    I am sure this has been discussed here before, but I can figure out the right search terms that will bring it up.

    What can folks recommend for a historical data source with an API that allows you to write your own software to scan and backtest? I am mostly looking for NYSE/Nasdaq stock data, although the availability of futures data would be interesting as well.

    I know AIQ can be used to do this, although I have not tried their free, unsupported SDK yet. Are there any other choices you might recommend over AIQ?

    Thanks in advance for the help.

  2. The MyTrack SDK is quite good and has an active Yahoo Group dedicated to its support.

    Good luck.
