Need intraday stock data for an index
March 10, 2013 1:03 PM Subscribe
I've been trying to find what should be simple: intraday data on a large market index (such as the S&P 500). I'm willing to pay, but most sites seem to be interested in selling me collections of N stocks (where N is 12, 50, 100...), often by year, and at that rate, I'd end up paying $100s to get 11+ useless chunks of data, and one useful one (because for my purposes, I really only want to look at a single index).
What are some economical sources for what I want? And, FWIW, I already know how to extract intraday (minute-wise) data from Yahoo and Google, but that's only good for about the last 90 days or so.
