Where can I get a time series of (date, bitcoin Mt. Gox price in USD)? BitcoinCharts no longer provide historic data, only the last 20,000 samples.

Stephen Gornick has a very useful summary of the price history at docs.google.com/spreadsheet/…. –  Meni Rosenfeld Apr 16 '12 at 9:35

You can get it at Bitcoincharts:

http://bitcoincharts.com/t/trades.csv?symbol=SYMBOL[&start=UNIXTIME][&end=UNIXTIME]

It returns a CSV file with the format:unixtime,price,amount.

For example, you can use this link to get the MtGox prices since August:

http://bitcoincharts.com/t/trades.csv?symbol=mtgoxUSD&start=1312174800

Awsome. I used this link to get data from 2009. bitcoincharts.com/t/… –  ripper234 Sep 8 '11 at 9:44
    
Well, this turned out absolutely meaningless. Here is the ugly conversation script if anyone's interested: gist.github.com/1251429 –  ripper234 Sep 29 '11 at 18:00

This explains how to get a dump of past Mt Gox data and the Mt Gox API allows current data. Hope this helps!

Bitcoincharts recently retricted the download for latest 20000 trades, it basically represents only two days of tick data.

Guys, if you have downloaded it before the restriction, would you mind sharing those past tick data? It would help me a lot. Thanks!

Update:

As promised, I'm sharing the way how I downloaded all historical trade-by-trade data from MtGox. Firstly, register at BigQuerry cloud database, at this time only download of 16k rows of data is enabled. Secondly go to bitbucket.org/nitrous/bq and download the software which automatize the data download. The whole database took approx one hour to download. Everything is free, no charges. Enjoy!

Just realised I post a question as an answer - sorry! –  Steef Gregor Jul 16 '13 at 8:30

See Meni's comment above. I have unaccepted the accepted answer, because it's, as you say, no longer correct. I personally don't have historic price data, but perhaps you can post on bitcointalk.org and ask there. (please post here if you find it!) –  ripper234 Jul 16 '13 at 8:40

Meni has only end-of-day data which is not sufficient. However, I will do as you suggested and ask on bitcointalk. If I find any, surely I will post it here for others! –  Steef Gregor Jul 16 '13 at 9:06
