StockXloader 4 to get quotes from almost any stock exchange in the world
September 3, 2012 in Financial
[prMac.com] Stockholm, Sweden - BragIt releases version 4.0 of StockXloader. StockXloader 4 is a native Mac OS X application for fully automated downloading of stock market quotes and indexes from Yahoo! Finance to the technical analysis program ProTA or ProTA Gold from BeeSoft (http://beesoft.net), or to MS Excel or iWork Numbers.
Get historical quotes, or get "snapshots" of the latest price values for today (delayed intraday values). This way you can build your own database of ticker symbols containing historical quotes for the open/high/low/close of each day, plus current-day snapshots. You can get data for any stock exchange in the world that Yahoo! Finance carries quotes for.
StockXloader 4 builds on years of experience with StockXloader 3, but is completely rewritten with a new interface, new functionality. The major new feature in version 4 of StockXloader is a very rich ticker list editor, with which you can create any number of lists containing ticker symbols. You set the category for each symbol, such as stocks, indexes, mutual funds, futures. For each ticker symbol you can also give its full security name, supply a comment, disable or enable this particular symbol in this particular list. It supports full multiple undo! All this information is imported into the program of your choice when you download & import, along with the actual quote data and its dates/times.
StockXloader 4 keeps track of the last date you got quote values, and it does that individually for every ticker symbol, so the next time you download, it will fetch quotes starting after that date. So if a particular symbol lags, StockXloader will pick up where it was left last time. You can also see in your ticker list the last date, individually for each symbol. For snapshots, you can even see the last trading time for the given price data, displayed according to your local time zone and in your language's format.
Fully optimized for the new Retina Macs with high-resolution graphics and text. Compatible with Mountain Lion (10.8), Lion (10.7) and Snow Leopard (10.6).
A full and completely uncrippled version of StockXloader 4 can be tried out for evaluation up to 60 days.
Security: StockXloader 4 is signed with an Apple Developer ID certificate, so the Gatekeeper in Mountain Lion will check this cryptographic signature and find that this software comes from an identified developer, and has not been modified on the way to you.
