Data and Format Details

Portara's formatting, timestamps and file extensions are custom tailored to suit your needs. The default formatting we offer is DateTime/Open/High/Low/Close with a CSV extension. There are minor format variations between data types.

Prices are back-adjusted, but can be adjusted into any form you need, such as forward-adjust,ratio adjust, no adjustment, and more.

Portara offers five point daily data. The five-point data is created by splitting the close into last price and settle price, as such the data formatting for the data appears as DateTime/Open/High/Low/Last Price/Settle.

Intraday data is supplied in 1-minute bar, and uses our standard formatting DateTime/Open/High/Low/Close/Volume.

Tick - Trades Only and Tick - Level 1 Data are formatted into DateTime/Open/High/Low/Close/Trade Volume.
