    Hello bebjo,

    Thanks for your reply.

    Unfortunately the Stockholm stock exchange is not supported so there would be no way for us to retrieve the information from Google. We do have the SFB listed as an exchange and it is listed as the Stockholm stock exchange in our platform, but the SFB is mapped as the Swedish stock exchange.

    I'll be making a note to our development team for SFB exchange to read "Swedish stock exchange" instead of "Stockholm stock exchange".

    I have been testing using various formats for symbol mapping and have only been able to retrieve data for these stocks using NYSE as the exchange. I even attempted using the SFB exchange with no success.

    I will be submitting a feature request to our development team to support the Stockholm stock exchange in a future release of NinjaTrader.

    Please let me know if I may be of any further assistance.

    So if I understand you correct if I look up a stock on google with the symbol "STO:ABB" I cannot chart it in NT8?
    Because I remember it was possible via Yahoo where they were named "ABB.ST". It was just to remove the "."
    There must be some kind of workaround, even if I manually have to entter them stock by stock?
    Trading stocks on NYSE give me a higher comission.
    I want to use NT to run strategies to give me buy and sell signals, I do the trading in another system.

    Hello bebjo,

    Thanks for writing in to our Support team.

    Unfortunately the Stockholm stock exchange is not supported in NinjaTrader so you will not be able to retrieve data for the Skanska b stock.

    However the ABB, STO, and AZN stocks are all traded on the NYSE and I was able to retrieve data for them when I included the NYSE and default as the exchanges and set the symbol mapping for Google to ABB, STO, and AZN respectively.

    Please let me know if I may be of any further assistance.

    When I look up ABB on Google it say STO:ABB
    so I guessed that was correct.

    But when I try AZN (STO:AZN) I get the same chart or same price data?

    They are both on the Stockholm exchange.

    Hello bebjo,
    Can you clarify which exchange these stocks are on. Currently I am finding the Skanska B is on the STO.

    Progress

    Quick update:

    I changed the exchande to "default"
    and the Google symbol to "STO" and master instrument to "ABB".

    And it works, I get a chart.
    But, its not the ABB price curve. Also all other swedish stocks I edit as stated above, they all get the same, wrong price curve. I have the currency right.

    What am I doing wrong?

    So close now...

    Hi!

    So I just downloaded NT8.

    Lifelong question about how to import Swedish stocks. Just read that Yahoo is'nt available and it is not possible to connect to Yahoo via NT8.

    So I look at Google Finance instead.

    I set up my symbol list with no " ", no "." and no "-" and import the to NT8.
    This does'nt work. So I imagine that Google has another symbolmapping.
    Like for instance the Stock "Skanska B" with tickr SKA B, how do I have to format that so that I will be able to get data from Google? I can add that all the symbols imported quite nicely, but none of them work.

    I think we are quite many that desire Swedish stocks, please help!

    Hello Johan,

    Thanks for writing in.

    The difficulty here lies in the fact that a '.' and '-' are included in the instrument's name.

    When you orignally add the instrument, you'll set a 'Master Instrument Name' within the Defintion tab of the instrument editor - in that field, enter the name without the '.' or
    '-' included, ERICBST in this case.

    When configuring a symbol map value in the Misc tab of the instrument editor, enter the full ERIC-B.ST mapping which yahoo would use next to 'Yahoo'.

    Sorry for the confusion.

    When importing, NinjaTrader sets the symbol mapping and the master instrument symbol to the same value. Unfortunately, the '.' and '-' required in this instruments mapping cannot be used in the master instrument filed.

    So, you will need to remove the dots and dashes for the import, then add those settings manually later on.
    Hi,

    I have been trying for a while to configure NT7 using end-of-day data from Yahoo Finance with the Swedish stocks (included in the OMXS30-index) with no success. I simply cannot get charts to work with these stocks, but it works fine with the default included American stocks.

    Can someone describe step-by-step how I can get chart for the following stock (with data from Yahoo) into NT7?
    http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=ERIC-B.ST

    I'll be grateful for any help.

    Regards
    / Johan

    Thanks for the reply, Kyle.

    So the import is for master name only, and I have to add the symbol to each entry manually afterwards? Or did I missundertand you?
