Recently there have arrived on the market two offers to sell a large amount of data for very little money.
(Although the source of data is not disclosed, industry gossip picks Dunn and Hargitt as the source.)
Microvest offers the data with their software and now Technical Tools offers an equally large amount of
historical data with software that can massage the numbers into a variety of common formats. For the list,
see Figure 3.
Thirty-two markets are available and you can get the numbers in one of three packages: three tradeables
for $199,21 markets for $499 and 32 markets for $799. This flood of reasonably priced data has already
stirred responses from large data vendors offering to match any published offer so we may soon be in the
midst of a "data war."
