Now2Ami - realtime datafeed to AmiBroker from the NOW terminal

Now2Ami - realtime datafeed to AmiBroker from the NOW terminal

This utility extracts intraday quotes from the market watch of NOW terminals in real time, and datafeeds the price quotes / volume (or OHLCV) to AmiBroker. The NSE NOW terminal provides live quotes for Equities, F&O, and currency scrips of National Stock Exchange, India.

Now2Ami can also backfill M1 (1 minute) stock prices for the current day, and for the last 15 to 20 days using Nest Plus.

The program aims to fill the need for those desiring better graphing and analysis abilities than available in NOW or Nest Plus, and preferring the use of AFL scripting features in AmiBroker. While graphs update real time, the stored database can optionally be aggregated to 1 minute OHLC intervals (to keep database size smaller) or fed as 'tick' data (more correctly, snapshot data) suitable for volume or range bars.

This data feeder is suitable for those who are looking for live updates of NSE stock quotes based on what is available in your trading terminal, and not on what is stored and retrieved from a server. An alternate feeder for NSE realtime quotes (and MCX as well) is Nest2Ami.
