I am trying to connect to Meta stock database but when i select a symbol there is no data to show and a message that "No downloader by symbol associated with intrday database"
and i will go to download manager to configure it but i see only applicable configuration for websites only? how can i configure the local folder.
BTW i connect to the local file of Metastock Download--->External Database.

Any Advise?

When you add Metastock files in "Download -> External Database", you can tell QuantShare to add metastock symbols to your database.
When referencing these symbols (in a chart for example), you will get data from Metastock.
If you select a symbol that doesn't exit in Metastock database then you will get no data (unless you have data for that symbol in QuantShare database).

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.
