QuantShare allows you to export historical end-of-date, intraday, tick and custom databases data to CSV files. CSV stands for comma-separated values. It is a simple file format that stores tabular data (text and numbers) in plain-text form.

Steps:

- Select "Data" then "Edit Databases"
- In "Database" pane, select quotes (EOD data), tick, intraday or custom database
- In "Symbols" panel, select a security by its symbol name
- If there is data for the selected security then the right grid will display the different database columns and the trading data for each trading period. For the EOD database, you will have the following columns: Date, Close, Open, High, Low, Volume and Open Interest.
- Below the grid, click on "Export to CSV"
- Type the file name then click on "Save" to export the data


Example of a CSV file:

02/10/2003 00:00:00;20.72;20.82;20.9;20.58;2410700;0
01/10/2003 00:00:00;20.96;20.87;21.21;20.76;2385800;0

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
