  3. sir, bank nifty 2015 march 30 (9.50 to 3.30) data shows something wrong. can u check this pls.

  4. Hi,

    A very informative site. I have downloaded the Intraday Data yesterday. Its upto 29-Jun-2016. Thanks for the data. I wish, I would get more IEOD data from you πŸ˜‰ It will help me to prepare for intraday trading.

    If yes then please let me know about the frequency of uploads. Another thing which would help me and others who download data from you. Please put the new data in another folder so that one need not download repeated data.

    I am asking for more, but I remember the TATA SKY ad…. “Puch dala to life zingalala….. ” πŸ™‚

    Once again thanks for the informative site, some of the excel sheets did helped me.

    Bye.

    • Hi Anand,

      Thanks for your kind words! Intraday data is updated every month, so you will find July month’s data on August 1st. And yes, we’ll try to put the latest data in new folder from the next time.

  5. sir, Bank nifty 2015 march 30 and june 24 showing wrong data. Any possibilities to get it corrected. Thanks for your selfless efforts behind it.

  6. This website is very usefull ,post any high profitable signals afl code.thank u.

  7. Is there any way to get MCX data for the last one year monthly contracts

  8. Will you provide Intraday data for individual stocks in NSE cash market?
    Thanks

  9. Also, Thanks for providing Nifty Intraday data. Searched many places , found your site after a while. Thanks for the effort πŸ™‚

  10. Thanks
    Pl provide latest data also because analysis are done for the future based on the previous data. If the is not updated on daily basis the analysis will get distorted. The real utility of intraday data is done for the next date of trading.
    I hope this point will be useful to consider for updating data on daily basis like a Bhavcopy.

  11. Dear Admin,

    First of all Hats off to your moto …Sharing is caring….

    Regarding my query

    There are diff types of folders like
    Year wise & consolidated

    Shall we import all folders ?

    Or shall we import only consolidated ? or Only yer wise ?

    Can we have another codes back fill if you can ?

    • Hi Viral,

      Thank you! For the first time, you should import only consolidated folder. Then every month, you may just import the respective months folder. If you have the trial version of Ami you have to import consolidated folder each time you open Amibroker as the data doesn’t save. Hope I was clear.

      • Yes admin it was clear and thanks for finding time to help each other

        I found after importing data …Bank nifty 2015 data – consolidated has some closing errors in 2015 data where in close for 2/3 months shows 1613 odd…

        it spoils the chart also and than i imported month wise also ….

        Its giving same error in bank nifty…

        pls check and reply

  12. i dont have words how to thank you…because this is the data what lot of vendors are selling for more than 10,000 or 20,000… i am shocked and surprised to get it free here…god bless you and your family….

  13. it will also be very useful if u could upload NIFTY IT or cnx IT as it was called earlier because it would be very useful for breadth analysis…

  14. i dont mind to pay a reasonable price …in case if u have for nifty IT data..you dont have to do it free…

  15. Hi
    Thanks for the help with the spot data. Would you be kind enough to update the futures data too.

  16. How do you backtest contract wise data on Amibroker, in the absence of continuous data

    • Hi Mithoon,

      I assume you are talking about future contracts which is not continuous. We can definitely backtest it like any other instruments but there would be rollover costs during expiry. Or you can code your strategy such that it squares off all open positions on Expiry Day

  17. Hello Sir, Thanks a lot for the valuable input !
    Is it possible for you to share intraday data of some major individual stocks as well.

    • Hi Saurabh,

      Right now we do not have historical data for all individual stocks. But we are working to source it.

  18. Thank you. This is a fabulous resource. In the 2017 files, what does the number in the last column (AFTER the close price) on each line indicate?

  19. Hi, where can I find the data for May 2017? Also, can you give us a choice of downloading the entire zip, or just for the previous 2-3 months. Because, for those of us who have already downloaded the large zip file, we only need to download two small files at the end of each month. Thanks.

    • Hi Nandita,

      May data has been updated. Apologies for delay. And thanks for the idea, we will consider it from next month.

  20. Thanks buddy, do you have one month nifty and bank nifty futures data with volume as well

    • Not currently, but we are trying to source the date. Will keep you updated.

  21. Do you have Intraday 1 Minute data for Nifty options and Banknifty options?
