for Yahoo symbols, just go to the relevant yahoo finance page to find them. For the Dow it's ^DJI for ex.
Anyone has this problem with QT, backfill now works since I downloaded the patch but around the end of the equity session, it's like QT resets and I lose all data for the day, it starts with stock symbols then all symbols. Every day I have to backfill at the start of the session. And btw Yahoo hist- backfill doesn't work for me .
I already tried w ^DJI but it doesnt work. Anyway it's only from today because on the past days i didnt have any problems...
"Every day I have to backfill at the start of the session"
never experienced such a problem...r u sure that it isnt somethin else that cause it? like a prog that cleans things up
