Finam static provider for Wealth-Lab Developer 6 customers updated to version 2010.09.

Highlights of the new version:

* Implemented intraday historical data download up to 1-minute (worked around Finam's artificial limitation)
* Fixed Finam's bizarre EOD Forex data, merging Saturday and Sunday sessions with Friday and Monday bars
* Last existing bar in the data will now always be considered partial and overwritten on each update

Finam static provider version 2010.10 for Wealth-Lab Developer 6 customers released.

Besides adding a new market group at the data feed (update to v2010.10 and perform "Refresh Classification" to reflect changes), there's one important bug fix. It's recommended to update to the actual version to avoid getting the wrong data for non-unique symbols such as LKOH, SBER etc. which could be a stock and a futures contract at the same time.

Important note:

Despite the fix, if any DataSet contains a non-unique symbol (e.g. GAZP, RTKM, LKOH...), their data may get mixed up and broken in two cases:

1. Do not perform "Update All Data" with Finam provider enabled. Instead, use "Update DataSet" to update them one by one.
2. Do not create DataSets with non-unique symbols from different groups.

Finam static provider version 2010.11 for Wealth-Lab Developer 6 customers released.

In this release, all known issues affecting non-unique symbols have been fixed. Now you can return to update the Finam data in a usual manner.

This version's highlight is the [b]Quotes pane in the Data Manager, allowing to take a quick peek at the market dynamics of a selected Finam DataSet. Visit the Wiki for a screenshot of this convenient feature:

Not only RTS ticker. I think, every ticker, where a lot of data (1-minute period).
I think, it shall be useful to do a custom timeout time.

Intraday historical requests internally are being split into smaller chunks to work around Finam's data loading depth limitations. Doing so also helps their server - a known slowpoke when it comes to downloading complete 1-min history for a symbol. I think that either you were hitting the server at some unlucky time or (less likely) your connection bandwidth could've been the bottleneck.

Suggestions to try right now:

* Download high frequency data from Finam at a different time to avoid potential server load problem
* Use a different internet connection (different provider, higher speed) and stop any background downloads/p2p you may have
* Repeat updating the DataSet until the provider completes grabbing the "missing" symbols' data (1-2 times)

Currently, requests time out after 10 seconds of inactivity which has been reasonable so far. For a future build, I may consider a custom timeout option or will just bump up the value (this is far more likely).

Finam provider for Wealth-Lab Developer 6 customers has been updated to version 2011.01 on 01/12/2010.

Among the highlights of this important release are: Streaming data provider, support for WL 6.1 features, and bug fixes. It's strongly suggested to update to Wealth-Lab Developer 6.1 and Finam 2011.01.

* The provider now supports Streaming data based on snapshot quotes (pulled every 10 seconds).
* Supports GetSessionOpen (in WL 6.1 and above) - a trading session's open price is returned
* Attempts fix timeout problems (re: message from Magnum dated 1/5/2011 3:55 PM), potential network errors and other issues

Re-updating add no more bars.
For experiment, i deleted dataset and created it again and updated it. It was updated 232411 bars again (may be it's a limit of Finam's site functional?!). I think, the right way is to update it beginning on time of last bar, but not beginniong of all times.

Data not ends on this date. I've just downloaded today's 1-minutes data for this ticker from this page http://www.finam.ru/analysis/export/default.asp. But if i choose large range, for example, 01.01.2000 - 01.01.2011 it returns a file with message that range is too large.

As a decision i see a possibility to set update range manually. So, user can manually download all data by parts.

Indeed. What striked me is that only Windows XP is affected: you're using XP, and the issue could be reproduced on an XP machine. You'll be surprised to know that it never happened with Windows 7 or Vista boxes I tried the provider with.

Debugging showed that after successfully receiving those 56 Mb of data, on Windows XP an internal exception is thrown by .NET itself while internally processing the data. It's worth noting that the data per se weren't the cuprit - just their size after reaching some threshold. Chances are I hit some internal issue of .NET 2.0. So here goes a new build with a workaround.

Version 2011.01.2 change summary:

* Fixed: Windows XP issue (very large downloaded data not saved to disk)

Hello,
I have created a portfolio of 5 russian stocks with a chart for each, chose Finam streaming provider in the "Settings", enabled "Stream" for each stock and set current workspace as default.

