I have been working to create an organized collection of ticker symbols for AmiBroker. I have thus far used the Yahoo setup and EOD daily data. Recently, I begun subscribing to Lycos LiveCharts and so can now get intraday quotes in as little as a one-minute increment. I have done extensive research on the web and found a good deal of information, but am now posed with pulling everything together - a daunting proposition if it needs to be done manually. Before I undergo this effort I feel it may be of some use to put my plan here in the hope of getting some suggestions. Here is what I'd like to have: 3 Database. (1) Daily Data, (2) 5 or 10 Min Data?, (3) 1 Min Data Database One will have the most comprehensive listing composed of stocks, indices, futures, ETF's, breath indicators (adv/dec issues etc., provided by Lycos), select economic data (eg 30-day interest rates). I am not concerned with options. Databases two and three will smaller collections limited to tickers found in database one. Important factors: (1) Organization: (Markets should reflect what is traded with no undefined tickers)NYSE/NASDAQ/etc. NOT Amex Stocks, but Eminis yes (Sectors and Industries are less important - Yahoo's denominations would be fine but I do not care) (Groups) Stocks/Indicies/Futures,ETF's/Breadthalizers/EconData/ Miscellaneous/S&P500/S&P100/NDX100/DJIA/DJUA/DJTA (2) Aliases: eg: MSFT + "Microsoft Corporation" (3) Ability to update: Futures dates will change, S&P500 etc. components will change, ... Need an organized approach that can be performed monthly/semi-monthly I have found at various sites: A nasdaq market , an NYSE market listing, S&P500 listing, S&P500, NDX100, and SSF/ETF (Amex) listings. However, I am not sure if these listings all coincide with Lycos. Additionally, I will want to gather a daily history on as much as I can from Yahoo. The following is available at Lycos: "Breadthalizers:" http://help.lycos.com/scripts/qchar...HRoYWxpemVyJnBfcHJvZF9sdmwxPTEwNyZwX3BhZ2U9MQ**&p_li= Futures: http://help.lycos.com/scripts/qchar...WJvbHMmcF9wcm9kX2x2bDE9MTA3JnBfcGFnZT0x&p_li= Indicies: http://help.lycos.com/scripts/qchar...ggc3ltYm9scyZwX3Byb2RfbHZsMT0xMDcmcF9wYWdlPTE*&p_li= I have Macro Express 3 which will be of use automating some of the processes. So, labor is fine so long as it can be automated for the purpose of updating. Like I said, daunting. Any suggestions? Anyone whose already done this and wants to share their work?
