Each database is provided with the support program DataMaker free of charge, and produces both TEXT and METASTOCK format. You can also subscribe from the data vendor an update service for as low as $14.00/mo.
- IDX DATABASE
- The IDX DATABASE is a unique database that includes nearly 300 fields of data, some as far back as 1901! Now, you can chart the CPI, money rates, Fed Reserves, etc., along with your own equities! Study the DOW from 1901 or design your own momentum indicator using market breadth.
- CLC DATABASE
- The CLC DATABASE gives you a historical database of commodity futures prices, starting in 1969. The database provides open, high, low, close, volume and open interest. It covers 80 commodities and is a history of the most active nearby contracts - which is just what you need for linking and backtesting. Package includes DataMaker, software that links these contracts forward adjusted, reverse adjusted, unadjusted or all three ways if you like.
- COMMODITY DATABASE
- The COMMODITY DATABASE is a deep history of individual contracts. A complete set of ALL historical commodity contracts (approximately 10,000). The data in each contract spans from creation to expiration. Note that there is no software to link individual contracts together. For a continuously linked series, use the CLC Database.
