Historical data comes with its own software so you can mange the formats, directories and amount of History to load.

MAKING DATA SELECTIONS

     
  BodhiGold Users

If you are a BodhiGold user you do not have to make a selection as Bodhi History will read your configuration files and only load the data you have selected into the formats and directories you specified. Simply choose "Yes" when you are asked to use your BodhiGold settings.

If you have chosen not to use your BodhiGold settings you will need to make a selection from the Bodhi History menu. You may also need to change the default directories.

In the Bodhi History CD-ROM/USB, under the Finance tab, is a list of historical data products grouped by regions (i.e. Australia). By using the mouse to double-click on these regions, the selection is broken down into exchanges (i.e. Australian Securities Exchange). Double-click again on an exchange and the market groups (i.e. Equities, Indices etc.) available from that exchange are displayed. When you double-click on a market group you are taken to the entire list of symbols available from that Exchange.
