Commodity Prices and Data Sources

August 17, 2010

I’ve spent days or weeks looking for good online sources of commodity prices and related economic data.

For large volumes of data, suggest a subscription to Thompson/Datastream or a Bloomberg Terminal.  Be prepared to pay $5000 or so per year per terminal.

For Commodities Tick Data, I have used and recommend TickData.com.  You not only get the data, but also a frequency conversion tool.

If the data or price you want is not here, please don’t ask me to find it for you (unless you want to pay me for consulting), find it yourself and then post a comment and I’ll update the table.
