Accumulating market data from now and henceforth

Post by Trading Leech » Fri Jun 08, 2012 7:07 pm

CSI data provides very affordable historical data sets for the US, UK and Canadian markets.

It seems to be rather difficult to find affordable data for other markets.

But let's say I plan on beginning to trade the, say, stocks on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (SEHK) five years from now.

Has someone here devised any easy (preferably automated) solutions to collect SEHK data for every single stock, every day for the next five years? It would be nice to be pointed in the right direction.

Since recent data can usually be found online for free, one would think that one could, in a few years time, accumulate some nice chunk of data -- for free.
