Yes. I've done strategies like this in the past, and to do so, I used the ELCollections.dll which is a free set of EasyLanguage/PowerLanguage commands that allows you to read .csv files and the like. Do a search for ELCollections on this forum board to find the most recent version available.

It comes with very good documentation, so it shouldn't take too long to get going if you already have some basic experience with EasyLanguage and PowerLanguage.
