ELWAVE® compatible data feeds and file formats

 

ELWAVE supports a large number of end-of-day, intraday and real-time data feeds and file formats. Click on a data feed category on the left to see a selection of suitable data vendors.

NOTE: Real-time support requires a Premium Service Contract. This is the most economical way to add our Universal Data Server (UDS) real-time module to your ELWAVE license.

End of day

Below is a list of file formats and data vendors that support end-of-day data. Data vendors that support real-time as well as end-of-day data are listed in the Real-time section.

Datafeed / format Notes
Worden Brothers
TC2000/2007
Free 14-DAY trial available. EOD data only. UDS ServerFeed module not required.
Please note that TC2000 version 12 is not compatibly with any 3rd party software. You can and will need to install TC2007 on your PC in order to use Worden Brothers' data services with ELWAVE.
Google Free end-of-day data, UDS ServerFeed module not required
Yahoo! Free end-of-day data, UDS ServerFeed module not required
MSN Free end-of-day data, UDS ServerFeed module not required
Tai-Pan EOD

German data vendor
Anforderung 4-Wochen-Test 25 Euro, unverbindlich

MarketMaker German data vendor
ASCII Intraday also supported. Virtually any type of ASCII data file can be imported into ELWAVE®, provided that one file contains historical data for one symbol/chart in tabular format.
MetaStock Intraday also supported (not real-time/stream)
Note: ELWAVE is capable of reading the MetaStock data file format which means you need to have MetaStock data files on your hard drive in order for ELWAVE to be able to import them. MetaStock 13 and up connects directly to either DataLink (EOD) or Xenith (real-time) and the data never gets written to disk in MetaStock file format so there is no way to import MetaStock 14 chart data directly into ELWAVE. You might be able to use the 'Downloader' to dowload data from DataLink or Xenith and store it in a format that ELWAVE can read but we have not tested this ourselves. If you are getting your data from a data vendor other than DataLInk/Xenith from Equis/Reuters who happens to provide it as MetaStock data files this will continue to work just fine.

DDE
Dynamic Data Exchange
A generic method of getting real time updates into ELWAVE®, supported by many data vendors. Does not allow retrieval of historical data. You will need to export, import and then maintain your own historical database. If your data vendor is directly supported by ELWAVE® we strongly recommend that you connect through the UDS ServerFeed module. We can only provide limited support for using DDE.

MetaStock

Note: No real-time/streaming support, only intraday history
Note: ELWAVE is capable of reading the MetaStock data file format which means you need to have MetaStock data files on your hard drive in order for ELWAVE to be able to import them.
