I have been perplexed by Amibroker.
First of all it is too expensive. So I can not buy it without learning/testing it.
There is no quality material available online which can tell about it and its usage.
What I have gathered so far is
It is free to test & 2. It is must for professionals 3. It requires data feed
Now few Qs that are hounding me
How to get free NSE Data on Amibroker? EOD and historical intraday will do. Also late live feed also do. As I just wanna test.
Hey @maddy_Des, I’d say a good starting point would be this
Amibroker would require you to have knowledge or learn AFL, the programming language to write strategies. Streak allows you to do the same without any programming knowledge. But Amibroker is extremely powerful in terms of everything you can test/deploy, they have been around for 2 decades.
Try using Meta Trader 4. it is same as amiBroker, And it is free but you have to subscribe to Data Feed according to your need which may vary to Rs.600 to Rs.3000 per month depending on, from where you are subscribing the data feed.
you can also visit https://www.investing.com which is a quite good website for anylise but the real time data is little bit delayed here. you can find all historical data here for your anayalise.
You can use AmiQuote provided on AmiBroker website which allows many free data sources for EOD data.
It also can get IEOD (1min) Google and Yahoo data which also gets imported in AB charts immediately. its lifetime registration costs USD 99 but you can use free version for downloading 10 scrips max. for Google (haven’t used Yahoo bcos I dont like anything from Yahoo/Hotmail kinds )
You can use multiple instances of AQ if you want to download more than 10 scrips at a time !
