Hello,

 

I am using gannalyst s/w for my own research and charting and have HQuote as my data provider.

 

It seems like HQuote went out of business however.

In the past if yahoo would change something, HQuote would issue an update so one could continue downloading data,

having paid a one time fee for the HQuote software.

 

However, now that they are out of business and Yahoo changing something last week, I can't download

data any longer.

 

So I wonder if anybody here is in the same situation and has found a solution or if somebody could

suggest a free data download site.

For my trading, I am using ThinkOrSwim and IB.

 

Many thanks, gis

The Yahoo downloaders can be fixed - AmiQuote is one example.  Others like HSQuote decided that Yahoo is a pain, moved over to Google and that appears to be OK.

Hi Colion,

I was a HQuote user for many years, and the last update I did 19-.5-2017. So now I am looking high and low to find (free or cheap) alternative. I was looking at web page of AmiQuote, but you still need to make a conversion to have Metastock working,,,, am I right?

I was not referring to HQuote but rather HSQuote.  Since I posted the above HSQuote is now operational again on Yahoo, as well as Google but Yahoo is faster, and converts automatically to Metastock.  AmiQuote requires a separate conversion.

Hi Guys,

 

thanks for your replies. Got so busy with life that I forgot about this thread, I opened.

 

Will study what you all said and then come back to you.

 

Thanks, again, gis
