Price Data Source

The setup of your Price Data Source is one of the key configurations for Share Trade Tracker. It is the first step as part of the Welcome guide. After selecting to 'Set Price Data Source' you will see the following form that will configure the data source for End of Day and Historical Prices.



End of Day & Historical Prices
The options for prices are:
  • World Trading Data - this option is FREE for 250 requests per day. It requires the setup of an API Key before the data source can be used. The API Key is free and takes only few minutes to create one at the World Trading Data website. Click here World Trading Data for setup details. (Note: World Trading Data is limited to 2 decimal places)
  • EOD Historical - reliable data source, PAID option. This data source provides an alternative to World Trading Data via an integrated API. It requires the setup of an API Key before the data source can be used. At the time of writing this article plans from $20/month were available. Click here EOD Historical for setup details.
  • Norgate Data - this option is a paid data service that provides direct and local access to the prices and security information available in your Norgate service. There is no API required, once you select this option Share Trade Tracker will detect if you have a valid Norgate Data subscription and then use that to update your prices. Click here Norgate Data for setup details.
  • Yahoo (default) - this option is now the default FREE option for prices and security information. It is sourced from the Yahoo Finance site using the historical prices.


Some of my Securities are missing price data (#Not Found) ?
For the data sources directly integrated with Share Trade Tracker (World Trading Data & EOD Historical) if you find that some of your securities are not returning data. We suggest that you contact those data source providers and request that they add the missing security to their database. In most cases they are able to do this with 24 hours of notification
