QCollector Expert is a data collection tool for subscribers to the eSignal, QCharts and FutureSource data feed services. QCollector Expert will download market price history data for any ticker symbol supported by your data feed subscription – stocks, futures, forex, etc. – and save the data to files on your own computer. Downloaded data can then be used in other trading programs for technical analysis, charting and scanning, or running and testing trading systems.
