Premium Forex Service Information
September 5, 2011 - new additions to the service
60 new items have been added to the Forex service increasing the coverage to 64 currency pairs (as well as their "flips", or inverses), plus spot Gold and Silver in 7 currencies, for a total of 142 items. Details of the coverage can be found here.
Whilst the new markets will start updating on your computer, you will need to download and install a new data history from our website in order to receive the full histories for these new markets. Clients with a version of the Premium Forex updating program lower than 2.1.3 (eg: v18.104.22.168) will also need download and run the latest program installer at the same time.
You can get the latest Forex history installer from the Downloads area of our website.
You will need to have your username and password at hand to enter the Downloads area. If you have misplaced your login details, you can retrieve them here.
Once inside, save the full Forex history installer to a familiar location on your computer e.g. the Windows Desktop. (If you haven't purchased the full history, then the free 6-month installer will be available to you).
Then locate the history installer, run it and follow the prompts.
The history installer will rename the existing Forex data folder to "Forex(Previous Installation)" as a backup. Clients that use MetaStock Smart Charts can use our Smart Charts Copier to transfer their existing Smart Charts to the new Forex folder. Once you have no need for this backup folder, it can be simply deleted in Windows Explorer.
Trading Blox users can find an updated Forex Dictionary and information on how to add the spot Gold and Silver to the "ISOCurrencies.csv" file here.
AmiBroker users: after installing the new history, open AmiBroker, open the Forex-PremiumData database, go File > Database settings, click Configure, Retrieve Symbols, Ok and Ok.
