requesting data


im lookin for 10 yrs data on indices, commodeties, metals, energy, currencies etc.
Tick data it is. Im using NT7 so it need to be+

File Name
When using the NinjaTrader format, the name of the text file to be imported must be the NinjaTrader instrument name followed by a period and "Last", "Bid", or "Ask" depending on the data type. For example:

ES 12-09.Last.txt for the S&P E-mini December contract last price data
$EURUSD.Ask.txt for the Euro/U.S. dollar currency pair ask price data

Tick Format
Each tick must be on its own line and fields must be separated by semicolon (.

The format is:
yyyyMMdd HHmmss;price;volume

Sample data:
20061107 000431;1383.00;1
20061107 000456;1383.25;25
20061107 000456;1383.25;36
20061107 000537;1383.25;14

Anyone that has this data adjusted to NT or knows a place to buy this for an acceptable price.
