      @Ashutosh Joshi

      The Buy and Sell Signals depends upons the strategies we use. Some of the marketcalls Amibroker strategies can be find under Amibroker AFL Codes with buy are sell signals. Try to understand the trading system before jump into trades

    Hi,
    Does DataFeeder works only for the Indian Stcok Exchange? I have downloaded and installed DataFeeder and it seems that it only supports Indian Stock Exchange. Could you please let me know of a datafeeder that works for Singapore Stock Exchanges (SGX)?

    Thank you!

    Hello Rajendran
    Good work.
    My Amibroker works on Windows 7. After completing installation process I could not visiualize chart.
    Only black colour screen is showing up. However some indicators are showing up for some symbols.
    I have logged into Yahoo Finance. But i am using Firefox .
    It would be very helpful If this feature works.
    Please suggest way out, if you find time
    Thanks in advance

    hello

    is there anyway you can modify the datafeeder code to provide eod data and possibly Real Time data from Yahoo or Google Finance for the UK market and US market.

    i would be happy to pay via paypal, i just cant find any other program that will stream into Amibroker the way i want it to.

    would appreciate reply.

    thank you.

    17-Oct-2013.

    the datafeeder 2.9.0 does not work correctly any more !
    i use it to download 1 min intraday data as text files for a selected list of stocks, every evening.

    today, it downloaded just 2 stocks i/day data and stopped working.
    i tried it several times. each time it just downloaded data for only 2 stocks.

    please look into this and resolve.

    thanks.

    • Rajandran R October 26, 2013, 6:31 am

      Yahoo Api’s are not changed probably yahoo might had put some restriction on the number of queries each day which makes such datafeeder software unusable.
