    I am wondering whether it is possible to get data from Interactive Brokers (lets say 5-10 days) and Feed it into Metastock.

    Has anyone accomplished this? and how?

    Any replies are appreciated.

    P.S. I have access to MetaServer, but I need the actual backfill so I don't spend hours on the net
  2. I used to use a software called MLDownloader - it backfills using Yahoo, not IB. Would that make a difference to you?

    Also, I will be evaluating a beta software from theirs that can interface with IB and feed real-time data to Metastock. I still can't believe Metastock can't use IB's API.

    Thnx for the reply.

    I know I can get data from Yahoo. But there is no hourly data. And that is what I need ...
  4. ahhh... I thought you needed daily data. Yeah, I'm not sure how to get the hourly data :)

    I can make Metastock real time intraday charts with IB data using software made by, but backfills are not possible. Hope this help.
