Successful and profitable trading depends on premium data!
Though The Gann Grids ultra program is compatible with most ASCII Formatted data feeds I have found the following data providers to be reliable!
Reuters Data Link
We at pivot point research have a working agreement with Equis international providing a 30 day FREE trial to the Reuters Data Link product. The Reuters Data Link is one of the best choices for reliable and robust data along with it going back over 30 years or more on most stocks, commodities and indexes.
I have personally used the Dial Data downloader for over 6 years and found its data to go back 30 years or more on most stocks, commodity and indexes and is relatively clean from errors. The Gann Grids ultra program also provides a seamless link within its functions for easy access to its service.
