General Discussion / Re: Chart And Technical screener
November 01, 2019, 02:36:58 AM
Hi Bharat,
Below are my answers:
Quote1) Where do I get Intra Day chart?
You can install Stockalyze and create intraday chart even in Lite version. The first tool on main Window if for intraday chart. Please give it a try.

Quote2) Can we create Watchlist along with Technical Indicator i.e. Technical Screener?
Yes, you can. Again, Stockalyze in Lite mode is fully functional and you can try it for free. Please test stock screener feature and see if it is what you want. You can make feature request if there is something more you want.

Quote3) For Perpetual Paid version why only minimum for 3 years and for other it is "Always"
It's a very good question. Please allow me to answer. The same Stockalyze can run in ProMode as well as LiteMode depending on if valid license is found. Perpetual license is forever in ProMode but we cannot give free updates forever especially if there are features with large implementation cost. So, for perpetual we guarantee you will get minimum 3 years of updates. But you can keep using Stockalyze in ProMode forever. For other licenses Stockalyze can be updated freely forever but the ProMode license itself is short lived and after that Stockalyze will run in LiteMode. LiteMode Stockalyze is free and can get updated freely.

Quote4) Most important how do I validate Indicator values i.e. RSI, CCI etc is correct as per standard formula.
In Stockalyze chart you can see the values of all indicators. If you have some other calculation you can compare some random values and see if they match.

Quote5) Is it possible to upload index wise or sector wise like Nifty 50 at one Go..
I am sorry I didn't get this question. What do you mean by upload?

Please feel free to ask if you have any more questions.

General Discussion / Re: Duplicate Symbols in Database
October 31, 2019, 04:29:12 PM
As of now all stocks symbols are unique within a single data-provider. So it doesn't matter which one you use. The downloaded data will be exactly same. If you want you can delete the duplicate.

Just for information, this wasn't the case earlier when google was also a data-provider in Stockalyze. Google's symbols were not unique but they were unique within one country. And exchange name was needed to download price data. Google no longer supports price history and so that problem is no longer there.

Regarding duplicate symbols I will find time to clean them up and also update them. But it may take some time.
I had been planning to add all indicators involved in Trading System definition when you open a chart from result of backtesting. Is it something for which you have asked or there is some other requirement. Please let me know. I can implement it after I am done implementing some other feature like ascii data import and such.
General Discussion / Re: Watchlists
October 30, 2019, 03:35:01 AM
You may try to edit the watchlist file directly. If you have added any item in watchlist then you can go to "%appdata%\Lunetek Software\Stockalyze" folder and edit watchlists.xml file directly. Make sure you have Stockalyze closed and ensure that data is not incorrect and be cautious about that.
I will not recommend this approach unless you wan to do it. :) Nothing wrong will happen, but you should take backup of watchlists.xml if you want to revert back to original in case of any mistake.
As you know Stockalyze uses data from Yahoo!, Tiingo, or Alphavantage. If the data provider misses a record Stockalyze cannot do anything about it. You can check on Alphavantage website and download the data of your stock and see if it has same data as Stockalyze shows. If you find Stockalyze shows different data, which I very much doubt, then please let me know.
As of now it is not possible. You can define conditions based on relation between 2 data-series.
But, there were similar query asked by other users as well.
I will think about it and will let you know if I make changes related to it.

Thanks for letting me know your requirement.

Feature & Enhancement Requests / Re: Missing Tickers
October 27, 2019, 08:30:00 PM
QuoteJust questions:
Shouldn't you require a name in order to add a symbol?
It is required when you manually add it. Since in the workflow of importing symbols for backtesting (or other purpose) you may not have company names in the list and just tickers. You may acquire this list by process of some scanning from somewhere in the internet and that might only have tickers. Making it mandatory to have names may make this feature unusable.

QuoteIs the company name retrievable through the download process?
As of now we only download price history.

Thank you for your quick feedback.
If you want to add name to already added securities then you can delete them in symbol selection dialog and add them again. This is the only way within Stockalyze. I hope this works for you.

QuoteYou are truly amazing at what you do.

Thank you. Stockalyze is my baby, that's all I can say. :)
No, as of now the conditions are always based on relation between data series.
Feature & Enhancement Requests / Re: Missing Tickers
October 26, 2019, 12:55:53 PM
I have added this feature to "provisionally" add symbols that failed to import. Provisionally here means that they will become part of Stockalyze database and at the time of Stockalyze closing all those symbols will be deleted for which there is no price data in the database. So, if you tried to import a list of symbols and you get error listing the symbols that did not import and you chose to add them provisionally but then you didn't actually run the backtesting and closed Stockalyze then all those provisionally added symbols will automatically get deleted. But if you went ahead and run backtesting and some symbols were good and price data for them got fetched and some were bad and no price data could be fetched then all those bad ones will get deleted automatically.

I hope this will solve your problem? Please let me know how it goes and what you think about it.
You can download the beta build from here.

Which data-provider you had selected? If it was Yahoo and you see this problem then it can in fact be a bug. Can you give me more details please? Which stock and which data provider?
Thanks for these details. And no, you are not bothering me at all. :) It is in fact good to listen to Stockalyze users and what they want. So, please keep posting about questions/ideas/suggestions and whatever. Regarding your 10 min and 240 minute charts. Let me give it a thought. It's not at all difficult. I will ponder on it.
QuoteI really don't like beta versions, but I'll give yours a try.
Thanks. I most appreciate it. :)
Beta versions of Stockalyze are actually next official release. We release under beta version to get feedback of users who requested the feature. If all is well then it becomes official release without any change. Those who had installed beta version doesn't even need to update to official release version because it is exactly the same. Also, for installing beta version or an update of Stockalyze, existing Stockalyze doesn't need to be uninstalled. You just run the new installer on top of existing one and it takes just few seconds. So, the typical problems that come with beta versions are not there in Stockalzye.

QuoteRegarding the ASC data, I'll provide you with 2 or 3 files with brazylian data (intraday) so you can see what I'm talking about. Hope you can solve it....
I think I can roll it out in few days. Please stay tuned.

Quotethe chat I mentioned are full of people eager to have a backtesting (intraday) at an affordable price and with a friendly interface, and Stockalyze fullfills both
I am glad you find Stockalyze interface simple to use. It has always been one of the main goal of design decisions of implementing features in Stockalyze.

Please wait for ascii data support. It will be available soon.
