CONFIGURE FOR INSIGHT TRADER

     

Insight Trader is a charting program supplied by Insight Trading. It accesses data from BodhiGold's BodhiOne format.

    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.

    These directories will only be created if you have selected symbols that fit their criteria. (❗) Note - Directories are created automatically on your first download.
