Hi,

We subscribe to the satellite feed, and use custom market scanning programs to generate focus lists. I am interested in using ProphetX as a charting program, but would like to insert the tickers that are generated by the scanning program directly into the ProphetX tree.

I have not looked at the program to see if it stores ticker symbols in text files, or (if they are so stored) if ProphetX locks the files when it is operating so that they can not be written to.

Will I be able to accomplish this?

Thanks in advance,

Ljoseph

ljoseph,

Thank you for your post. I apologize that we have not responded in a timely manner. Are you looking to insert the tickers as a one time dump, or is this more of a realtime ongoing dump? The symbols are interchangeable from the Satellite to ProphetX and PX supports the ability to create quote lists or copy paste into a quotesheet. The best option would be to download a trial of ProphetX to determine if it will meet your needs. Feel free to sign up for a free trial. http://www.dtn.com/pxmicro/at/trynow.cfm
Again I apologize for the delay in response.

Thank you for your interest

Mike

Hi Mike,

I know it seems like I am being lazy, however hope you will indulge me and answer my questions.

The symbol lists that are output by my program from scanning the satellite feed are dynamically generated. What I was hoping for was that PX stores tickers external to itself in some sort of text format, so my program could update the text file everytime it scans the market and generates a new list. Will I be able to do this?

Similarly, is there an API for PX, so that it could be programatically controlled?

Also, could you tell me if which version of SIC is used by PX? The last time I checked, the satellite was using an SIC version from the 1980s, which resulted in quite a number companies being incorrectly classified.

Your help is greatly appreciated,

Larry

Ljoseph,

I thought I would take a minute to provide some information that may be useful to you as well as other forum visitors regarding this subject:

ProphetX does store the quote list and workbooks in a local file structure on your machine. Thus, it would be possible to build these files yourself, then open them from within ProphetX. From what I gather, you would want to continue scanning from the satellite feed, then when you have a symbol list ready, you build the file with symbols that could then be watched in ProphetX. ProphetX gives you 2 possibilities.

1) Quote Lists. This is a simple file that you can then drag-drop onto a quote sheet, chart, quote board, etc to view the data for each symbol contained in the Quote List.
2) Workbooks. The file format for workbooks is much more complex since it contains formatting, fields definitions, display definitions, etc.

Both files are stored in a XML type file.
EXAMPLE:
<QuoteList Version="1.0">
<Quote Symbol="MSFT" Vendor="DTN" Market="14"/>
<Quote Symbol="ABT" Vendor="DTN" Market="12"/>
<Quote Symbol="AEP" Vendor="DTN" Market="12"/>
</QuoteList>

Depending upon how dynamic the files you create are, it most likely would be easiest to create a Quote List. Then, when your files change, you would drag and drop the Quote List onto the desired display. I have tested this to work without problem (ProphetX doesn't lock the Quote List files so you can modify them in the background, then re-drag them onto a display which will update the symbols).

Regarding your question on SIC. It is my understading we are using the latest SIC codes available. SIC is no longer the current classification method however. Thus, we now also send NAICS codes in the feed.

Let us know if you have any further questions...

Thanks Jay, your response is very helpful.

Are there any tools for programatically controlling ProphetX, like an SDK?

Thanks again,

Larry

Unfortunately, there is no SDK for the ProphetX client workstation.
