Think or Swim gets it, then organizes the data into charts for me.

I want get an Excel spreadsheet of High/Low/Close data for, let's say, the Wheat contracts of 2009. How can I do this?

I am a newb to programming for Futures. If the above problem is my goal, how can I achieve it? Perhaps programming is unnecessary.

P.S. I am not sure where or how to get the data in the first place. This may be a complex problem, so I am posting it in several Subreddits/Forums. Any insight anyone can give would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
Sparrow

As i have read your Message seems that i have not understand
a Major Thing.

The Major thing is,

which is your Data Provider for to get first the Wheat 2009 Data ?

If i suppose that is Reuters DataLink:

http://www.equis.com/products/endofd...link/?overview ,

and you use Metastock,

then you must go to the Downloader and to start to download first,

Wheat Data for 2009.

I believe that still exist in their Databases.

Then you must use the Function: Convert of the Downloader and to transfer these Data's to Excel.

Then to make your Work there.

Kind Regards,

George Kanellopoulos.

Hello Again.

I have an Account there too but i do not trade with it,

so active.

From time to time ThinkOrSwim upgrade their Software with New Functionalities.

I do not know honesty,

if you can take that kind of Data that you want from there.

But i know that have friendly Online Support,

so,

you can contact with them and to ask for your Issue.

For further Help to your Issue,

i know that exist 2 other Companies that you can buy that kind of Historical Data.

One is the: TickData: http://www.tickdata.com/ ,

and the other is the:

CQG Data Factory: https://www.cqgdatafactory.com/ .

By the Way,

honesty,

i do not know from where you can take that Data without to pay nothing.

A Solution to that Issue,

is to provide that Service your Broker/s to you.

In that Case you must contact except of ThinkOrSwim and with the other Broker/s that you possibly have.

Kind Regards,

George Kanellopoulos.
