    Backfill In Odin Diet Charts

    This was a problem with my setup - auto updating the version after Odin Diet log-in caused the problem. When I reinstalled using full setup file downloaded from my broker, it was able to display charts properly with data starting at market open time. -- Milind

    Backfill In Odin Diet Charts

    My broker upgraded the software over the weekend to Odin Diet version 10.0.0.2. I don't see any functional improvement in it. On the flip side, it doesn't do data backfill on intraday charts. Are others facing the same problem with this new version, and any work arounds? Milind

    Request to review below portfolio

    It will be best to stick to 5 or so funds. Gold is different asset class, I won't comment on it. - I would keep only one of HDFC Prudence, Top 200, HDFC Equity. Note, all of those are good funds. My preference is to HDFC Equity. - Principal Emerging Blue Chip - skip, it doesn't have any...
