This download item gets historical intraday data for free for U.S. Stocks. The trading object downloads 1 minute bars for several days and it gets the close, open, high, low and volume fields. Once the data is downloaded you can display intraday charts using any timeframe equal or higher than one minute.
After you open the downloader, there are two fields you can update:
Symbols: Allow you to specify the stocks to use to download intraday data. The downloader will make a request for each stock, parse the result and insert it in into the intraday database.
Number of past days: Specify the number of past days intraday data (1 minute snapshot - Backfill) to download. You can download up to 15 days of intraday data.
During the parsing process and after the download, the pre-script converts dates found on the data file to the exchange date. This means that each session first bar starts at 9:30 (For Liquid Stocks).
For U.S. Stocks historical data (end of day data) you can use the following downloader: Historical Stock Market Data.
To download news data for US Stocks, use the Yahoo News and for stock tweets download this trading object StockTwits.
