Hi Guys,

I am currently writing a research paper for my MSc, focusing on the extent to which higher frequency data suits particular market conditions when forecasting volatility using MIDAS regression. Basically I am comparing the usefulness of higher frequency data when forecasting the volatility of emerging market indices (Bovespa, BSE, Merval, TWII, JKSE etc) to that of developed economies (S&P500, FTSE, DAX, NIKKEI etc).

So far I have only found the following source for such data:

Finam Russian Brokerage Company:Data Export

However, it is fairly limited in the emerging markets it lists and data only goes back as far as Dec 2002. I was hoping to obtain data for a year prior to this, starting Dec 2001. Also I'm not too sure as to the accuracy of this data.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, as I'm not using the data to trade and purely for research purposes I will see how the finam data fares for now. I am also in the process of sourcing more reliable data through a contact at a bank. As your data is 60-min data I'm afriad this would be of no use to me as I'm specifically interested in higher frequency data (5-min possibly 1-min). Thanks for your response.
