                                                   Importing ASCII data


2019-07-09 05:58:39

I have ascii data in the format: DD/mm/yyyy, HHSS, open, high, low, close, volume
I went to the ASCII importer, then specified the data file, went through each response. I noticed the symbol was added to the symbol list.
When I requested the chart, I was told there is no data.
How do I add ASCII data?
The ascii data is updated regularly. Will the new data be automatically visible in quantshare?

Any help is appreciated.

Well, I found the data. I was using daily data for some other charts. When I changed it to 5 min, the chart was visible.

Now, I need to find how to compress this data into 30min or whatever. Any help please.

Also, will the ascii data get updated when new data comes in the ascii file?

The data is not updated automatically. You need to parse the data again or create a downloader for this:

Regarding the compression, this is done automatically. If you have a 5-min data then you can request 30-min data in a chart or a trading system and QuantShare will automatically compress the data for you.

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.
