Data Source for Stocks

  1. Anyone able to point me in the direction of a good data provider for U.S equities?

    I'm looking for historical charts down to 1 minute time frames, ideally as far back as 5 years or more.

    Are you looking to view 1 minute time frames on a chart going back 5 year or just the data?

  4. Hi Robert,

    That looks ideal for what I am looking for, but i'm only going to be using it for backtesting at the minute so would like to avoid having to set up an account with a $25,000 minimum and chunky monthly subscriptions fees.

    Would you know of any similar style data source that doesn't require a trading account and ideally with fee's below $50 per month?

    Cheers

    I do not, but market data is not hard to find, but I'm not sure about cost.
