How to get started with ShareChart
Installing ShareChart from the CD is easy. Simply follow the steps outlined below:
In order to use ShareChart you will first have to register it. Please follow the steps listed below:
The downloading program will fill in the Date Range by checking for the missing dates. We suggest that you do not alter the date range unless it is necessary. Select the market you wish to download data for by using the Market Drop Down Box.
The Downloader will automatically fill in the Date Range with the last day that data was downloaded and the most recent open market day. These dates should not be altered unless it is necessary.
Click the Download button and ShareChart will begin downloading the data. This usually takes only a few minutes but is dependent on your Internet connection speed and the markets to which you have subscribed. For example, the U.S.A. market is much larger than the Australian and so will take a little longer.Once the data download is complete ShareChart will alert you by popping up the dialog box shown below. Just click the OK button to finish.
Once the data download is complete then ShareChart will build the data index in order to update the charts. This takes only a minute and once done the charts will be up-to-date and ready to use.
For accurate end of day Australia data and charts, you must download data after 7.30pm Sydney time (AEST).
For accurate end of day U.S.A. data and charts, you must download data after 7.30pm Eastern Time (11.30am AEST)
