      @Shailendra : It Backfill happens even in the non market hours. Every time you are using the plugin you have to connect to firstcharting server and you have to download the database for the firsttime alone. And the backfill happens automatically whenever you are visiting the symbols for the firsttime.

  9. shailendra says

    Thanks Rajendran.
    Qno 2. Are we able to get full historical backfill for the symbols visited as you have said above or there is some time frame due to this being a trial mode. Also if the answer is yes then is the data splits and bonus adjusted data.
    Regards
    Shailendra

  10. MB says

    I have started using this and here are my observations
    1. It is said that the backfill happens automatically, The ATP calculated is wrong as the volume is coming not correctly. kindly rectify the same or pls let me know, if there is anything that i hav e missed in the setup.

  11. Samit says

      @Yagh :

      Yes, Everytime Opening the Amibroker you have to go to file->DataBase Settings->Configure->Connect and click on the button “Close if the symbols already loaded” and Press “OK” Button so that the datafeed connects to the data server.

  13. Dnyandev says

    All setting done correctly and shows “OK” on status bar, but When I tried to open any chart , I get error
    “Not enough data available.
    To plot any chart at least 3 data bars are needed, but there are only 0 bars in ‘GOLD APR13-MCX”

    Please help me to fix this error. Thanks.

    Hi Rajendran,

    Not able to connect to the FirstCharting server , hence wanted to check are there any issues on the server end or it’s my local system problem.

    @all, Pls do reply if anyone else facing the same problem.

    Many Thanks!

  22. Zakir Tinwalaa says

    If trail version has so many issues, this a data feeder and if app does provide the same, people who are waiting to buy when it becomes commercial might loose interest.

    Is there a server connection error or server datafeed error ??? I hope so

  27. krishna says

  30. Rahul says

    The data plugin connects, it shows Green and Ok sign. But on charts nothing is loaded. Earlier it was working fine. But past 2 to 3 weeks it isnt.

  31. Rahul says

    Dear Sir,

    If the trial period is over. Then what is the actual pricing offered for the subscription.

    Also would like to suggest that if possible keep the connectivity for Free but restrict Loading of Few Scripts only. And introduce scriptwise subscription if possible.

    Just an over enthusiastic suggestion.

    Regards,

  32. hhs says

    sirji,

  33. says

    Hi Everyone,

    Download the latest plugin. Few more Bugs got fixed and trial is likely to extend for another one or two weeks.
    Let me have your feed back. Now the Backfill download is ultrafast and the plugin looks more robust , lighter and thin than the earliest.

  34. says

    Firstcharting Amibroker -- Final Trial before going live -- New Plugin -- 99% of Bugs got fixed
    Delete the older DLL plugin and update with the new one.

  35. kalyan dasgupta says

    i think the plug in behaves differently in different machine ,depends also with os and net as above reponses.
    in my case i only able to download symbols in previous plug in update. but candles were not perfect.
    better to switch from this plugin system

  36. Eswar says

    Hi Rajendran! Just for off the chat with the FC support. They are clear they do not support Amibroker plugin. They only support MT4 and the web based interface. I even sent them the link to this page. Very clear. no support for Amibroker. Is this a recent change?

  37. Ravinder says

    Dear Rajandran,

    Hi, This was working fine for the last three days.. except for some lag around noon. However, this morning (28 Feb 13) one has not been able to connect!!! Whats up? Anybody knows? Is anybody else able to connect?
    Thanx,
    Praveen.

  39. Praveen says

    Firstchart data plugin i have saved in respective folder of Amibroker but whenever i create new database this dll is not available in the list of Data Source. So I can not try this plugin. Please guide me of a solution.

    With thanks and regards
    Praveen

    • says

      @Praveen

      Please follow the above mentioned procedure. Save the dll plugin in Amibroker/Plugin Folder and also ensure that you had downloaded Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86) and installed it in your machine.

      • Praveen says

        Hi Rajandran,
        It started working alright… but there is an issue with the futures contracts. Since the Mar contracts were not getting listed, I did the configure-retrieve NSE futures again. Now, it lists Dec, Jan, Feb and now Apr contracts!!!!!
        I tried to do it afresh and in that case it does show Mar13-NSF contract, but after the NSF there are two special characters that are appearing. But no bars are getting downloaded!!
        There are other issues also which can be taken up in due course; but these are important.
        Thanx,
        Praveen.

          • Praveen S says

            Not sure when the demo expired.. since it was working as of yesterday.. though there were quite a few issues. So how does one subscribe for this? I couldnt find anything on the firstcharting site. And have the issues particularly with respect to the futures symbols been resolved? And finally, will it support all symbols?
            Thanx,
            Praveen.

          • Praveen says

            Thanx for the prompt response… However, couldnt do the needful since even a search of the entire amibroker folder did not reveal any such file!! In fact there is no *.symbol file nor is there any FSSPL* file. Could u please confirm the file name and its location?
            Best rgds,
            Praveen.

          • Praveen says

            Hello,
            Still awaiting response on the subject. The Futures symbols are still not getting listed and the data is not available.
            Please help.
            Thanx n best rgds,

    REPLY PLZ

  41. raghs says

    everything is w.r.t installation and setup , but i could able to see only 1 min chart , am i doing something wrong / different version to see the back fill data / do i need to pay for it..

    help us out..

  42. Kempawad says

    I have installed the latest one recently, but the problem is it is showing Dec12, Jan13 & Feb13 NSE Future Contracts in the list however, chart is shown for Feb only. Now we are in March but Mar13 contracts are not getting downloaded. My question is

    1. Whether we can delete closed all contracts and retain only current, near and far contacts?
    2. Currently all segments / exchanges are shown in numeric/alphabetical order. Can we segregate it segment /exchange wise?
    3. When we can expect it to be live commercially and what would be the approx price band?

    Please advise.

      • Kempawad says

        Still no improvements. In fact, there is nothing except USDINR MAR13-MCX.
        The moment we connect server, Amibroker produces violation message (which I have pasted earlier). The only choice is click recover or exit. When we click recover, I can see very few scripts from MCX.

        Can you please If I am missing something,

    Sir, Good Morning. The plug-in you have provided is working well. But Futures are not displaying. Today morning onwards it is not displaying anything i.e., current data. Is the trail over Sir.

  52. Praveen S says

    Hello Rajandran,
    Things seem to be going from bad to worse!!! Today no charts are getting displayed even for the cash segment and the date is displayed as Jan 70!!!!
    As regards the futures, the Mar futures symbols are still not coming up correctly and what are getting listed does not throw up any data whatsoever.
    Only thing though, the data is getting displayed in the quickwatch from which it is evident that the quotes are coming through and probably there is some display issue.
    It would be gr8 if the issues could be resolved.
    Best rgds,
    Praveen.
    PS: Incidentally, I am ok with working offline with the developers on the issues having handled s/w dev work earlier.

    Not sure when the demo expired.. but from what we have been seeing and reporting.. there were quite a few issues. So how are we sure when we subscribe that these issues have indeed been resolved? So how does one subscribe for this? I couldnt find anything on the firstcharting site. And have the issues particularly with respect to the futures symbols been resolved? And finally, will it support all symbols?
