I can find very detailed trading prices via Google Finance for the past 5 days. But for a older moment, Google Finance just can't provide. For example, I want to see the price of TWTR when it's first public offering begins and its next 48 hours. What should I do?

Update: I meant to see the data within a day (hourly or even minutely data)

To see a chart with 1-minute data for a stock on a specific date:

  • Go to Trading Physics
  • Enter the stock symbol in the "Stock ticker" field
  • Select a date
  • Select "1 Day" for the "Days on chart" field
  • Click the Submit button

For example, here is the chart for TWTR on November 7, 2013 - the day of the IPO:

  • @AwQiruiGuo I edited my answer to include a chart for each of TWTR's first three trading days. – 7529 Sep 24 '14 at 3:49

Yahoo Finance's Historical Prices section allows you to look up daily historical quotes for any given stock symbol, you don't have to hit a library for this information.

Your can choose a desired time frame for your query, and the dataset will include High/Low/Close/Volume numbers. You can then download a CSV version of this report and perform additional analysis in a spreadsheet of your choice.

Below is Twitter report from IPO through yesterday:

    Thanks but I can't check out the details within the first day, right? – AGamePlayer Sep 24 '14 at 2:41
  • You are absolutely correct in that assumption. – Excel Strategies LLC Sep 24 '14 at 15:11
