September '98 Monthly Update


News: I will be on vacation until Labour Day.


Introduction:

The DalleySuite is a collection of, mainly, AmiBroker data importers.

These are very easy-to-use programs: collect the data, import, Save, and
you are done! No manual editing or data entry, ever! Data entry can also
be delayed, for your convenience.

The programs are robust and highly customised. Data sources have been
narrowed down to reliable quote servers, with quality data. Free Internet
sources are used whenever possible.

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

Free Demo: http://webhome.idirect.com/~ddalley

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

Enjoy,

Donald Dalley

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

MegaQuote.ASX - Improved!

The Australian data importer has been much improved and, for the most
part, is completed:
- all index or stock data quantities are configurable now
- made ticker size configurable (3-6 characters)
- transfered the config system to ENVARC
- assistance for ensuring all data is available is much improved
- data paths with spaces are now usable
- added code error reporting (syntax, failure & error)
- import times for ~2700 tickers have been under 4 minutes!

The Italian data importer has been improved:

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

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, indices, 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 can 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 panel which displays useful info (such as A/D data)

HISTORIES = long sets of EOD data - build 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!)
