CONFIGURE FOR FCHARTS

     

FCharts2 SE is a charting program created by SpaceJock.com. This program imports the BodhiOne format created by BodhiGold. If you haven't already downloaded and installed FCharts2 SE, you can do so by going to this link and following the installation instructions.

    The BodhiOne format uses the following default directories:
  • c:\Data\BodhiOne\%Source%\Stocks => If you are downloading information from the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), this directory will contain any equity and/or index symbols you choose (ie. BHP and/or XJO etc.).
  • c:\Data\BodhiOne\%Source%\Options => If you are downloading information from the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), this directory will contain any Exchange Traded option symbols you choose (ie. AGLQ17 and/or BHPN98 etc.).

    The %Source% is a wildcard and will be replaced with the 3 letter Exchange Code of any Exchange data you download. This ensures that the symbols for each exchange are kept separate which stops any incorrect data being written into instruments which have the same symbol.

Configuring BodhiGold to use the BodhiOne data format.
  1. Install BodhiGold using the installation instructions.
  2. Once installed, launch BodhiGold. If this didn't happen automatically when you finished installation double-click the BodhiGold icon on your desktop or select it from your Windows® Start menu. Windows® 7 or above = Start ➔ Infosoft ➔ Freeway

  3. A Confirm box will appear asking you to connect to the Internet to finish the installation. This process requires downloading files from the Internet. Make sure you are connected to the Internet then click the Yes button.
