Unable to remotely retrieve data

I did the following:

  • Insert your job-user-id and api-access-token into the relevant config fields. You can find these on your Account page.
  • Update the data-provider configuration to refer to the APIDataProvider class. This is called QuantConnect.Lean.Engine.DataFeeds.ApiDataProvider.

However, I do not see an add to cart button or a way to download the bundles on quantconnect.com.

ERROR:: ApiDataProvider.Fetch(): Unable to remotely retrieve data for path ../../../Data/equity/usa/second/spy/20131014_trade.zip. Please make sure you have the necessary data in your online QuantConnect data library.

I also need some fundamental/coarse and fundamental/fine bundles/ zip files.

After setting up a local LEAN development environment and following https://www.quantconnect.com/tutorials/open-source/using-the-api-file-provider, I was notified that only Forex and CFD data, from FXCM and Oanda, with Minute, Hour and Daily are free to download. 

This means that I won't be able to use the coarse and fine fundamental universe selection methods that are built into the QuantConnect browser IDE. 

Does anyone have any suggestions on good equity APIs that include price, volume and fundamental data that I can use In place of the QuantConnect coarse and fine fundamental universes?

Thank you.
