From MultiCharts
Jump to: navigation, search

By default, MultiCharts displays the close (unadjusted) price for Yahoo instruments. It is possible to change the Yahoo connection parameters in the Registry Editor to receive the adjusted close prices.
Here is how to do it:

1. Close all MultiCharts Processes.
2. Go to Windows Start menu and launch Regedit.exe (type in Regedit.exe and press Enter).
3. Go to the path that corresponds your MultiCharts version:

for 32bit MultiCharts: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\TS Support\MultiCharts\Datafeeds\FreeDataFeed\Yahoo\v1
for 64bit MultiCharts: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\TS Support\MultiCharts64\Datafeeds\FreeDataFeed\Yahoo\v1
for 32bit MultiCharts .NET: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\TS Support\ MultiCharts .NET\Datafeeds\FreeDataFeed\Yahoo\v1
for 64bit MultiCharts .NET: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\TS Support\ MultiCharts .NET64\Datafeeds\FreeDataFeed\Yahoo\v1

4. Double click on the Close string value.
5. Insert the following string in the Value data: field:
chart/result/../indicators/adjclose/../adjclose
Click OK.

After that is done, start MultiCharts, build a chart for a Yahoo symbol and do the Reload to load the data with the adjusted close prices.
