Quant opinion: Open Tick alternative is ActiveTick which is very affordable
Someone commented below as an alternative to free OpenTick:
A good alternative for me was ActiveTick (they’re not affiliated with opentick,
I’ve double checked). They have C++ APIs for windows, linux, and mac osx, as
well as C# and Java. I must say their data stream is excellent, and is very low
latency (I measured 10ms for me, and I’m on the west coast).
It appears this is only twenty dollars a month. What? Here is the real pricing:
Maximum number of concurrently streaming symbols 500 2000 Unlimited
Monthly subscription fee $49.95/mo $89.95/mo $179.95/mo
Also included is:
Unlimited tick series queries Included Included Included
Unlimited bar series queries Included Included Included
Unlimited static quote queries Included Included Included
Unlimited static fundamental queries Included Included Included
Exchange licensing fees Included Included Included
U.S. equities and Forex exchanges Included Included Included
Unlimited usage of ActiveTick platform
As Borat once said, ‘Very nice!’ This could give all the other tick providers a run for their money.
