I'm trying to plot my 401k performance against DJI and SPY.
I'm using what I think is the built in foreign function to do this but all that's plotting is the 401k. I'm sure I'm doing something simple stupid but what?
Doh! Yes, I had it in my updater but not in the watchlist I am using. Thanks for assisting Mr. obvious. I told you I was a newbie.
This brings up another issue I'm having. I use Interactive Brokers' updater and I also have Amiquote. I don't know how the two database updaters interact. How do I tell which one is updating a particular symbol. Am I making a mistake by using both?
I am sorry but I learned on my own mistakes so many times that the most obvious things are hardest to catch. So I triple check obvious things.
As to your second question it is covered in the manual http://www.amibroker.com/guide/h_rtsource.html , scroll down to "Things you should NOT do, or you should do very carefully" section for extensive discussion on how it works and what to look for.
