FreeQuotes and ASCII-Import

Postby MCtester » 03 Feb 2011

Nice piece of Software. I have the following problems:

1. When I use Freequotes (Yahoo and Google) charting daily data is possible. But the last actual bar is missing. I can't "Connect" the symbol in the Quotemanager. So there are no delayed-data updates.

2. In the manual it say for Freequotes:

"The program downloads minute and day data. All the rest resolutions are based on them. Minute data is delayed by 20 minutes. "

It is impossible to download minute data from Yahoo and Google. In MCDT it says "No data"

3. Is there a possibility to import ASCII-Data for multiple symbols at once. It is not handy to import data of hundred of symbols seperatly.

Thank you.

Free Quotes provide only historical EOD data - you can plot only daily charts with no real-time. As for importing ASCII-Data for multiple symbols at once, you can use ASCII mapping feature. Please look in the Help for more information.
