Last weekend I completed work on 2 new data providers for EdgeRater:

  • MetaStock Data Provider
  • ASCII Dated Files Data provider

Yesterday I published these changes to the install location and made it a point release so that the current version is now 4.1. This is the only difference between V4.0 and V4.1.

What this means…

There are now four different ways of getting data into EdgeRater for analysis and prospecting; Yahoo!, Quotes-Plus, ASCII and MetaStock.

Say you wanted to create a trading strategy using the e-mini S&P 500 contract. You would of course need data from the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) in order to do this and CME data is not available from Yahoo! or Quotes-Plus.

ASCII data provider to the rescue…

I put togther a 10 minute video describing how to achieve this using the new ASCII data provider and you will find that here:
