FREE end of day data


A new website has been launched that provides free end of day data for most of the world's major exchanges. The site also provides free access to 5 years history on any symbol. Data is available in standard metastock ascii and other formats will be available soon.

Hi all

Just been looking at this site, and before anyone else registers, beware that you can't download a whole 5 years worth of data. You have to download every day individually.

I wanted to download the data into sharescope, but that could take forever :(

I'm still trying to work out why they want a phone number. :confused:

....hi just saw your message...apologies as i am still sruggling to use this site...

If you download the programme (MLdownloader) from MLdownloader then it will allow you 30 day use before you make up your in there you will find a *PDF manual...just follow that and you will be able to download the data from yahoo to metastock...

hope that helps...if not keep posting and will try to help...

reliable ?

Is the data correct ?
Looking at the Closing FTSE100 price for 6/10/03 they have 4,252.9
whereas everyone else seems to agree on a Close of 4,270.1

anyone any ideas ? am I missing something ?

and I think the DJI looks similarly off.

Thanks for that pttrader.
Your welcome. The only problem is unless you buy a 2 year license for 29.98 (which is cheap enough) you will have to keep downloading the free version every 2 to 4 weeks. The program takes a little effort to learn it but once you do it is straight forward and easy to download, convert, and export in a useable ascii format for several different trading software. It also works well with my software that I developed for daytrading/swingtrading stocks and commodities/futures. Have any questions you may contact me at

I have been using this site for a number of weeks with the email option. My observations are that:
a) the data is poor quality seems to be way out when compared to Yahoo, whixh is all I can do now, and b) the delivery is extremely poor. e.g. some daye no data in the email attachments other days there are missing codes. Only today the DJI was missing until I manually downloaded. I was using Sharescope and I am seriously thinking about going back. Only issue is I want USA data as well which SS doesn't provide.
