Andy,

there is a FANTASTIC data source that is actually a central database for a ton of the things you've listed:

www.economagic.com

for $50 you can build a self-updating spreadsheet w/ http codes that update everytime their central database updates. i know for a fact they have every LIBOR self updating, constant maturity treasuries and a ton of macro economic data and every FX rate vs. the dollar (you can easily calc cross rates obviously). i use this and have a great spreadsheet that i can pull from to ask all kinds of questions (see my recent post response to paul kruger's article) hope this helps. also, it is FREE to simply copy/cut/paste or download any data you want on the site, but it costs$50 only for the privledge of self updating files/codes.

During my risk-management internship in Luxembourg I prefer the german Yahoo site and Onvista.
There're also FX-Rates, implied volatilities and Intraday-prices to find.

But I will use some free data to test my progam.

[wanted] Historical 5 minute bar for ESH8 or QQQQ

I was wondering if there is any way I can download 5/15 minute bars(OHLCV) for ESH8 and QQQQ.
I would prefer it to be some free online source since making payments via the internet is not possible for me right now.
Ideally I would like the period to be as large as possible.(minimum 80 days!!)

intraday information is usually available to paid subscribers of any service. If you find a free source, let me know.

Hi All,

I need bond price data of the day of May 5, 2009. Since this is history data, I guess it shall be available somewhere on the internet, no need to bother with Bloomberg. Generally, what website(s) you use frequently for retrieve those financial data?

Thanks for suggestions.

Freed Bond data is not as easy to find. If you find a source, post it here.

if you're looking at the US market, yahoo has bond pricing data available as part of their finance.yahoo.com services i believe. i almost used it for a research topic i was involved in, but ended up going with compustat and datastream (not free) because they were more comprehensive.

agreed... free bond data is very hard to find on the whole.

Does anyone has idea where I can find this?

You want historical "volume" data? For what? Total volumes at the exchanges in the countries? Do you need daily ? monthly? yearly?

Yes volumes at the exchanges in these countries. I need the daily data.

You should be able to get it from Bloomberg. I have got lots of data related to daily trading volume on particular securities from Bloomberg before so I would assume exchange data would be on there too. They do provide data for most of the countries mentioned if I am not wrong.

I will have a look at Bloomberg in the lab this weekend and see if I can extract that data for you in an excel file or at least show you how to for one of the exchanges and you can do the rest.
