EOD data: free ok, or $=better data?

Discussion in 'Data Sets and Feeds' started by littletwig, Jan 24, 2004.

  1. There are a lot of free or very cheap (under $20) eod data suppliers out there... using the portals (msn.com, yahoo.com) with hquotes or amiquote, sites like eoddata.com etc.

    As IB does not supply EOD, to keep my charts utd, I need another supplier.

    Is the free data substantially different from premium data.

  2. TOL


    From yesterday they disappear, http://www.eoddata.com. So last night I started to make my own, fairly easy to connect yahoo and get it from there.
  3. ??? eoddata.com is up here

    Others have made very valid comments that we should NOT skimp on quality, in either data OR the software.

    My question relates to the difference in EOD data from free versus premium suppliers: if a free and premium service have 1-, 5-, 15-, 60-minute intraday prices, WHAT OTHER FACTORS DO I NEED TO CONSIDER?
