Datafeed Toolbox


Datafeed Toolbox

Access financial data from data service providers


Current and Historical Data

Retrieve current or historical data using MATLAB functions such as fetch, getdata, history, or timeseries, which retrieve data immediately and do not update with changing market conditions. The data retrieved will vary by data service provider.

Real-Time Data

Retrieve dynamic data, such as event-based or streaming data, using the realtime function or by creating an event handler function in MATLAB that is executed each time new data is received from the service provider.

Intraday Tick Data

Use built-in functions to import intraday data into MATLAB. The amount of intraday data that can be imported varies by data service provider.

News Data

Retrieve large amounts of machine-readable news from Refinitiv or Bloomberg. Import the news data directly into MATLAB for sentiment analysis using Text Analytics Toolbox or by writing your own scripts.

A2A’s point-and-click interface

“When you deal with numbers all day and work with sophisticated analytical models, having an integrated environment is invaluable. With MATLAB we visualize data, conduct back-testing, and plot graphs to see the results of changes we make, all in one environment, and that saves time.”
