Daily Custom Indi From CSV v1 free



Developed this through a forum request.

Currently limited functionality as it was a quick turn around, will only work on the daily timeframe.

Takes as input a CSV file with Dates and numbers (two colums with one row of titles), and the delimiter type (here we are displaying EVZ Daily data).

Depending on how people find it, we would be happy to expand its capabilities. Future pipeline could include:

  • Functionality for more timeframes
  • Full on EVZ pipeline for those NNFX traders out there.
