Hi all

Just been looking at this site, and before anyone else registers, beware that you can't download a whole 5 years worth of data. You have to download every day individually.

I wanted to download the data into sharescope, but that could take forever :(

I'm still trying to work out why they want a phone number. :confused:

The data IS in metastock format - suggest you try again

....well first of all when one clicks the files it downloads in *.DAT format....it is not very well explained on that site (I presume it's your site..????)...one has to right click and then save as *.TXT file and then convert to metastock format and then use downloader...to eventually add to metastock data folder...

But it's free and available so am not complaining...

....hi just saw your message...apologies as i am still sruggling to use this site...

If you download the programme (MLdownloader) from MLdownloader then it will allow you 30 day use before you make up your mind...now in there you will find a *PDF manual...just follow that and you will be able to download the data from yahoo to metastock...


hope that helps...if not keep posting and will try to help...

reliable ?

Is the eoddata.com data correct ?
Looking at the Closing FTSE100 price for 6/10/03 they have 4,252.9
whereas everyone else seems to agree on a Close of 4,270.1

anyone any ideas ? am I missing something ?

and I think the DJI looks similarly off.
