Who has the best Historical Tick Data?

Discussion in 'Data Sets and Feeds' started by KZ Trading, Oct 28, 2011.

  1. I just got off the phone with Metastock and E-Signal, they offer 30 days and 10 days of historical tick data, respectively.

    I'd really like to have more data and I'm ok writing code and using API's.

    I saw the Tick data website and they were like $50k for data, and that's not going to happen.

    Who has the best (longest & cheapest) Historical Tick Data?

    120 days tick, 2 years minute, $50 per month excluding exchange fees.

    eSignal actually provides up to 40 days of ticks.

    KInetick has no phone number to call and it looks like a $300 monthly trap if you set it up and then don't use it for a month.

    I'm actually only interested in stock data right now, do I have to sign up for CME, CBOT, NYMEX etc... ??

  5. It looks like you also have to get a ninja trader subscription to access the Kinetick data.

    So how much is all that together for just stocks?

    Send an email to kinetick for an exact quote, you only pay for exchange fees for which data you require. For example, if you only needed NASDAQ L1 data, it would cost you $55 per month total.

    No, you do not need a NinjaTrader subscription to access Kinetick.

    Correct. You need NinjaTrader which can be used for free. What you don't need is a paid subscription to NinjaTrader.
  10. Please let me know what you find. :)

    I`m looking at buying historical tick data (although minute could probably do) myself. Fortunately for me, I only need one symbol to start out and that seems to be affordable from Tick Data.
