I checked my mail ... but not got it. Can you resend it to immaindia (at) gmail(dot) com

I hv a query . i hv been using this datafeed in ami for about a month.earlier I used to get many years data in daily view but now since 2-3 days, I am getting data for the last 5 days only. what could be the possible reason

SAM on January 18, 2012 at 9:34 AM said...

Hi, Suresh ... Rather I am not using it regularly... am using Chartsdata regularly. But for you I tested it.

Datafeeder gives intraday data of 1 min for one day only, 5min data for 5 days only and yes EOD (daily) data for many years.(6 to 7 years)

And still no problem with it. I checked it.

Suresh said...

Dear Sam thanks for the reply

As mentioned earlier I too was getting EOD daily data of many years but for the last 3-4 days I am getting data for last 5 days only .One reason could be I used zoom function in that and probably after that data vanished but I am not sure . although i tried to rectify but could not do it. would appreciate if u could suggest some thing

Dear Suresh,

It seems all things at my end working fine... DATAFEEDER and also AMI.

Now do some checking...

1. Are you using AMI Trial Version? (If it is then your problem might have due to it)

2. Check DATABASE settings and do it either as per the told in the HELP file of DATAFEEDER. Or do as per my database setting which I shared at http://www.traderadda.com/2011/11/best-free-realtime-intraday-datafeed.html


3. Probably making setting as per the Help file would work. If not working then I will help you with TeamViewer or ShowMyPC.

thnks Sam
I reinstalled it and its working fine now.
one more query which one of these 2 datafeeds is better?


SAM on January 29, 2012 at 9:14 PM said...

Dear Suresh,

Actually both have their own Pros and Cons. But Chartsdata ... which I prefer and use also as I need only two -- Nifty and Banknifty. And Chatrsdata is limited version it gives only two scrips.

I prefer chartsdata because it gives you data backfilling for 15 days and also I feel that it gives bit more fast data than DATAFEEDER. ( Pls note this is my observation only and may be wrong)

But DATAFEEDER gives you only 1 day backfilling(1 min data) but positive thing about DATAFEEDER that it gives you many scrips at a time. But pls note that scrips other than Index are not RT they are littlebit late.

So my Vote goes to Chartsdata.(as I use only indexes)
