Free NSE Real time data feed for Amibroker, Full version

I have now found a small piece of software (about 1.5 MB) that can get you real time data feed for nse stocks to Amibroker. This software (Data Feeder) is freeware and you can use it as long as you wish, you can have stocks list up-to 100 stocks ( you can add more but slows down data feed). So now you don’t have to pay any subscription charges to other data provider, I have been using this software for last 1 week and did not see any issue with the data.

Moreover I can see Sensex, Nifty and USD-INR currency pair price. This small app has feature of back filling data of 1 day, 5 days and EOD data as well,  You can download this software from below link.


Guide to setup NSE free real time data on Amibroker:

  1. Download data feeder from above line.
  2. Install using setup.exe, at this step you ate done with the installation.
  3. Now let us setup database in Amibroker, Run/open Amibroker.
  4. Go to File menu > New > Database
  5. Type the name of data base, select base time interval as: 1 Minute and click Create.
  6. Under number of bars enter: 10000
  7. Click on Intraday setting.
  8. Select filtering as Show day session only.
  9. In trading hours, for day Session enter start as 09:15 and end as 15:30, Click on OK.
  10. Now you have successfully configured real time database for NSE.
  11. Now run Data Feeder from desktop for first time. Here you will need to create a list of stocks that you need under Amibroker real time data feed.
  12. Once you are done with adding stocks, press the red button named “Amibroker is not connected click here to connect” once you click this button it will become green.
  13. Now click on “ADD STOCKS” button to add stocks to your Amibroker watch list.
  14. Lets perform some Back-fill, click on “Backfill-1M Data” to get 1 day intraday data of selected stocks.
  15. Select chart refresh rate to “5 Seconds“. Now we are ready to hit that START button. Now real time data should be loading perfectly.

      Hi Nitin, I did not find any free real time f&o data provider for nse under amibroker. However there is free software which can get you free nse cash data in realtime for amibroker.

    • nitin says

      i needs your help sir i am unable to get the chart of most of the scripts that i have added
      the error msg what i get is ” to plot any chart at leat 3 data bars are needed but there are only 0 barn in ………(name of the share)”

      • Guru says

        Hi Nitin,

        Even I faced the same problem. Then I figured out the chart frequency option is set to daily. You need to change it to intraday. It should be available on right click or through top menu.

  1. sekhar chakrabarti says

    Today I tried real time data feeder software 2.9.0 with amibroker 5.3, now iam facing a tipical problem that is I added some new stock like united spirits, lovable, jublfood, tatasteel, jsw steel, etc. but those are not creating any chart. The stocks already added is running fine with tick chat. Please help me to solve the problem. Thanks and regards.

    • says

      Sir, you need to do 5 minutes back fill for selected stocks in data feeder, once back fill is completed then charts will be displayed and make sure you are on 15 minutes time frame. Sekhar tell me if it is working fine now.

      • Praveen S says

        Hello Bhaveek,
        I have recently upgraded to Amibroker 5.6. I find that whenever I try the back fill options it crashes datafeeder!! I tried reinstalling and still it doesnt work… it always crashes. And without doing the backfeed if I try the live feed, nothing happens! How can one resolve this?

  2. sekhar chakrabarti says

    At first I added those stock by clicking add new stocks button. Then I syncronized then I selected 1 min backfill then I selected 5 sec chart refresh and then I click start button but no effect.
    What I have to do?

    • says

      Did you try add stocks button which is just below the green button. So select stocks and press add stocks, it will appear in amibroker, then select do back fill data will be shown immediatly. After this you can press start button to get real time data feeds.

  3. sekhar chakrabarti says

    Yes sir i have tried it by clicking add stock button just up to the synchronize button but no effect. I am sending a screen shot. Please advise me what to do. Regards.

    • says

      Sir, I have gone through your attachment, as I see the scrips having extension as .NS are not created by of live data feeder, they might have been created by some other application. One thing you can do is restart the amibroker and data feeder then do the procedure as stated in previous comments. It should be resolved by now.

