Using a LiveCharts account 
to backfill data.


If you have an account with Lycos LiveCharts, www.livecharts.com , you can use their data to do backfill on the Fibonacci Trader program.

If you have eSignal, Quote.com, DTNiq, myTrack or any feeder that the Fibonacci Trader can download back data then DO NOT use this option, this is useful for feeders that have no historic data base to fill missing data, like Interactive Brokers or if you want to use just Livecharts data to update your charts (every 30 seconds) and no other real time data vendor.

First click on Utilities, Data Source, Select RT Data Vendor.

Check the option "If you have a Lycos LiveCharts account check here".

That will make the program know that you have an account.

If you also want to have the charts that have the Livecharts link to update every 30 seconds using Livacharts data then check the box "Reload data every 30 seconds".

Here is how you can set a chart to download data from your Livecharts account.

On the LiveCharts web program you will select the symbol you want to get the data

In this case we typed INTC, we also selected the interval 1 minute, click on CHART STYLE & TOOLS. The menu will open 

 Select the option Export Chart then click BAR DATA TO ASCii TEXT

This will export the data into an Internet Explorer window, this window will have in the address bar the link that we are looking for to use into the Fibonacci Trader program.

Note that the address bar above has the link we need, when you just click inside the Address box the link will highlight (if does not highlight move the cursor to the link, right click on it, click Select All, that will highlight the link), with the link highlighted, right click on the link and then select the option COPY, that will copy the link to the computer memory.

Go back to the Fibonacci Trader, get a chart where you want the data to be imported, in this case we open the Intel chart, double click the chart, the menu will open

Select the option LiveCharts Data, this will open the input box to type the link. Click inside the white box, then right click on the white box, a menu will open, click on PASTE. 

The link we got from the Internet Explorer will show on the white box, click OK.

A box to confirm the import will show, if all is correct click OK.

The data will then be imported in the chart.

The link that you paste will be saved with the chart, you can change it or clear it any time you want.

After that if your "Reload data every 30 seconds" is check then the chart will be updated every 30 seconds using Livecharts data.

Note that LiveCharts do not have too many bars back, 1 minute bars has about 2 days only.
