FirstRate Data LLC is a Delaware-registered corporation based in Chicago. We are focused on providing traders and analysts with high-resolution historical datasets for modeling and backtesting. We were founded in 2016 by two traders who were struggling to get high-resolution datasets to test their arbitrage models. Since then we have grown to fifteen employees and have provided data to over 3,000 traders and funds.
Our focus is solely on high-resolution historical datasets and we do not provide real-time data as we feel there are already enough real-time data providers. All our data is tested for consistency and completeness to ensure its suitability to trading simulations and market analysis.