  4. sekhar chakrabarti says

    Yes those extension(.ns) given by the web site In order to validate yahoo nse code it is from there. Personally I did not give the extension. I can not under stand what is wrong to me. As per your advise I have restarted data fedd and amibroker but no change is there.

      • Kiran says

        Bhaveek, did you had a chance to solve the issue faced by sekhar? coz i am also facing similar issues. I couldnt update the realtime data feed of amibroker. it updates everytime i clik on backfill 1min data but when i set it to a specific interval it doesnt gets updated.

  5. Umesh says

    Thanks Bhaveek for your suggestion to visit this post.

    I downloaded this DataFeeder but initially it failed to load after installation and says:
    “SORRY!!! There is NO response from license server. So this software will work now in TRIAL MODE
    Sorry for inconvenience caused to you”

    Somehow I succeeded in loading and connecting it to Amibroker. But I failed to load more than 2 scrips and backfill as it says it is a trial version.
    Any suggestion for this.

    One thing, can I backfill by using any other IEOD database, as one provided by you

    Thanks once again for your help.

    • says

      Umesh, just try restarting datafeeder application, there should be no issue in add scrips of your choice. I would suggest you to create new database for real time data, just follow above steps.

      We can backfill using IEOD database as amibroker cant export database in text file format. I think there should be AFL code for doing this. :)

  6. Umesh says

    Restarting datafeeder application does not make any difference. I can add only 2 scrips of my choice and not more. I have created a new database in Amibroker for datafeeder and it downloaded data for 8.6.12 only and not for any previous dates.

    The application is a “TRIAL VERSION” one, as mentioned on the top line of the application and not FULL VERSION. And because of Trial Version it is not backfilling.

    As for backfill, I mean, to backfill manually with IEOD database from other sources, like the one provided by you.

    I will try to send you snapshots on your email address for your reference.


  7. Umesh Agrawal says

    Dear Bhaveek, Please find attached pdf file, of 2 snaps of DataFeeder.
    Please suggest for a solution.

    Further I am interested in getting updates by SMS please include my mobile number 9210XXXXXX for this service.


    • says

      Hi Umesh, I have gone though the snapshots. I would suggest you to see if your firewall or antivirus is not blocking datafeeder from accessing internet. Have you tried restarting your computer after installation of datafeeder.

      Datafeeder is working fine on my system. see below screen shot.

      Datafeeder screenshot

  8. Umesh says

    Thanks Bhaveek for your efforts.

    I do not think, it due to antivirus or firewall, as in that very case I would have got a popup and secondly in that case I should not get this trial version run on my system, as well.

    However I will reload DataFeeder and do as suggested by you later in the evening OR I will try to load DataFeeder in the laptop of a friend of mine, who is coming in the evening.

    Further, is there any possibility that stocklive has reverted back to trial version again. As I was facing this problem since last some days. I sent them an email to this effect, which still remains unreplied.

    Will post you late in the evening or tomorrow, for the actions that I will take.


  9. Umesh says

    Hi Bhaveek

    I uninstalled DataFeeder and reinstalled it as said by you, by disabling AVG Antivirus and Zone Alaram Firewall but to no avail. It was same, the TRIAL installation.My system is P4 2.4 GHz, Windows XP SP2, 32 bit, 1.5GB RAM, .net framework 3.5 SP1

    However, when installed in the laptop (Window 7, 64 bit) it installed with complete version with Antivirus and Firewall enabled.

    I do not understand why the same icon working in two different ways in 2 different systems.

    Do you have any solution.

    One thing I may add, that previously as well as now, on double clicking the icon of DataFeeder, with internet connection on, only blue screen of DataFeeder appears but DF does not load. However when internet is off DF loads with trial version. Can you make something out of it.

    With thanks

    • says

      Umesh, Keep your internet on, When you double click on datafeeder icon, just patiently wait for blue screen to go, as datafeeder starts after that blue screen. It will start in fully functional mode instead of trial. Let me know if it works.

      Bhaveek Patel

      • Umesh says

        Hi Bhaveek, it does not work. On double clicking the icon only initial blue screen of DF appears which disappears within few seconds and nothing loads afterwards.

