  • Create complex trading systems and conduct technical analysis calculations directly in your worksheets.
  • Build and back test your strategies involving more than 1 scrip eg. pair trading strategies
  • Very useful for tracking a large number of options simultaneously eg. Tracking their open interest / price variations, while studying the put / call ratios & option Max Pain analysis

To be able to enable this ability and more, you will need to exploit the Excel’s RTD Function. The RTD function is an excellent way to retrieve real-time data from a program that supports COM automation.

Some older applications used DDE to import real-time data into Excel but this is now a thing of the past as we have the more powerful and versatile RTD function in Excel.

    hi, can we get the ABSOLUTE VALUE OF CHART , EG, MACD VALUE ONLINE IN THE EXCEL FORMAT OR JAVA FORMAT, PLS DO REPLY, THANK YOU

      It’s possible, but not from the server. you will need to derive these by calculating the same, by either doing it directly in the excel spreadsheets (if possible) or else by developing a specific macro for the same.

      I guess you would need to connect with some macro experts who could help you with this.
