Advantages over using RTNOW
– No need to use excel. Uses less resources.
– More accurate data as we pick up every callback from RTD. If you keep chart open in Nest Terminal and compare, the bars should generally match. Lower Timeframe data is more accurate.


– Only for NEST / NOW
– No GUI. Create one if you can and share under GPLv3. Only need to setup some files and run exe anyway

Installation Instructions

1)Setup Amibroker DB (intraday settings) and Nest as explained in josh1 RTNOW instructions
2)Copy rtd.format, backfill.format to AmiBroker\Formats folder
3)Read and Setup settings.ini in NestRTD / ABBackFill. For ‘Now’ make sure to change RTDServerProgID value to Now.ScripRTD along with scrip ids / field ids
4)Once setup is done, run the exe ( For Backfill, Fill the data in VWAP.txt/DataTable.txt first )
5)Example settings for many stocks by Einstein – settings.ini
6)If you get c++ runtime missing error, install it

1)Tools are released under GPL 3.
2)This is free for life. This is not a money making idea .There is no one time fee, there is no regular fee. There are no server checks.
3)You are free to modify code and to redistribute. If you distribute it, you will have to release it under GPL3 giving same rights to others as i give to you.

No support is provided. The tools have been tested on Nest and Now with help from josh1. I dont have time to hand hold anyone.
Please take effort to read instructions. Please help others if possible. Wiki in github can be edited publicly.

    If this works as what you say, then would really look forward to some kind of help here to get data free for Amibroker as I am not too much of a technical person to full understand the process of getting this set-up done. I guess screen shots would also help me too.

    Thanks for all your guidance and inputs as always.

I shall remain very much thankful to you if you can provide me the application through my e-mail address.

    Thank you.
