Change EdgeRater to download TOS indices like $ADAD

Post by joel847 »

Hi Chris,

Since EdgeRater is now intercepting Yahoo data requests and sending them to Thinkorswim (TOS), I would like to get access to TOS indices such as the NYSE advance decline difference $ADAD and others. Since TOS provides these symbols for charting purposes it should be possible to download them just like a stock symbols but that is not happening currently. Maybe a simple change in the software could allow this to happen.

Regards,

Joel

If you look in the parameter tab /under the type box, there is a symbol setting that you could use. But that symbol would also have to be in you symbol list.

I created symbol lists of the market Breadth indicators from HGSI into Edgerater and they download correctly,Plot correctly,
but when I try to make indicators with them in the custom chart script, I get error messages because of the $ sign in front of their symbol letters.
