It would be good to have orderbook data imported to Excel. Also, the software may be more useful if you are able to allow some form of DDE mechanism to allow access to all this data, so softwares other than you mentioned can also connect to ODIN.

Hello Ankit,

There is Data/Import Data link in excel. If your external data provider has given this link then you can bring the data in excel and plot, I believe. However, plotting real-time changing data in excel may be too computationally intensive.

I am sure you could write some VBA scripts which can do this with a cron job every few minutes or so.

Techdump,
Can you please let us try the beta version so that we can give you suggestions for improvements in the software.
If you could upload the file it would be really great.
I would like to know that where do you source the backfill data from ODIN, because I do not know of any historical data (5 day)being stored from ODIN.

Dear All,

Please find attached the snapshots of my tool "ChartsData".

I have added "BhavCopy update" to the tool, which will download both NSE & BSE bhavcopies from nseindia and bseindia websites for the chosen date and corresponding scrips data will be imported to the specific TA software.

As I am in the process of testing data validation (got some problems with Metastock data updations), i will upload the first version as soon as the problem is resolved.

I want the tool to be neat & clean as you guys use, else i assume i couldn't be able to reply to your questions.

As a software engineer, i came to stock market a year back with the introduction of Saint's "Teach a man to fish..." and started learning the TA with the intention of earning in the stock market. But i found it difficult to see the real time data charting as they cost more than what we earn initially... so i started my research some 8 months back and developed this tool.

A lot of guys helped me to understand the bits and bytes of share market and i take privilege to introduce my tool to Traderji members.

Special thanks to Saint for the wonderful writing. It helped me like a lot of beginners to enter into the stock world and helped me to learn A,B,C of Stock market.

Please check out this thread later for the tool in a few days.

Happy Trading.

Logan
