AmiBroker - Using Our Forex Data
The first installation step below requires a data update to be performed. If you have purchased a data history as a stand-alone item (i.e. without a
subscription to the Forex updating service), then you will need to sign up for a no obligation 3-week free trial so that the installation can be completed successfully
(be sure to sign-up with your existing username).
The first thing you need to do (if you haven't already done so) is install the "Premium Forex" updating program and a Forex data history.
Installation instructions can be found here.
After installation is complete, open the "Premium Forex" program and click the "Update" button to perform an update.
Close AmiBroker and Premium Forex if they are open.
If you haven't already downloaded the Amibroker Forex Integration Script Installer from our website, do so now.
Once it has been downloaded, run the Installer.
Go File > Open Database and navigate to "C:\Program Files\AmiBroker" then select the Forex-PremiumData folder
so that the entire path reads something like "C:\Program Files\AmiBroker\Forex-PremiumData".
When you first open the database, it may say "Not enough data available."
If it does, go Tools > Forex-PremiumData - this runs the maintenance script and it will populate all of the Forex data.
If desired, you can set the current database as the default so that it opens automatically when AmiBroker starts.
To do this, go Tools > Preferences, select the Data tab and under the box marked "Default database path" click the "Current" button then OK.
