I had considered building a data provider suite for the AlphaVantage feed but discarded the idea due to not enough benefits compared to the already available data providers.

There's no shortage of EOD data connectors for Wealth-Lab but Alphavantage returns intraday historical data. However, the free intraday history spans only the last 10-15 trading days which is no better that the Google provider already offers.

Some of its users reported slowness. Another restriction is making 200 calls per minute. On the whole, I'm not considering investing my effort into it at this time.

As the Google data feed has been decommissioned, there's a gap to fill. Just released: AlphaVantage data provider! You can get free intraday (limited) and daily data for U.S. stocks and Forex.

1. Install the provider and restart WLP/D: Direct installation link

2. Sign up at https://www.alphavantage.co for a free API Key, copy and paste it to Wealth-Lab's Data Manager > AlphaVantage tab.

Close it for the changes to apply.

3. Check out the Wiki for its Online user guide. Read "Issues and Limitations" before reporting any.

Start getting free intraday and daily data for U.S. stocks and Forex!
