I just finished a VaR project and have a bunch of intraday stock and index (mainly US) datasets (1min / 5 min / 1 hour bars) going back 10 years. Not sure hard it is to find this data but if it's of interest I can zip it and put it up for download.
I am not a forex trader, I trade mostly ES, JY, EC, BP, CD futures. I have been studying forex for some time for the sake of understanding better and have decided I might jump in. I lack the understanding of how forex data works, my understanding is that the big banks and brokers provide their data to data providers who then consolidate it into total volume. It seems to me I would want a data provider who provides the most banks input for their data. I am looking for tick data on up and a provider who would list their bank data in a way where I could identify the largest contributors, sort them somehow and develop an indicator to show me this big boy volume. Do any of you know which providers have the largest amount of volume providers and list them in way like market makers on L2? Also, I am not an expert here and would appreciate any corrections to my thoughts or assumptions. Thanks you MM
Hey Everyone, Since I'm trying to paper-trade an Options strategy that involves analyzing the "Greeks" (Delta, Gamma, etc.), I'm curious if anyone knew of any good tools for retrieving, searching, and analyzing the relevant data: especially if it's free! You can find data on Options Chains everywhere, but I could only find data on the Greeks from the Nasdaq website (here's an example for SPY: http://www.nasdaq.com/symbol/spy/option-chain/greeks). Unfortunately, it doesn't allow me to go directly to a particular date; instead it lists out all the strike prices for every Friday in a particular month across several "pages". In other words, if I want to find some data on options that expire -say- June 19, 2015, I'm greeted with a bunch of June 5th options on sheet "1 of 10" and I kinda need to guess which sheet has the data for June 19th. Feel free to check out the link to see what I mean. My initial solution was to import the data from each individual webpage to a spreadsheet, which is actually pretty easy to do with the "importHTML" function, then I could "massage" the data a little bit and find the appropriate data with a simple search (i.e. search "6/19/2015"). In fact, I made a rudimentary spreadsheet in Google Drive that brings up the Greeks from the Nasdaq website when you enter a ticker symbol, you can check it out with the following link and then clicking "File" > "Make a Copy" (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1X9VBq7TLUa0wreJG_6DOQAN7pz-k5lTBYhppty_EH24/edit?usp=sharing). I might make some more updates in the future, for example I might have the spreadsheet ONLY display data for a particular date. In the meantime, though, I hope this helps you all with your Options Trading =) Oh, and of course, feedback & suggestions would be fantastic! In fact, feel free to copy & modify my work: I just request that you share your contributions with the community
Hi all, I use Yahoo Finance as quote provider and there are a lot of wrong quotes. For example, a stock that has its price $5, next day price $120 and the next day $5 again. It is like a gap, but with a big %Change. Could someone help me with the code? I try this one, but it doesn't work: Buy = L > ((Ref(C, -1)*2); Sell = H < ((Ref(C, -1)*2); Filter = (Buy OR Sell) AddTextColumn( FullName(), "Name",100, colorDefault,colorDefault,300); AddTextColumn( WriteIf( Buy, "Buy", "Sell" ), "Signal", 50, colorDefault,colorDefault, 50 ); SetSortColumns( 4,-5) ; I would appreciate any kind of help. Thanks, Jaca
Hi, hope to save somebody some money. I have CMS forex free charting for Meta trader and VT Trading Systems. During fast moving markets the Meta trader delays and drops live data, also back fill data, sometimes skewing indicators. VT keeps up much better. I like the older VT trader version 2.0. it crashes less. I posted some forex trading ideas on the technical trading forum. Also I programmed some alerts for moving average envelope bands for VT or Quote tracker, posted on the coding forum.
