All tickers listed on NYSE and Nasdaq with market capitalizations above $500m are included, as well as all tickers in Dow Jones Industrials, S&P500, Nasdaq100 and Russell 1000 indices (tickers previously included in the indices as well as delisted tickers are also included).

For ETFs, we provide historical 1-minute data for the most active 220 tickers back to 2004.

Each 1-minute bar has OHLCV (open/high/low/close/volume) data which is aggregated from trades executed on major exchanges as well as four dark pools.
For tick data, each tick contains the timestamp, trade price, volume and exchange code (please see our stock tick data page for details on tick data.

Out-of-hours trade data is included, and prices and volumes are adjusted for splits and dividends.

Sample data for two weeks is available for all tickers (please navigate to the ticker page and click on the ‘Download Sample’ link).
