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

APPLY OR NOT APPLY ADJUSTMENTS

     
We allow our users to select which adjustments they want applied to their historical database/s.
The Events section in Bodhi History gives you six selections: Structural; Distribution; Dividend; Capital; Contracts & Demergers. By default, all of these except Dividend are selected.
These selections create a universal change to all the formats you download and every Exchange you have selected. However, the distribution section in Bodhi History still gives you the ability to turn-off all adjustments on a individual directory. Therefore, giving you the choice of having some directories adjusted and some unadjusted.

Bodhi History adjusts data for the following reconstructions:

Selection Reconstruction Description
Structural Stock Split A reduction in the value of shares, which increases the number of issued shares in a corporation. A four to one split would see an investor that had 100 shares @ $4 each before the split now have 400 shares @ $1 each after the split. The total price of his investment would be unchanged.
Stock Consolidation The company reduces the number of issued shares, which results in an increase in the value of the shares. 400 shares @ $1 each before the consolidation becomes 100 shares @ $4 each after the split.
