Hi, Matlab's datafeed toolbox coupled with a service provider looks like a great way to download data for backtesting. But, I've heard that the subscriptions are prohibitive for individual traders. I've looked at a few of the links and none of the providers will post their prices on-line (that's a bad sign right there ). Has anyone researched these and posted some type of comparison (price, data available, service, etc. ) on-line? It would be a big help for me. I currently use Interactive Brokers and if they have some way to get at these resources for a reduced fee that would be good to know as well. I'm interested in all markets - stock, futures, forex, etc. - US and worldwide. Thanks in advance.
