eSignal plugin 3.1.1 released

A new eSignal plugin 3.1.1 is available for download from:

http://www.amibroker.com/bin/eSignal311.dll (32-bit version)
http://www.amibroker.com/bin/eSignal311x64/eSignal.dll (64-bit version)

The plugin DLL files should be copied to “Plugins” subdirectory in the AmiBroker folder, overwriting old versions.

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.

eSignal plugin 3.1.0 (BETA) released

A new version of eSignal plugin (3.1.0 BETA) is available for download from:

UPDATE: Download links removed – eSignal plugin 3.1 (official) is included in the AmiBroker 5.60.2 setup program.

INSTALLATION:

  1. Just install AmiBroker 5.60.2 or higher – it includes updated eSignal plugin.

V3.1.0 CHANGES (as compared to version 3.0.0)

  • added (experimental) support for EXTENDED Intraday data (upto 14 years of intraday data)

To be able to use EXTENDED intraday data you need to:

  1. (required) subscribe to “EXTENDED Intraday data” add-on (using eSignal Account maintenance) – cost is $10 monthly
  2. (required) go to File->Database Settings, “Configure” dialog and check “Use Extended intraday data request” box
  3. (optional) increase “Number of bars” setting to make room for more data
  4. (optional) use “Force backfill” on already existing symbols to get full history or create new fresh database

If you turn on “Extended data request” in the configure screen but do not subscribe to extended data then backfills may not work or work slower than usual.

The default is the old method (“Extended data” turned OFF), so if you don’t change anything, the old method is used and plugin operates as previous versions and does not require any extra subscriptions.

IQFeed plugin 4.0.4 released

A new version of IQFeed plugin (4.0.4) is available for download from:

INSTALLATION:

  1. Make backup before installing.
  2. Download the file above and copy it to the Plugins subdirectory inside AmiBroker folder.

IMPORTANT:
V4.0.4 CHANGES (as compared to version 4.0.3)

  • implemented backfill queuing
  • number of simultaneous backfill requests set back to 4 (now thanks to backfill queuing requests are recorded and never lost)
  • stability fixes

V4.0.3 CHANGES (as compared to version 3.0.1)

  • IQFeed plugin uses new faster IQFeed API (4.8.1), downloads less and uses way more efficient method to backfill 1/5/15-second base time intervals
  • Added support for pre/after hours Level-1 stream. By default it is turned on. Can be turned off via Configure (uncheck “Use Extended Trading Last field”)
  • IQFeed plugin now can use upto 8 simultaneous backfills
  • added “You can’t close plugin window” on attempt to close working IQFeed window.

V3.0.1 CHANGES (as compared to version 3.0.0)

  • Removed limit of backfill length (full intraday history provided by IQFeed can be downloaded)

V3.0.0 CHANGES (as compared to version 2.0.2)

  • Implemented tracking of streaming symbols accross multiple clients via S,STATS
  • Uses new method of staring up IQFeed (command line), asynchronous operation (no wait for plugin)
  • Aux fields initialized properly to zero
  • Native 64-bit version implemented

IMPORTANT: this plugin uses NEW IQFeed Client 4.8.1.7
ftp://www.dtniq.com/beta/iqfeed_client_4_8_1_7.exe or higher. Older Client API versions will not work.

The biggest improvement can be seen when using 1-, 5- and 15- second databases.Thanks to new IQFeed API the plugin does not need to download tick data anymore to construct second bars as second bars are now natively supported by IQFeed API. This dramatically decreases the amount of data that needs to be downloaded and increases the speed of backfill for N-second databases.

Also improved is backfill in other intervals.
