Add all possible free data to cart

The goal here is rather then individually have to select each currency pair and resolution then add to cart. I am wondering if there is a way to automatically add every possible freebie data to the cart?

Alternatively does someone have a download link of all the data (forex or stocks or whatever is out there), that i could just copy to the lean data folder?


Would make desktop mode life a lot easier

Lucas, did you have any luck finding any scraps of free data for equity stock tickers or ETFs? Being able to develop your algo locally isn't worth very much if you don't have the historical data to run tests on.

 Lucas this is the closest to what you want for the download section. The first step you have to do manually at this stage. Though for fxcm there are only 13 symbols, OANDA only 70. Total "clicks" - 100.

Chris Martin the US equity data is not free for download due to licensing restrictions. We provide as many ways as legally possible to download the data yourself in the LEAN project.

Do you mean the cart of QuantConnect? I believe you are not allowed to download all data. I think you need to buy data and you need a subscription to get updates. I use the offline data only for debugging, and indeed something I would like to put my breakpoint somewhere at a point in future where not data is in the lean data folder.
