Error importing back data into MC

Postby futurestrader019 » 27 Jul 2007

I had DTN send me a file of back data since the version of MC I am running restricts it for some odd reason. I am getting an error message, screenshot attached. It cannot find the ES symbol and I'm not sure what to do.

Also, does MC recommend a particular vendor for purchasing past data as well? I have found a couple co's that will provide over 10 yrs of data, but I want to be sure it will work with MC first.

Thanks!

Here's what you need to do to fix the problem:

In ASCII Data Import dialogue window, choose 'Unspecified' as the name for the column containing symbols. It should work. If it doesn't, let us know.

As for recommendations on data vendors, what kind of data and for what symbols are you planning to purchase?

Mainly ES, NQ, ER2, YM, EC, and CL for now.

Hello,

For purchasing historical data we could recommend subrcribing to datafeed from TS. They provide historical data and this would be the best bargain in terms of price/quality. You could subscribe and download whatever historical data you need.
