I need to backtest a strategy on 5 minutes charts and I need at least 1 year of data, does anybody know where could I get that data?

If you're talking TC2000, it only goes back 500 periods, so with a 5-minute chart that won't get you what you want.

If you're talking StockFinder, I haven't used that in years, so I forget if/how the backscanner works. Sorry.

If you're talking about v7, I have NO clue, but Bruce or StockGuy might be able to help. :)

So, which software are you running?

Just an fyi, when I was referring to TC2000, I meant v12.x or v16.
