Alternative Historical Financial Data

The first look at every stock ever traded on the London Stock Exchange.


London was the financial capital of the world prior to World War I when the NYSE exploded in its capitalization. To identify correlations that exist between these markets one must examine the behavior of stocks from 1692 to the present using both exchanges. This is the path to alpha.

Numerous clients report that they have re-calibrated their trading algorithms using the historical stock data only GFD provides. Not only will you out-perform the market, you will out-perform your competitors.

In the 1920s, over 4000 securities traded in London more than what was traded on the New York Stock Exchange at this time. Although the London Stock Exchange was eclipsed by the New York Stock Exchange after World War I, it remained the most important financial market in Europe for the rest of the Twentieth Century and remains today as a vital pulse for world finance.
