What trading platform can I download data for and analyze it whilst I'm offline?

  1. Good Afternoon,

    I am looking for a trading platform, which will allow me to download data and access it whilst I am offline.

    Would anyone be able to make a good suggestion?

    Is Market Replay still free? I just need to daily candles.

    Thanks and Have a great day,

    You can use Tiingo.

    They have a pretty relaxed free tier.

    For daily data split adjustments are already in place. For intraday you have to do it yourself.
  3. Lol.

  4. I can use this offline?

    In excel or something sure, or you can build a simple UI around the data (python + pandas is good).

    When you've got an API token (free) you can visit such a link to download the CSV data for excel.


    Note that you don't need an API key for the above link as it's a major symbol.

    Here's the docs

    You can run a script like the following to easily display the candlestick chart:


    import plotly.graph_objects as go
    import pandas as pd
    from datetime import datetime
    df = pd.read_csv("./prices.csv")
    fig = go.Figure(
    Which results in the image shown. You can then play with the data as you like :)

    If you can program then Amibroker is one capable stock charting software. If you are viewing daily chart, Yahoo Finance has daily data from most exchanges. May need to pay for subscription for intraday data. AmiQuote is plugin that download trading data from various data providers. Amibroker can do offline and live trading. Amibroker is not resource hungry and fast. Alternatively, you can look at Ninja Trader. Free version do not have live trading.

    If you know programming, Amibroker is customizable like the chart below.

  8. You can use NinjaTrader playback connection to access previously downloaded data offline. The market replay should work with a free Sim license key.

    Email platformsales@ninjatrader.com to request a simulated license key.
