The second part of the programme is down loading data,which can be accessed either from nseindia.com or yahoo finance .com.

3. The next part is down loading daily price from nseindia.com; for this you down load bhav copy for the day and make some changes in the bhavcopy ie the format of the file should be in the following sequence ie tickername ,date,open ,high ,low,close,volume always change Traded quantity to volume otherwise volume will show 0000and save the bhav copy in a folder; click on the import export button,click on the importprice filebutton, chang date in the box,tick the dont add new company button,and finally click importprice file button, that day file is saved in the chart like this you can ad every day prices in to the chart.

One more point regarding correcting the column headings. The second column contains the identifier for type of series like EQ, BE etc. This column should be deleted. The last column contains dates but title is time stamp. Change this to Date and save back.

:) I started using this very successfully. Thank you so much.

I would like to bring forward two things.

1) To make the sequense of tickername ,date,open ,high ,low,close,volume, I always bring the date column (which is actually the last column) to the second position. Is this really required ?

2) How can I update the ticker list of FChart incase of any new listing.

Kindly help .

Dear Jaydebajay,

In response to your query regarding Fc Chart customisation,the sequence of tickername,date,o,h,l,c,volume is compulsory while updating the daily EOD (Bhav Copy from Nseindia).

Regarding updation of new symbols first add the new symbol to the ticker file and save in the folder. Then run the ticker file using 'import & export button' and click on the ' other ' button.The new symbol will be added in the symbol column.Automatically your new symbol will be updated that day onwards.

Dear sankoorikal,

Thank you very much for the quick confirmation.

However, after following all the processes of running FChart, I found the thread 'F C Chart Customisation using Nse Data' most useful and easiest.

Thank you again.

Dear sankoorikal,
Thank you very much for the information about datafeed from www.nseindia.com. I have worked for 2-3 days, it worked nice. But I do not know how to download data for nifty index. There is no volume for this and sometimes it does not give the data in correct way.
I request your help for this.
Once again thaks for such useful information

Dear Mr. Mfire,

You can get nseindex data from nseindia.com under the historical data link of equity. There is no volume for Index, but for nifty futures.