        With thanks

        • says

          Hi Pankaj, you will need to connect it to amibroker first. To connect to amibroker, first start amibroker then open datafeeder now, just click on that red button available on datafeeder. That button will become green and message will be shown the amibroker is connected.
          Let us know if you need any help.

    • siddharth vora says

      i am also having the same problem and i have fully functionally data feeder but still not get all scrpits data now what to do???

  10. raj says

    I have been using the data feeder as mentioned, its fully functional and working fine, but the data is Not real time, it is delayed by 15 minutes, only nifty is real time. I have also tried by loggin in to during market hours as mentioned but it doesn’t help.
    Software is good to download IEOD data and backfill.

  11. Ravi Kumar says

    Hi Bhaveek,
    I installed Datafeeder, the realtime updates are happening but its creating 5 second candle even though i have created database for 1 minute. Please help.

  12. kunal says

    please tell me in this data feeder nifty index chart is working or not and how many period of data is shows in ieod.

  13. kunal says

    please tell me that if i go with the hourly chart then the all chart will in hourly or only five days graph is shows hourly and all other will show day base.

  14. santosh says

    Dear Bhaveek..
    i have installed and using it…it is good software..

    But it seems some problem with the data real time backfill data.

    i have cross check the real time data to backfill (by using software you mention above) with my trading terminal software, i found some mismatch in real time data.

    • says

      Hi, Santosh, for stocks there is 15 minutes delay, but for index such as nifty and banknifty its real time data (live). If you are positional trader then this delay is ok. But if you are intraday trader, you need to look for paid data providers.

  15. kunal says

    sir i have the data but how to link this with the dadafeeder and in dadafeeder it’s showing first 15min dada base so the chart is showing much long candle so how it can handle.

  16. raj says

    Dear Friends,
    You can get Real-time data of for free with datafeeder even for stocks, it is Not delayed. You have to do the settings exactly as mentioned in the pdf, please go through it and follow the steps and you will get absolutely Real time data for stocks, enjoy happy trading :)

  17. keval patel says

    Dear Sir,
    i have already installed,done all settings also but problem is only in live rates….just u match live rates of any scripts with Odin and our this data feeder….getting wrong rates totally.


      • sudhin says

        Can any one can figure it out after logging into yahoo how one can get live data for cash segment also, otherwise also it is free w/o ami, so hope someone will take this forward.

  18. Andy says

    Hi Bhaveek,
    First of all I would like to thank you for your steps. Unfortunately, I am extremely new to Amibroker, I have been using metatrader all these days but came across your post which gives free NSE stock data, hence got interested.
    As an absolute novice, forgive me for my question. You said in step 5. Type the name of database.
    When I reached that place I saw this default to
    C:\Program Files (x86)\AmiBroker\MyNewData

    Unfortunately there is no folder like this.

    I wanted to ask you whether there is a specific database route I need to create or is there something I am missing?

    Thank you for your time.

    • says

      Hi Andy, You are going right. In C:\Program Files (x86)\AmiBroker\MyNewData path, your database name is MyNewData, Just type a new name for our purpose. It will be created only when you hit create button. Let me know if any problem persists.

  19. sudhin says

    Is anyone here using any tablet for trading, sorry for deviation for the main topic, kindly update.

    • says

      Hi Sudhin,
      I am using my Samsung galaxy tab 2 for managing my trades on move, but only for Forex accounts that we manage. I am not sure about brokers in India providing such applications.

    please guide me to solve the issue

  22. Md. Rehman says

    Hi Bhaveek,

    First let me thank you for the detailed step by step explanation and good work for sharing this.

    I have been using this successfully for last 2 months, since yesterday I have been seeing wrong data in Amibroker, such as same high or same low for continous 10-15 bars each bar, For Eg: For today Bharti is showing day high of 312.45 as of 11:20AM on18th Dec 2012, which is not correct and same for other stocks as well. Wondering if it is only me who is facing this problem, and could it be issue with Stock Live DF or Amibroker. Kindly help me.

    I am have uploaded couple of screenshots for IDEA and BHARTI

    Thank you in Advance.
