There are several reasons to pay for data instead of using Yahoo Finance, although these reasons don't necessarily apply to you if you're only planning to use the data for personal use. Yahoo will throttle you if you attempt to download too much data in a short time period. You can opt to use the Yahoo Query Language (YQL), which does provide another ...

United States For press releases about economic data, the Bureau of Economic Analysis press release page is helpful.

There are several neat (and AFAICT completely undocumented) resources on NASDAQ's public FTP site. For your needs I would recommend: /SymbolDirectory/nasdaqlisted.txt = US Tape C equities /SymbolDirectory/otherlisted.txt = US Tape A/B equities (depending on the value of the ETF column) As for listings and delistings, I know I've seen those updated in /...

Articles of Incorporation are used to help verify that your business is actually a business, and that it has the name you claim it has. There are quite a few entities that may wish to verify your business. For example, many banks that you wish to open a business account or loan with will likely request articles as a prerequisite. I've even had potential ...

For currencies traded on these exchanges, the exchange rates of a given currency pair are determined by the market, so supply and demand, investor confidence, etc. all play a role. EBS and Reuters are the two primary trading platforms in the foreign exchange market, and much of ...

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 "...

I don't know of any free API's for these data, but I'll provide what information I can. Compiling all of this information from the EDGAR system and exposing an interface to it requires a fair amount of work and maintenance, so it's usually market data companies that have the motivation and resources to provide such interfaces. I know of a few options that ...

It's due to banking holidays. You need to look at a prior date, or use In the case of 12 Nov 2001, this was due to Remembrance Day (observed). Alternatively, don't use the Fed as a source! The forex markets had active trading on these days. Cheers, Richard.

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.

Tthe easiest place to see Fed announcements as soon as they're published is the Federal Reserve itself. If you want the information as soon as it's made publicly available, scrape the Federal Reserve press releases. I assume you're most interested in the announcements after the FOMC meetings, so you might want to scrape the FOMC calendar. The statements come ...

FRED could do it. They've got the exchange rates, they've got the inflation rates as time series. They've also got various tools to link it to applications or databases. They won't, however, answer your exact question directly, a little bit of coding (and thought) is needed. Here's why it's not uniformly possible to answer such questions: Even given only ...

There are no free reliable tick by tick data providers. The best data you will have access to for free is maybe 1 minute intervals. -I was a professional trader for a few years.

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; ...

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 ...

HELOCs are often priced as Prime +/- 1/2% or so. There's not one "HELOC" rate, the banks will vary between them, and the rate will also change based on customer FICO score and loan to value. The Prime Rate can easily be found by searching. Today, it's 3.25%. If you search for today's HELOC rate you'll see a range of 3-5%. For a single number "average," I'd ...
