EDGAR FTP

  1. Does anyone here download insider trading data from EDGAR's FTP site? I'm trying to figure out how to do it. The data folder (ftp.sec.gov/edgar/data) is empty when I open it up. Anyone know why? I am using Bullet Proof FTP.

    I ftp'ed one directories up and you can see mulitple directories full of data that is current. Maybe someone goofed. Company Data and filings were current through 1/24/2006. The data directory was empty or no longer has the correct permissions assigned.

    Just looks like a typical example of gov't in action! :)

    Pic of the directory. I was to lazy to open my actual ftp client I normally use. Just cut and pasted your url into IE.
