Norgate Data - Overview
Norgate Data provides updates for "end-of-day" financial market data (it doesn't provide live quotes, delayed quotes or intra-day "tick" data).
The service is provided on a subscription-only basis (historical data is not available as a "stand-alone" item). For Stock Market subscriptions, the extent of historical data provided depends on the subscription level.
- Subscriptions may be taken out 6 for months or 12 (monthly subscriptions are not available).
- Subscriptions are not subject to cancellation (see our Refunds Policy).
- Subscriptions are not renewed automatically (we don't retain your credit card details).
Data Format & Access
The data is held on the user's machine in a proprietary database format. Direct access to the database is provided by way of plugins into supported 3rd-party charting/analysis applications, as listed below. In addition, it's possible to export historical price data (but not other data features) in ASCII format. Access to the database is no longer possible if a subscription lapses.
Norgate Supported Plugins
All Norgate supported plugins support access to historical index constituent information for key indices such as the S&P 500. This allows back-testing on a consistent universe of stocks over time and the avoidance of "survivorship bias".
Note: a stock market subscription at a level that provides access to delisted securities is required.AmiBroker
