Stock scanner, can now export into QuoteTracker...
« on: April 28, 2010, 11:18:45 AM »
The OzSuper.com site now will format the Extreme Stock report into QuoteTracker format so it can be just copied and pasted into the QuoteTracker master file: C:\Program Files\QuoteTracker\port.xml

Further instructions will follow, so for now, just the basics:

QuoteTracker is a great free windows based stock monitoring program. It can be downloaded from http://www.quotetracker.com/


  • Within QuoteTracker, Create a new portfolio, set it's refresh time: I use 900 seconds. Easiest if you add one stock code. This will more clearly show the format required.
  • Quit the QuoteTracker program
  • Generate the Extreme report, at: http://www.ozsuper.com/ax_power/ax_extremform.php This can also be selected from the [ POWER ] button on top of all pages. Use whatever reporting parameters you wish.
  • Copy the EXPORT field from after the report, at: ozsuper.com/ax_power/ax_extrem.php#Export
  • Edit the port.xml file in a good text editor. Best to take a copy of it first for backup.
  • Close the file in the editor. Assuming the editor locks the file (not all do).
  • The export file is a series of <item> .... </item> stock definitions, Paste it in, replacing the added in stock code from above.
  • Start QuoteTracker again, allow the new portfolio to refresh prices. This may take a few minutes depending on the number of stocks exported.
  • good to go... you can now monitor the reported stocks with real time prices.
