                                                   Metastock as content type in downloader

It will be great if 'Metastock' can also be added as 'content type' in downloader. Though QS has the capability to work on the external Metastock database, sometimes it is useful to maintain a QS database of the Metastock data for better control in its organisation. Just like how an ASCII downloader can be automated to fetch local data, similarly QS can fetch data from the Metastock files automatically.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
