opentick does not have $SPX historical data back into 2005?

  1. Hi all,

    I post it here because actually I am simultaneously looking for data for both $SPX and the option on that...

    I signed up for Opentick today. And I used its sample CSV Historical
    data downloader to download historical data.

    I am surprised to find that OpenTick does not have S&P500 index data
    back into 2005 or earlier.

    HistCsv data.csv 10010 MyUserName MyPassWord /e
    CO /s $SPX 05/1/2005 16:00 06/1/2005 17:00 /tm /o daily 1
    Connected to
    Historical data for 05/1/2005-16:00 - 06/1/2005-17:00 was requested.
    Downloading data...
    Progress: 100%
    Data was successfully downloaded.

    And then the CSV file was empty.

    What was the problem?

    Any other better reliable data source?
    I am willing to pay a fee if there is a hassle-free solution in the
    long run for reliable and good quality data sources...
