Amibroker Feeder is a C++ RTD client for Nest/NOW which Feeds realtime data to Amibroker. This utility also included a basic backfill tool to import VWAP statistics / Nest Plus Data table( josh1 has release automated backfill tool recently. You may want to use that instead ) The tools are based on RTNOW utility by josh1
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
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.
Ill check thread once in a while but not regularly.
