August '98 Monthly Update


New Importer News!

A new Italian MegaQuote importer is now working. Currently, it will
bring in multiple files of EOD stock data, and importation of index data
will soon follow. Data is supplied by a paid subscription service, and
has follow-up corrections the next business day, making this data very
reliable.

=============================================


Introduction:

The DalleySuite is a collection of mainly data importers for AmiBroker.
These are very easy-to-use programs. You collect the data, import it,
Save the changes, and you are done! No manual editing or data entry,
ever! Data entry can also be delayed for your convenience.

The programs have matured over the last year or so, so they are very
robust. They are getting smarter as I learn, too. Data sources have been
narrowed down to reliable quote servers, with quality data. Free Internet
sources are used, when possible.

Please test the *free demo* before it gets uploaded to the Aminet. Some
features are being improved for the main demo programs. Notice of the
release date will be made here and my page, after the docs are updated.

If you have questions about AmiBroker, I will answer you the best I can,
but we can all learn from each other on this mail list, too.

Enjoy,

=============================================

GLOSSARY:

DALLEYSUITE = a set of support programs to import stock data, per country
This could involve a number of different data formats, depending upon
just what is available, or usable: complete/partial exchanges, portfolios,
intra-day + InstaQuotes and/or EOD quotes, histories, etc.

QUOTE = stock price info, mainly: symbol, open, high, low, close & volume

EOD = End-Of-Day, after market hours; intra-day = during market hours

MEGAQUOTE = a script which imports a complete/partial exchange's EOD dataset
MegaQuote scripts build your own histories for all stocks, if none are
available on the net. Most will do extra calculations.

INSTAQUOTE = imports a single quote instantly from a terminal's screentext

PORTFOLIO = a quote which has two or more quotes in it

REPORT PANEL = final window which displays useful info (such as A/D data)

HISTORIES = long sets of EOD data - get these before you ever invest!

CANDLESTICKS = price bars which show more info visually - use them!

MULTIPLE or UNLIMITED = imports all available files of a similar format
example: 8 portfolios or 47 quotes (demo does both at once!)
