Recently AmiFeed has started NSE realtime data feed service for Amibroker. Apart from NSE, they are also supporting MCX commodity data. The best part of their data service is that, they are now offering Amibroker data feed free trial for 3 full months. In this post, I will discuss how to download and use the free data offered by AmiFeed.
First, download the installer file by clicking the download link below. You need to unlock the download link by using any of the social share buttons below.
Once you download the installer, save it to your computer, as I have saved it on my desktop.
Now run the installer file and follow the step by step instruction to install the file on your computer. The last step will ask you whether you want to create a desktop shortcut for the program, select YES.
Now once the AmiFeed is installed on your PC you run the program by clicking FINISH in the AmiFeed Setup Wizard window.
This will run the AmiFeed program as shown in the image below:
Now you need to register the program by putting your name, phone number and email id on the registration screen. Click on REGISTER and this will give you access to Amibroker data feed free trial for 3 full months.
Now restart AmiFeed. This will automatically run your Amibroker and create a database called AmiData into it. You may need to change the database to intraday database by selecting the BASE TIME INTERVAL to 1 minute.
You can see that the license expiry date is after 3 months. In my case, the expiry date is set at 22-03-2018. You can select your market EQUITY, FUTURES or COMMODITY and select scrips. Once you select scrips you can add selected scrips to your market watch by clicking ADD SELECTED button.
You will see that the scrips are automatically added to your Amibroker and Amibroker data feed will start running. There is a backfill option beside each scrip in your MarketWatch. And there is an AUTOFILL option available which will automatically backfill your Amibroker.
While for the first time use, the initial backfill will take some time you can see your Amibroker data feed free trial will start flowing data in your Amibroker and candles will start forming. The prices will be live as shown in the image above.
Once your backfill is complete you can see that the charts will become continuous and you can backfill for up to 60 days. You can use this Amibroker data feed free trial for 3 full months now and can test the beta version. I would like to hear your experience in this regard in the comments section. Remember, this is just a review and the author or our website is not at all related to any data vendor.
