How to Use Techsignal Z with Metastock Data

If you have a Metastock database, you can instruct Techsignal Z to read data from your Metastock folders. If you don't have one, go here and download one (Available data: Commodities, Major Currencies, Indices, Money Market, LME Metals, U.S. stocks, Japan, Germany, Poland, Hungary, Macro-economy).

Techsignal Z supports the different formats of Metastock files. It also supports both end-of-day and intraday data.


- In the main menu, select "Download" then "External Database"
- Check "Metastock database" then click on "Settings"
- Click on "Folder" and add as many Metastock folders as you want. QuantShare can read Master, EMaster and XMaster files.
- When you finish adding folders, click on "OK" to save result
- Configure the external database in the "External Database Settings" form. You can for example instruct QuantShare to add Metastock symbols to your Techsignal Z symbols list.
- Click on "OK" twice

Now each time you open a chart, run a simulation or perform an analysis, Techsignal Z will read quotes from your Metastock database instead of Techsignal Z database.

NB: In order to recognize which symbols (stocks, ETFs, futures...) were added from Metastock folders, Techsignal Z trading software creates a new index called "Metastock" and associates all new symbols to that index. Later you can modify or remove these symbols very easily.
