    Hi, I was thinking a really nice integration for Optuma would be Refinitive Eikon/Xenith. There is tons of reliable data that can be sourced from their system; things like short interest for equities are available too.  It puts a small horizonal tool bar on the top of your screen that is a nice compliment as you can easily look up news and deeper research.

    Hi Jeff,

    I’ve looked at this a number of times but every time I ask for information from them, I get nothing. It is definately something I would like to get working but I have so many things on the boil that I usually move on to something else while I’m waiting for them.

    I’ll have a look at it again later in the year.

    All the best

    Mathew

    Mathew,

    MetaStock is the exclusive dealer of the retail version of Eikon, called Xenith. Although it may be a humbling phone call to make, I think if you reached out to them they would help get you the info you need to get started especially with the prospect of more data subscriptions due to more compatible software as I believe they are an income participant for that data feed. The Refinitve pro feeds are probably a similar structure as the retail ones I’m guessing for those who have them

    Thanks Mathew,

    What about the option to pull the MetaStock price data into Optuma, either legacy or current, from an offline storage created with the MS Downloader?
    While I do get their live data, I’m more interested in using the EOD data for scans and backtesting.

    Thanks and take care,
    Jerry

    Hi Jerry,

    You can click on “Data” -> then “Import Local Data” and select Metastock however it only reads the legacy format so you need to adjust to that setting in the DownLoader software.

    data - import local data
