I was wondering if anyone knew the reasoning behind the $1000/month price tag for live data, as it is quite out of reach for the majority of humans. I find it funny that it is FREE to use for backtesting historical data on QuantConnect and Quantopian, so researchers everywhere can find the Alpha but not act on it. Its quite an annoying pricing model, but can we ever expect to see a more reasonable cost for using this data to live trade? I don't need minute data, just EOD data, and I can't see why scraping alone is justification for such a steep price.
