The aim is to speed up the downloading process by making requests to active and valid stocks only (valid symbols).

First, you should use your downloader to retrieve quotes for all stocks or securities in your database.

After the first download, you may notice that your downloader did not retrieve data for several stocks. In the next download, we would want to ignore these stocks.
You may also notice that there are no new data for some stocks. We also want to discard these inactive stocks in the next downloading process.


- Select "Download" then "Download Manager"
- Select your end-of-day data downloader (Example: Historical Stock Market Data)
- Open the downloader by clicking on "Open Selected Downloader"
- Select "Symbols" tab, clear all conditions then add a new "Quotes" condition
- Under "Values" column, select "Date of last quote"
- Select a "From" and "To" dates. Example: 20/01/2012 and 24/01/2012
- Click on "Start Downloading" to get new quotes for stocks that already have data between the 20 and 24 January 2012.

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.
