    Hi everyone,
    Could anyone point me to companies which provide both historic and current data for a wide arrange of macro data (i.e. ags acreage and yield estimates, interest rates, ags imports/exports, energy storage levels, stock/index/commodities prices, etc.)?

    I believe Bloomberg has some (or all?) of that data, but do they also have API to pull in historical data? Do any other companies provide something like that?

    I appreciate your help,
