Add new symbol

Postby arnie » 14 Feb 2009


I'd like to propose a new way to add symbols into QuoteManager.

What about to add lists of symbols through a .txt file as the one attached?

This would be very useful if, for example, you have all the sectors components in .txt files and want to add all of them at once to QuoteManager instead of adding one by one.

Naturally that we are talking about stocks, traded in the same exchange and at the same trading hours.

This would cut your time spending dramatically.

Also, there should be a away to save/export your stocks, futures, forex lists in .txt files so it could be possible to import them in case of major QuoteManager failure.

+1 for the feature.
May I also suggest to include an option to specify which fields to import. For example a description field is also important. Having an option to specify which fields to import will add some flexibility and cut time dramatically.
Totally agree - lists of symbols are very important to stock traders.
