What We Do
Premium Data provides end-of-day data update services, and historical daily data, for selected exchanges and markets across Stocks, Futures and Forex.
There is an easy-to-use Windows-based updating application for each of these security types.
The data is held in the "MetaStock" data format and can be accessed by any charting or analysis program that reads this format.
A basic charting program ("Premium Charts") is installed along with any of our updating programs for the benefit of subscribers who don't have a suitable charting package of their own.
The Forex data can also be updated in ascii/csv. For Stocks and Futures, we have tools available to convert the historical data to ascii.
Our updating services are reliable. Furthermore, our set-ups are easy to recover.
Separate history and program installers are always available to current subscribers from our Downloads area in the event of hard-drive failure, virus attack, machine upgrade etc.
Premium Data is operated by a licensed data vendor for the Australian Securities Exchange, the CME Group, the London Metals Exchange and other exchanges.
We also have licensing arrangements with leading index providers and upstream suppliers such as Thomson Reuters and S&P Dow Jones Indices.

Changes to the Update Schedule
Daylight Saving Time ends in Europe on Sunday October 31.
After the transition, clients who live in Australia can expect the "Asia/Europe" Futures Edition to be published one hour later (8.30 a.m. instead of 7.30 a.m).
The U.S. is due to switch away from DST on November 7, so further schedule changes will occur in the following week.
