NinjaTrader, AmiBroker, Wealth-Lab formats, and for use in many other popular trading software applications. 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.

Updates

We update datsasets once per month and customers will be entitled to three free updates. Updated datasets will be available from the Customer Download page.

Timezones

All datasets are in the local timezone of the instrument or index. For example, US stocks and ETFs are in EST, Nikkei 225 is in Tokyo Standard Time etc.
