Newbie question -

Is there no way to limit the quotes downloaded by setting date limits in the Data Manager?


Create a Dataset with 2 weeks of intraday 60 minute quotes for stocks in the SP500.


Only need the latest 2 weeks - time to download and data storage a big factor in downloading all the quotes.

Using Fidelity as data provider so question may be provider specific.

By good design, this is not subject to configure. But there are workarounds:

1. Google data provider - to some its limited intraday data range is weakness but this is what you need.

2. Data Tool - can truncate all data before (or after) certain date but you have to download it first. ;)

Thanks much for the answer Eugene.

You're welcome.

Just checked and found that Google returns 3 weeks of 1-minute data (delayed), slightly more than 1 month for 2-minute and 3 months of 5-minute data.
