On the Internet: End-of-Day Data

| | | COMMENTS (1) | A A   Reset
Historical end-of-day data can be used to analyze the market and make investing decisions. While highly active investors use real-time data to profit from the minute-by-minute market ups and downs, other investors use end-of-day data for technical analysis and charting to find trading patterns.

Most of these Web sites offer downloadable statistics for the major stock, bond and futures markets in the United States as well as abroad. All of the sites include historical and current end-of-day data. The downloads are usually compatible with charting software programs such as Meta-Stock, OmniTrader, SuperCharts, and TradeStation. Some of the sites offer these services free of charge; others charge a small monthly fee.

Whether you are an investor who relies on technical analysis or one who monitors the market daily for profitable market movements, end-of-day data can assist with your market analysis.

This is very helpful. AAII provides weekly fundamental and price data, and it's necessary to have daily data for finer backtesting and analysis.
