eSignal plugin CHANGES for version 3.1.1 as compared to 3.1.0 (shipped with AmiBroker 5.60)
+ added ability to select whenever regular Close or Settlement price should be used as “Close” in end-of-day historical downloads. Affects futures only. If you want to change the setting go to File->Database Settings, click “Configure” and check/uncheck “Use Settlement price instead of close”. After changing this setting you would need to “Force backfill” to ensure all past data are re-downloaded to reflect new setting.
