  1. Enter new database name and click on ‘Create’ Button.

  1. From the ‘Data Source’ drop-down box, select ‘Nimbledata RT data Plug-in’.

If you do not see nimbleData Plugin under ‘Data Source’, please check following :

  1. Check AmiBroker Path : Please check if you have installed NimbleDataPro2 for the same AmiBroker which is started now. To verify, navigate to \Plugins directory of the AmiBroker which should contain ‘NimbledataRT.dll’ file. If required, re-install NimbleDataPro2 by selecting appropriate AmiBroker path during installation.
  2. Check AmiBroker Edition : Please check if you have selected correct AmiBroker Edition (32 bit or 64 bit) at the time of installation. 32bit NimbleDataPro2 will not be visible under 64bit AmiBroker. Similarly, 64bit NimbleDataPro2 will not be visible under 32bit AmiBroker. You can know the exact AmiBroker Version from AmiBroker menu Help>>About as shown below.

If required, re-install NimbleDataPro2 by selecting appropriate AmiBroker path during installation.

  1. Visual Studio Redistributable : If you are using older Operating System then you will need to install appropriate Visual Studio Redistributable. To do this, please :
    1. Close AmiBroker
    2. Navigate to C:\NimbleDataPro2\prerequisites You will find 2 directories here : x86 & x64.
    3. If you are using 32bit AmiBroker, run exe from C:\NimbleDataPro2\prerequisites\x86 directory. This will install the necessary Visual Studio files on your computer. Complete installation normally.
    4. If you are using 64bit AmiBroker, run exe from C:\NimbleDataPro2\prerequisites\x64 directory. This will install the necessary Visual Studio files on your computer. Complete installation normally.
    5. Start AmiBroker and continue with new database creation.

 

  1. Enter 150000 for ‘Number of bars’ and ‘Tick’ or ‘1 Minute’ as the Base time Interval as shown below and click on ‘Intraday Settings’ button.

Choosing ‘Tick’ as Base Time Interval : If you want to see range bars or timeframes smaller than 1 minute, you should choose ‘Tick’ as Base Time Interval.

Choosing ‘1 Minute’ as Base Time Interval : If you do not want to see timeframes smaller than 1 minute, you can choose ‘1 Minute’ as Base Time Interval.

Notes :

  1. Irrespective of whether you choose ‘Tick’ or ‘1 Minute’, the data will be updating tick by tick (1 second).
  2. Irrespective of whether you choose ‘Tick’ or ‘1 Minute’, the data is delivered realtime without any delay.
  3. Since each minute can contain 60 ticks, it may take little more time to backfill symbols with ‘Tick’ as base time interval. For same reason, bandwidth consumption is higher with ‘Tick’ as base time interval.
  4. Under ‘Intraday Settings’, make settings as shown below, click OK.

5. Ensure Database Settings as shown in the main screen below and click OK.
