We do not have these unfortunately.

We are continuing to work towards being able to provide you with un-adjusted data and we will let everyone know how to retrieve it as soon as it is available.

Ok but (correct me if I'm wrong) you don't tell people. Unless someone reads this forum thread, they'll think your data is right. But you know it's wrong. You have an obligation to disclose that, no? If you've applied some of the adjustments to some of the symbols, some of the time then you've invalidated the dataset for research purposes.
You might even open the firm up to liability for someone's losses if they allege you knowingly sold invalid data upon which they relied.

Good morning,

The ability to tailor history to meet personal desires for dividend and split inclusion is certainly something we would like to add. We are actively looking at methods to resolve the gap between what we currently have and what you and others are asking for, but that work is just not ready to release. As soon as we have something we will post it, but there is nothing immediate that I can offer you to resolve this.

Wow, this thread is nearly four years old!?! I'll never understand why splits and divs weren't made available via two new API calls. They're coming soon anyway (presumably) and would allow the whiners (ME) to create daily bars from the intraday data and adjust however they see fit. It would shut some of us up at least!

And I think the subject was brought up in a thread much earlier than this one. I'd hate to be the guy who thought it was a good idea to fix how some charts appeared after splits by overwriting values in the EOD historical data archive. Oops.

Can IQ Feed even tell us the most recent date this retroactive adjustment process was employed? If we just knew that we would know that data going forward of this date can be trusted.

Good morning,

We have continued to process these when customer demand has been present, so I do not have a specific date for you of when the last time was. I will say the last ones that I know of were, one in 2016 and two in 2014, but the potential for me to have missed one certainly exists.

We realize this is not the answer that you want or need. But, we do have multiple avenues being explored to attempt to enhance our offering to better meet your need. There is simply not an easy answer that is available to us currently and it will take more time to resolve. I do not know how much more time that will be.

Tim,

I have been considering subscribing to DTN and the lack of adjustment for dividends is what has stopped me. Makes analysis using EOD data meaningless.

Thanks,
Prospective customer
