Good Evening.

Requirement - Reading/Copying Data from a Trading Terminal to Excel or a local database:

Have recently seen a Demo of a Pro Trader Trading Terminal which is providing a Option Chain data similar to Nse web page option chain.
The terminal does not support excel import feature and hence cannot link this to excel.

I am looking for ways to get this terminal data ( screen giving this option chain ) to excel.

Requesting suggestions from developers. We can discuss the feasibility here and quote on pm.

Thanks.

Sir @mohan.sic
when i did not know about Josh Sir's rtd , i had tried many different ways to get data from nesttrader to amibroker....
one way was to get control handle of marketwatch window through autoit n send ctrl A and ctrl C to it n take data in windows clipboard n then create text file n then push to amibroker,
this was not right approach for rtd data even though the whole process was happening in 1 second, and it was freezing nesttrader after some time.....
if data is needed after every 5 mins then initially this approach might be okay...
good luck :)

Josh sir rtd - what data fields does it cover ? any thing on options OI ?

Autoit & ctril A ----- Is it manual at every interval required or it does the work in background ? More over i cannot keep the market watch screen open all through. I minimize it and do my regular work on same laptop. I mean I watch it all through when i am free on the day or else I keep changing between trading platform and other work, so how can it copy the market watch to clipboard when i am on other task ?

You dont have to copy paste, you can simply read the contents of the control ( which is a ListView usually). That should be fast enough. For ahk, you can look at controlget.

Anyway, in my experience if you have too many scrips in marketwatch, Nest/NOW can slow down and that can affect ordering stability.
