What We Do
Premium Data provides end-of-day data update services, and historical daily data, for selected exchanges and markets across Stocks, Futures and Forex.
There is an easy-to-use Windows-based updating application for each of these security types.
The data is held in the "MetaStock" data format and can be accessed by any charting or analysis program that reads this format.
A basic charting program ("Premium Charts") is installed along with any of our updating programs for the benefit of subscribers who don't have a suitable charting package of their own.
The Forex data can also be updated in ascii/csv. For Stocks and Futures, we have tools available to convert the historical data to ascii.
Our updating services are reliable. Furthermore, our set-ups are easy to recover.
Separate history and program installers are always available to current subscribers from our Downloads area in the event of hard-drive failure, virus attack, machine upgrade etc.
Premium Data is operated by a licensed data vendor for the Australian Securities Exchange, the CME Group, the London Metals Exchange and other exchanges.
We also have licensing arrangements with leading index providers and upstream suppliers such as Thomson Reuters and S&P Dow Jones Indices.

Daylight Saving Time starts in the U.S. and Canada on Sunday March 8.
After the transition, subscribers outside of the US time zone can expect the Forex, U.S. Stocks and the "North American" and "Final" Futures editions to be published one hour earlier.
The new update schedules can be found here:
Europe is due to start DST on March 29 and Australia will end DST on April 5, so further schedule changes will occur in the coming weeks.

Market Breadth Indicators - change to methodology
This change to methodology affects all index-based indicators measuring new highs and lows, such as "S&P 500 52W New Highs". It doesn't affect similar exchange-based indicators, such as "NYSE 52W New Highs", which we don't calculate ourselves. For the indicators in question, the figure is now based on the Close price rather than the High or Low of the day, as this is the more generally-accepted method. All the indicators have been re-generated from scratch on a new platform.
