StockXloader 4 gets a free update to fit Yosemite, plus a new feature

August 14, 2014 in Financial (E)

[] Stockholm, Sweden - BragIt today is proud to announce the release of version 4.2 of StockXloader. It 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, or to MS Excel or iWork Numbers, or you can drag & drop a text file for import into other applications. The free update to version 4.2 brings compatibility with Apple's upcoming OS - Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite, plus a new feature.

New in Version 4.2:
You can now move the folder that contains your ticker lists and temporary items to a location of your choice. It could e.g be Dropbox if you want to have all files synchronized between two computers.

Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite compatibility: Because of changes in how Yosemite treats background processes, StockXloader 4.1 could halt indefinitely when it has downloaded all items. Version 4.2 of StockXloader solves that in a robust and backward compatible way.

Mac OS X 10.10 brings several changes to the graphics and the layout of buttons and size requirements of text fields etcetera. StockXloader 4.2 has been adapted to make it fully compatible, avoiding any clipping of graphical or textual items etcetera.

Mac OS X 10.9.5 and Mac OS X 10.10 brings new security requirements where Gatekeeper no longer accepts applications signed in Mac OS X 10.8. StockXloader 4.2 supports the new requirements.

Features Of Stockxloader:
It collects historical quotes and "snapshot" quotes 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 new functionality. It has 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 converted to your local settings and time zone.

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.

System Requirements:
Fully optimized for Retina Macs with high-resolution graphics and text. Compatible with Yosemite (Mac OS X 10.10), Mavericks (10.9), Mountain Lion (10.8), Lion (10.7) and Snow Leopard (10.6). 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.

A full and completely uncrippled version of StockXloader 4 can be tried out for evaluation up to 60 days.
