A new version of AmiQuote 3.12 is available for download from
http://www.amibroker.com/bin/aq3120.exe (100KB) – 32 bit version
http://www.amibroker.com/bin/aq3120x64.exe (120KB) – 64 bit version
This version features new data source: Quandl.com (US stocks, EOD data). Please do not forget to enter your AuthToken for Quandl.com in the Tools->Settings – it is required if you want to issue more than 50 download requests per day. AuthToken can be obtained from Quandl.com web site.
The upgrade is free for all previously registered AmiQuote users.
CHANGES FOR VERSION 3.12 (as compared to version 3.04)
- Yahoo changed the format slightly causing problems with Yahoo Fundamental Basic download. Incompatibility is fixed now.
CHANGES FOR VERSION 3.10 (as compared to version 3.04)
- Added new data source: Quandl.com (US stocks, EOD data).
- Removed code and settings for Lycos/Quote.com (taken over by eSignal and shut down) – no longer available
CHANGES FOR VERSION 3.03 (as compared to version 3.02)
- added “Max days” edit to control maximum intraday backfill length. Specifying lower than maximum allowed days results in faster download and less data to transfer. Google Intraday supports 1..15 max days for 1-minute bars and 1..60 max days for 5-minute bars. Yahoo Intraday supports only 1-day of 1-minute bars and only 1 and 5 days of 5-minute bars. Specifying other combinations (such as 2, 3 or 4 max days for 5-minute bars) for Yahoo results in retrieving all 5 days.
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.
IMPORTANT NOTE for AmiBroker 64-bit users:
There is also a 64-bit version of AmiQuote available from http://www.amibroker.com/bin/aq3120x64.exe (120KB) – 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.
