I'm completely new to Quantshare.

I'm trying to download quotes from Quotemedia, so I've downloaded the Quotemedia downloader plugin. I added a symbol, SKF.B:ST, and try to download quotes, and the downloader tells me that download is complete. However, there's still no quotes. What is wrong here?

If you select the downloader, click on "Update", update the symbol in "Fields" then click on "Parser", you will see that no quotes are downloaded. It looks like this item doesn't support "Stockholm" market.

Please use the default downloader to get data. Use the following symbol: SKF-B.ST

Is the default updater connected to Yahoo? The quality of the Yahoo data is extremely poor and I would prefer to use Quotemedia instead. Is it possible to somehow use Quotemedia instead? And how come that the Quotemedia downloader plugin only supports US stocks?

Yes, the default updater uses Yahoo. The Quotemedia downloader was shared by one of our members. I don't know why it supports only US stocks.

If you know any other data source that allows data exporting please let me know and I will create a downloader for you.

That would be very nice.

Using SKF-B.ST as symbol, the correspondent data source is

There is a column called "value" which I don't understand the purpose of.

Best Answer
Here is your downloader:

The "value" column is simply the trading volume (close * volume)

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.
