    Hi,

    I'm new and starting to develop my first system(s).

    I plan to go with Norgate as my data provider.

    The Norgate packages are here: https://norgatedata.com/stockmarketpackages.php

    Gold: History for last 20 years, $198 for 6 months, $360 for 12 months

    Platinum: History back to 1992, $346.50 for 6 months, $630 for 12 months, delisted securities back to 1992, historical index constituents (???)

    I'm leaning toward Gold. I like the extras of Gold, i.e. current fundamentals, so am not considering Silver.

    Do I need all the history of Platinum for back testing if I'm developing new systems? In the Dump It Here thread, @Skate said he had a lot of history during system development, but then dropped the history once his systems were developed.

    Thanks for your advice,
    Linus

    @Linus van Pelt for me I just use the Gold and find no issues with the amount of data offered. I also don't really use the extras at the moment but like the fact that it is available.

    I'm only using Silver. When I had premium I had the whole 20years which was good intially. I don't use it now though. The inclusion of fundamentals could be helpful for you too (I don't use them but its another metric to be added if its what you are after). I may upgrade to Gold just for the extras.
