I am using the default daily and historical downlaoders and repeatedly come accross ticker symbols that are not in my database. Example, at has symbols COMP,
UCL, TLS and it says (NASD exchange) however, those symbols do not appear whenever I run my downloads. Can anyone help me ?

Hi Colin

My 2 cents

I guess If your not paying for data, you will need to manage your symbols. I use the ASX and every week new companies are added, companies are removed (delisted, takeovers etc) and companies change names and or Sector/Industries. Meaning once a week, I need to use the relevant web source (mainly the ASX website) to update my database.

Unless people do this a different way?? For NASD symbols, go to the NASDAQ site, then screener and you can download the entire current symbol set in a CSV which includes Sector/Industry/Country, use a spread sheet to format this for importing to Quantshare, then find the appropriate web sources for deleted/changed/new companies and manage your symbols this way.

Just curious, a question to anyone who pays for data, how do you get notified of new additions/name changes/deletions etc?

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.
