Data for the SPI200

Post by aaron » Thu Mar 17, 2011 8:29 pm

Hi Folks, I'm struggling to find a provider with at least a couple of years of 5 minute intraday data for the SPI200 futures here in oz. I've been capturing it since mid 2010 but have nothing further back to test on.

I would be grateful if your able to send some my way...or point to a provider that could.

cheers
Aaron

Hi Aaron,

I just did a quick Google search using the search phrase, "SFE intraday data"
Quite a few interesting tidbits came up.
One of which was this tickdata link;
http://www.tickdata.com/products/future ... ures-data/
As you can see from this link, they do supply data for the ASX SPI 200 Index Futures from July 2001 to present and I believe you can place an order for individual markets
From the limited amount I have read on their site I can see that with each data order they offer software that can convert the tick data to the format that you might like (i.e. 5 minute bars . . .or whatever)
Here is the link for that software;
http://www.tickdata.com/products/data-tools/tickwrite7/

As far as pricing & their terms and conditions are concerned, you will have to hunt that out for yourself by looking through the website.
They also offer a Free Demo for you to try before you buy. . . .. (Can't really go wrong there)

Please note that I have zero experience with these guys.
I just did a search and found them. You might like to do a similar search and see if you can find other providers.
I'm sure you will.

Cheers,

aaron

Thanks for the reply rhc.

I've also 'rediscovered' the data providers list on the trading blox site and am working through that list in addition to tickdata to determine a shortlist.

From the shortlist, I'll sign up for the trial evals to determine the winner with the best fit for my requirements.

cheers
Aaron
