Which website allows you to download historical stock data, other than Yahoo Finance?

    For most people, they only want data on listed stocks, don't care at all about the OTC stuff.

    What's the premium pricing for AlphaVantage? Currently they seem to offer 5 API queries per minute for free. That's a joke I assume, same as offering someone a bicycle with one pedal.

    Because of course everything in life should be free and that they only provide 5 calls per minute is just inconsiderate of them. A two minute search finds https://www.alphavantage.co/premium/ but you know, why do it yourself when others will do it for you.

    So I was asking for the premium pricing and you give me a website that gives no useful information. I'm not going to e-mail them for pricing, it's 2018.

    They advertise their stuff as 'free' and to democratize data (another fluff word). So yes, I was thinking they offer an usable service. That's clearly misleading to anyone seriously interested.

  7. The following are free:
    Alpha Vantage

    Both are excellent. I access both using Python but there are other options.

    You can still use Yahoo easily enough if you are adept in Python using the following library:
    import fix_yahoo_finance as yf

    It depends if you want data for the entire market or select venues like IEX, AlphaVantage, etc.
