AmiQuote 3.02 released

A new version of AmiQuote 3.02 is available for download from

http://www.amibroker.com/bin/aq3020.exe (95KB) – 32 bit version

This version features a brand new Intraday (1-minute and 5-minute bars) backfill data from Yahoo Finance and Google Finance
Yahoo Intraday and Google Intraday include all US stock markets and some international markets covered by Yahoo Finance.
Normally you receive 15-minute delayed data. The delayed intraday data from Yahoo Finance and from Google Finance are free (no subscription necessary).

If you, however, have Yahoo RT subscription and you are logged into your Yahoo Finance account using Internet Explorer and you marked “Allow cookies” option in AmiQuote Tools->Settings then you might get non-delayed intraday data (at your own risk and subject to change as Yahoo may change authentication methods).

If you don’t know the symbol, you can use Yahoo Finance symbol lookup:

IMPORTANT:

AmiQuote is nothing but specialized web browser/downloader. You are using 3rd party web pages/services (Yahoo/MSN/Google/Finam) available to the public and AmiQuote acts like Internet Explorer or Firefox. The availability of data/web pages depends on those 3rd parties and may change in the future. The financial data downloaded from public web sites such as Yahoo Finance/MSN/Google/Finam are for personal use only. Consult 3rd parties’ Terms of Service for details. For actual trading we recommend using paid data sources that provide higher data quality and reliability.

NOTE for AmiBroker 64-bit users:

There is also a 64-bit version of AmiQuote available from http://www.amibroker.com/bin/aq3020x64.exe (117KB) – but please note that if you installed AmiBroker 64-bit to directory different than C:\Program Files\AmiBroker then you would need to pick correct AmiBroker 64-bit installation directory manually, since this small update package would not detect 64-bit AmiBroker installation automatically.
