Upgrade / download instructions

This release of ELWAVE 7.7 contains the following new features and enhancements:

  • Added support for Interactive Brokers historical and real-time data (req. UDS module)
    With the introduction of version 7.7d you can now make direct use of historical and realtime data from your Interactive Brokers account. This functionality requires the UDS ServerFeed module.

  • Hardware lock not found error fixed
    The ELWAVE 7.7b update fixes a problem with the hardware lock drivers that causes ELWAVE to display a 'Hardware lock not found' error message even though the hardware lock is plugged in. The problem is caused by the hardware lock driver (sentinel.sys) which was signed by the hardware lock manufacturer with a digital signature (certifcate) that expired on March 13, 2006. Because the signature did also not have a timestamp, this rendered the driver useless on Windows NT and XP systems. This affects both parallel port and USB hardware locks.

    This new release will force the incorrect driver file to be overwritten with a version.

  • Optimized time frame analysis

    You can now directly tell ELWAVE what time frame to analyze. Just click and hold the 'Go Analyze' button for more than one second and select the time frame from the drowdown list that you would like to analyze. This is a major new feature which makes it possible to adjust the analysis results from ELWAVE such that they are always directly relevant to the way and time frame that you trade.

    It is possible that there is not sufficient historical data (loaded) to analyze the currently active/selected (larger) time frame, resulting in an error message. When this happens, you can either: 1) Load more data, if available, or 2) analyze a smaller time frame.

    It is also possible that the data that is loaded does not provide sufficient detail for the currently selected (smaller) time frame. In this case either 1) Load more detailed data (e.g. 1 min instead of 5 min), or 2) analyze a higher time frame

    The Batch Processor also supports the new optimized time frame analysis. There is a seperate setting for the time frame to analyse in the Batch Processor.

  • Added support for IQFeed®

    You can now open charts from IQFeed® directly by simply entering the symbol or using the Search button in the Select Symbol window. To load a chart from IQFeed®, select 'Chart|New Chart...' and select IQFeed in the Provider or Files of Type field. Your charts will be updated in real time automatically.
    This feature required the UDS ServerFeed module.

  • Added support for Yahoo end-of-day downloadable historical data ASCII format (table.csv)

    To import Yahoo historical data, select 'Chart|New chart?'. Choose ASCII in the 'Provider' or "Files of Type' field. Select 'DD-MM-YYYY' as the Date Format. Make sure that 'Most recent date in first line is checked. This feature does not require the UDS ServerFeed module.
