Hello all!

Does anybody ever tried to link data from TOS(volumes, price action) to Excel or some programming language platform for further analyze?

If yes, please help with info how to start in that direction?

Seconding that request

Looks like you didn't have much luck with getting any responses on that front, raxbat. Did you make any headway? I'm trying to find a way to export Zigzag data points in my TOS charts to an excel spreadsheet for analysis and histogram creation. I've had no luck whatsoever finding an answer anywhere on whether this process is even possible from the TOS software. Obviously, I'll have to consult them directly and inquire...

Export TOS to Excel

I've done it.

Go to the Marketwatch tab and set up your symbol and the data you want for it. click on the printer button in the top right corner and select export to Excel.
Then paste it in Excel with ctrl+v or rightclick paste.
DDE for Calc
RTD for Excel
