Can I download to excel the price data for Open Hi Low Close & Vol. w/o paying Pro vs Extra? Cost?
Hi As a New Subcriber, asking anyone to help me download the historical data on stocks into my excel so
I can work on my own formulas/// It is blocked as an Extra level member
fyiI am not currently trading, I am developing and have very limited funds at this point. The $ difference between Pro and Extra per month, is burden (There of course independent sites offering some forms of free data ( no volume, and no spreads) but it is not what I am looking for.) I want to synch it up with custom chart developement at stockcharts.com.
Looking for help on this, from an empathetic soul.
If in fact your account level does restrict you, it may be a violation of the user agreement for anyone to share with you.
Any comments welcome.
Most indicators have static parameters - that is, they capture and manipulate data from a fixed period of time. The problem is, market moves develop over variable periods of time. In other words, the change in supply/demand balance that governs the direction of prices may reverse all at once, in one or two bars, on huge volume, or gradually over several or dozens of bars with variable volume. Indicators can't capture those extremes, so they cannot always be "right". Instead, some are better in some markets, and others in different markets. So, a quest for the "holy grail" will be lengthy, and quite possibly, like the original quest, disappointing.
It seems to me, the most useful aids to decision making for traders (not necessarily investors, who should be looking at fundamentals) are price channels and fib lines. These are pretty good for identifying POSSIBLE support and resistance - meaning, price intersections with these levels should be watched closely for a change in the supply demand balance.
