                                                   Metastock database date errors

Hi all,

I've just downloaded a new Metastock database from Premium Data providers.

When I've brought the database into Quantshare it has issues with the displaying dates past 31/12/2020 and has renamed all trade dates past this date as 01/01/1870.

I've also brought the data into Amibroker and there is no issue here and the dates display correctly.

Has anyone else experienced this issue with bringing in Metastock databases into Quantshare?

Thanks very much

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.
