InvestorLink provides end of day and historical financial data for use in technical analysis. Coverage includes stocks, indexes, commodities, commitment of traders, and mutual fund data. Our data is typically used with charting software but is also well suited for use with spreadsheets and custom analysis applications. Two week free trial.
We recommend this option for those who want to trade futures in addition to stocks and are not looking for an included charting program. It is also less expensive.
|Paid Data Verses Free
Ramp will connect to free or paid data sources. There are three factors to consider when deciding between paid and free data.
The first is the timeliness of the data. Each market is different, so you want to look at how current the prices are on your market's free data. If you feel it is delayed too far, you may want to do a free trial on Premium Paid Data.
The second is completeness. That is, are all of the symbols you want in the data? Again, this is highly dependant on the market you want to trade. If this become a problem for you, try a free trial of Premium Paid Data.
The third consideration is pre scanning with the premium data source tools. For US stocks TeleChart is an excellent example of this. In TeleChart you can scan by fundamentals or other parameters that are not chart patterns. This way you can create a list of symbols based on fundamentals and then scan only that list for patterns with Ramp. Click here for a TeleChart 14 day free trial.
In summary start with free data and, in most cases, it is all you need. If you like, you can then try a premium data source. Premium data sources typically will offer you a free trial period.
