EOD historical for futures

Discussion in 'Trading Software' started by Jayford, Dec 6, 2004.

  1. Anyone know of a good source for end of day data that has a good historical data base going back 30 yrs or more?

    Until recently, I used CSI for this, and while the data is good, its a nightmare to work with and download. Looking for a similar data base, but easier to work with.

    It would be preferable to have this incorporated in a real time product, but as far as I know, only FutureSource (numerous problems), and CQG (very spendy) have enough historical available.

    Thanks for any input,


    PS Just in case anyone is interested, I just switched from FutureSource to Ensign. Other than the data available, Ensign is a big improvement at half the price.

  4. those were a few quick replies.

    I'll look into em and tell the forum how I think they stack up vs CSI (which I hate, but has arguably the best data).

    So, which one dis you chose?
  6. Upping this thread.

    What do people use for EOD futures data?

    I know esignal is good. Futuresource is very expensive. On the web it is not customisable enough. Ensign (windows version) which I use is good for some contracts, not others.

    CSI is simply the best... You get what you pay for
    Norgate is also pretty good

    Try Dial-Data from trackdata.com. They have reasonably good eod for a very competitive price. They do have few probs to resolve ref. quality of data, but for what I do its just fine.
