Recently I gone thru utility created by Josh. this utility really helps. Now you can get live data from your trading terminal to charting software for free.
For easy implementation of this utility I have prepared video tutorial.
This utility can save some good money. It’s boon to retail traders who are trading around 10 symbols at max.
This utility fetch realtime datafeed from NOW, NEST, ODIN, Google, Yahoo, to Excel 2007 and pull it into AmiBroker and Fcharts. The good part is utility is open source and free. It also have feature to backfill data from terminal. Every day eod, you should backfill data for new symbols or old symbols (if your terminal was down for sometime).
You can also use http://www.volumedigger.com/Software/Data_Downloader.aspx for data backfill from google or yahoo.
Please understand this is not replacement for data being provided by data vendors. Data provided by approved data vendors is really fast & light weight and highly reliable. Data vendors applications are well tested, scalable, reliable, supported solutions as well.
