As well as downloads, could the solution you are researching include facilities for uploads?

I regularly uploads CL Market Replay data which takes me about 2 hours each time. Of course my Internet connection is unusable when uploading so I tend to arrange the uploads when I go out for errands.

Since I've been thinking of starting to upload ES data too, the process may become too tedius, especially given ES contracts are 3x the size of CL's.

My thinking is, some sort of upload manager technology that plugs into the site may greatly allieviate any such process.



EDIT Just come across this, to support the idea: https://tus.io/

The problem is the out-of-date editor vBulletin 3.8 uses. It's all fixed in the new framework site, which is still an on-going project. If there was an easy fix I would implement it, but it's more or less an absolute impossibility to improve the current site to allow better uploads/drag-n-drop or paste etc.

One question, are you uploading market replay data only? I was hoping someone would keep the raw tick data thread alive, it's been going for so many years.

Hi Mike

Not sure what happened - but several strange things I see have happened to the site
1) As a elite member I get pages cluttered with ads - since some time
2) The experience list seems to be out of anything: Members got millions of points over night - eg: fattails 132,150,500 "Points for miscellaneous" and so many other members too that had no input in the last years...
Of course nothing to complain - just a hint.
Awaiting futures.io 4.0 soon.
Thanks for your ongoing support and your great site.

GFIs1

The experience points formula was re-worked. "Miscellaneous" is almost exclusively related to file attachments and Downloads section, so @Fat Tails has contributed a lot of very popular indicators and therefore scores a tremendous amount of experience points because of it.

There is a time decay factor in the ranking. Every day a user is inactive, their ranking diminishes quite a bit.

I've never used the gomi recorder stuff, so I'm not familiar with how it works.

But if the tick data in there is the same "historical tick data" that NT8 has, then you can derive tick data from Market Replay data, so you don't need the former as an extra data source.

Having not used NT for a while, I am not sure. I think it doesn't include the inside bid/ask that the QCollector tools do with IQFeed source, but not sure.

Is there a Market Replay to CSV converter? I thought the file format was proprietary.

That thread is better to ask

You can use a relatively simple script to export the data in text format. I have tried it to export historical minute data and it works. Modifying that so that instead of historical data it writes tick data should be a small leap.

Given Market Replay contains bid/ask data I think that too can be exported in a similar fashion.

Then lets hope someone in that thread will close the gap and continuing posting the tick data. Can someone reading this thread help out and see/ask around? So that the data @xplorer is posting doesn't go wasted for tick data use.

Not sure if this is by design but when I go to Elite Circle>Forum Tools>Mark This Forum Read it also clears out all the sub-forum elite journals.

Yes, because they are sub-forums. Sorry, it's a feature not bug lol Nothing I can do on that one.

There is currently a problem with caching site-wide (only effects guest users, not logged in users). Investigating. It just means slower site, no content problems. But needs to be fixed....

OK, already found & fixed the problem. One too many | pipe characters in a long if statement, I last made that change yesterday. Glad I saw and solved it today so it didn't last longer. We get crawled more than 50k pages per day so performance and caching are an important part of that.
