Does the government sell private citizen financial information? Of course not. The government sells public citizen financial information. That includes everything on your registration forms other than your SSN/Address. When you register car or transfer the ownership, the price is reported to the DMV (among other things, for assessing the sales tax). Thus, ...

I don't know a free way to get access to this info on a daily basis other than perhaps squinting hard at CNBC's screen when they show their S&P heat map. However, that CBOE list looks accurate to me for the beginning of June. There were in fact 502 components on that date. (Interesting trivia: Here's a histogram of the population size of the S&P "...

Your inference in #1 is incorrect. The million dollars he has contributed is going to be part of the assets of the fund. This is common practice and is a way for the founder to express confidence that the fund will make money. He wants you to come up with a model that he can then use to trade those assets. Presumably he will give you some money if he ...

You can infer some of the answers to your questions from the BATS exchange's market data page and its associated help page. (I'm pretty sure a page like this exists on each stock exchange's website; BATS just happens to be the one I'm used to looking at.) The Matched Volume section refers to all trades on a given date that took place on "lit" exchanges; ...

The CBOE Rule Book, Section 5.5 explains exactly what programmes are available, how and when they will start listing and expire. The super-concise summary is: It's a per-underlying decision process, though there's some rules that may provide you with a minimum set of options (e.g. the quarterly programme on highly capitalised stocks trading for more than $...

You can give YQL a try. I'm not sure it can do the query you want, but for example you can do: select * from yahoo.finance.quotes where symbol in ("GOOG","AAPL","MSFT","YHOO") order by DaysValueChange (try it here) And this best thing about it - it's free.

I believe that the confusion here may be the result of mixing up two different types of prices - what we might call "official" prices and "market" prices. The exchanges issue official prices. They issue an official closing price and an official opening price. These prices are used by the various brokers and clearing houses to value their positions and to ...

From the link in the question: Kelley Blue Book representatives audit these auctions on a regular basis to gather a better understanding of what the highest possible "actual cash value" of a given used vehicle will bring at auction. Thus, they may have representatives at the auctions that record the transactions. If there is someone present at the ...

Did you notice these headings under "Total Non-Current Assets" (These would be the difference between Total Current Assets and Total Assets to my mind as Assets are either current or non-current): Net Property,Plant,and Equipment Gross Property,Plant,and Equipment Accumulated Depreciation Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets Goodwill Other ...

There is a relatively straightforward transformation explained on the Wikipedia page here and on the links from that page. Note that this only applies to SEDOLs for instruments listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE). To convert SEDOL to ISIN you pad leading zeroes onto the SEDOL until you have 9 digits. Then you add the two letter country code (as ...

Here is one from a Bloomberg partnership, it is free. To get the end of day prices, you may need some programming done. PM me if you need help with that. Getting bond quotes and general information about a bond issue is considerably more difficult than researching a stock or a mutual fund. A major reason for this is that there is not a lot of individual ...

There are business that exist by harvesting leads and selling them to other companies. These leads can be access to resumes they sell to business looking for employees; they can be eyeballs that view their adds; they can be list of people that meet a specific credit profile.

It depends on the way you have directed the order and the execution agreement you have signed with your broker. In case of DMA (direct market access) you would direct your order to the specific exchange - and that exchange would post your offer, assuming you did not tag it as hidden. However, if you just gave your order to the broker (be it via telephone, ...

I doubt that you will find 50 years of free historical data data online. There are a number of data providers that have been around for a long time - Thomson Reuters, Bloomberg, CSI Data to name a few. I have subscribed to Thomson Reuters for equities for 25+ years and their data currently goes back to 1991. I would assume that the index data ...

If I am short 100 shares of XYZ that closed today at $53 and the exchange decides to arbitrarily raise the price by $1, what do you think my reaction will be? Or perhaps it lowers price by $1. What will the reaction of all share owners be? Investors will not participate in a rigged market. Getting away from investor emotions and reactions, exchanges like ...

Even if the exchanges were to try to automate or facilitate the expected price drop, it wouldn't accomplish much because the only real price is what traders are willing to trade at, and traders assess additional factors anyway in pricing a newly ex-dividend stock, and would end up working around whatever the exchange does. The last trading in a stock before ...

A statement made by many is that the market determines share price change on the ex-dividend date. This is supported in an article at Investopedia: On the ex-dividend date, investors may drive down the stock price by the amount of the dividend to account for the fact that new investors are not eligible to receive dividends and are therefore ...

If you want to buy at the lowest ask, and sell to the highest bid, essentially you can achieve it through placing a Market order and you won't need to specify a bid or ask price. If you place a Buy order, your order will be executed to the one with the lowest ask price and vice versa. As for your comment, you may not necessary want to buy at the lowest ask ...

The current bid and ask are where the market is trading now. If either of those prices are acceptable to you then you can have the size that is posted with each quote if your order gets there first. For example, if the quote is: $24.75 x $24.95 1000 x 600 then you can buy 600 at $24.95 or sell 1000 shares at $24.75 There is the possibility that there ...

I found a blog post that did a similar study to the one that you are suggesting: MoneySavingExpert.com: Mastercard vs Visa for using abroad - which wins? In it, there is a graph that compares Mastercard vs. Visa rates for an entire year spanning May 2014 - May 2015: However, if you look at the graph, you'll see that they only actually have 2 points per ...

but what about non-identifying information like emails or even telephone numbers? Are you allowed to do this? Most countries have privacy laws that would explicitly forbid companies from selling data not just to other companies, but even to other divisions within the company without explicit approval from customer. There are adequate regulatory controls ...

The number of constituents in S&P 500 may not be exactly 500. The reason being they select largest 500 COMPANIES. These companies may correspond to more than 1 SECURITY. For example, class-A and class-B shares of the same company. Similarly, corporate-actions like spin-off might add to the number of constituents. Other corporate actions, handled ...

The Value Line Composite Index was an equal weighted index based upon both US and Canadian stocks, totalling around 1700 stocks covered by the Value Line Investment Survey. The coverage is around 95% of the total market. Do you have any other information on why the Zweig strategies used the Value Line? It might just simply be the case that there weren't ...

The steps you outlined are fine by themselves. Step 5, seeking criticism can be less helpful than one may think. See stocktwits.com There are a lot of opposing opinions all of which can be correct over different time-frames. Try and quantify your confidence and develop different strategies for different confidence levels. I was never smart enough or ...
