For users who work with large quantities of data at a time or create numerous time series files, TickWrite® 7 is the preferred choice. Available for Windows or Linux, TickWrite® 7 is installed on your local or Cloud infrastructure along with its source, or Deep History, files. Deep History files are zipped ASCII files each containing a single symbol for a single day (one stock, one futures contract month, one component of an option chain, etc.).
All versions of TickWrite® read these files, but with TickWrite® 7, the files are stored in your local or Cloud infrastructure. This allows for faster creation of custom-formatted time series files, but requires additional storage for the Deep History data compared to the other versions of TickWrite®.
TickWrite® 7 also has a Scheduler function that allows it to run as a service in the background and automatically download updates (subscription required). This makes TickWrite® 7 a popular choice for clients who subscribe to our Daily Update service.