Unfortunately upon a startup a get an error with a description "Stopped Working" and have two options to choose: Check online for a solution or close the program.

That repeats after several start-ups of the program.

I also have noticed, that if i disable Finam as a streaming adapter everything works fine.

Is there a way how to resolve this problem?
Thanks.

#21
Hello,

To resolve something, first we need to reproduce that something and then understand what may have caused it. Since you're the first to report, let's troubleshoot it step by step:

1. Under Preferences > Streaming Data, clear any Streaming Ticker Symbols you may have. (By default, the box is filled with 3 indices missing in the Finam data feed.) Did this help?

2. What regional settings do you have? Have you adjusted them in any way in Regional Options (Windows Control Panel)? If yes, close Wealth-Lab, make sure your decimal and currency separators are set to "." (and not ","), restart Wealth-Lab. If this change made WL crash, fix it as instructed here: Wealth-Lab crashes on start after changing regional settings and restart WL. Did it help?

3.1. Which exact symbols, from which Finam market group, which BarScale and BarInterval?
3.2. Have you updated the DataSet before turning Streaming on? Is 'Update Data on Demand' enabled or disabled?

Hello,
Should Finam Streaming Data provider automatically refresh the chart after the end of each period?

I have created a dataset with RTS-6.11(RIM1) and chose a 1 minute time-frame for that symbol.

The quotes are updating every 10 seconds as supposed to be, but the chart didn't updates automatically, so I see only 1 real-time bar, which updates continiously and draw 1 big bar.
For example, the last bar time is 14:12:00 (current time is 14:22). If i press F5 on the chart the bars with time 14:13, 14:14, 14:15 etc. will be visible on the chart.

Is there a way to reload chart automatically every minute?

Thanks in advance

#25
Hello,

That's unexpected. Of course the new bars should be added each minute. Currently it's not clear what's causing the issue but thanks for the heads-up.

#26
Eugene, thanks for your reply.
Did you the get the same behavior of Finam Data adapter on your computer?
profile picture

Eugene

#27
Yes. I tracked down the bug to an internal optimization of data requests made in 2011.01.1 which negatively affects any Streaming charts from 1- to 60-minute bar scales. Sorry about that.

I'll fix it in the upcoming release 2011.04.

#28
Thanks, I will wait impatiently.

#29
One thing worth noting is that since Finam does not provide streaming data natively and this has to be emulated, the data quality isn't guaranteed: bad ticks and differences between streaming vs. static bars are possible (that's the price to pay for this goodness).

Finam static provider has been updated to version 2011.04 (for Wealth-Lab Developer 6 customers only).

The only fix is that a malfunctioning optimization from v2011.01.1 has been reverted (thanks bishop).

* Fixed: Streaming bug: partial bar not closed on intraday bar scales due to an optimization in 2011.01.1 (reverted)

Eugene, I've found a critical issue with accuracy of day data obtained with Finam provider.

For example, when loading data for SBER03 ticker (Sberbank) I cannot see the bar for 05 March 2011. Seems that day's bar is silently lost.

Please check this.
profile picture

Eugene

#32
Thank you for the heads-up. Let me explain what goes on here.

Finam covers a lot of markets including Forex but their data feed runs in GMT+3(4) time zone, so when Forex closes on Friday 5 pm EST, a fake Saturday bar is created. The provider has special logic to merge these (Daily) bars with previous session's bar to arrive at a proper OHLC.

March 05, 2011 fell on a Saturday, and that was a normal trading session for your stock & futures exchanges. Unfortunately, the provider is mistakenly treating your Equity symbol as a Forex one, merging Saturday's OHLC with Friday's bar.

In an upcoming build, I'll make sure that this logic is turned on for Forex symbols exclusively and disabled for any other market group. When it's out, it will be recommended to refresh all Daily data downloaded from Finam to make the missing Saturday bar reappear.

Hello Eugene.
I have noticed a new problem.
I use Finam adapter for generating 5-minutes intraday charts.
I tried different symbols and found that the new version of adapter generates new bar prior to the end of the period.
For example, the new bar must become visible to WL at the 1st second of a new period, i.e. at 16:10:01, 16:15:01, 16:20:01 etc.
But with that version of adapter the new bar becomes visible to WL either at 16:09:10 or 16:09:20 (16:14:10, 16:19:10....), actually before the current 5 minute period ends.

Is it a bug? If so, can you, please, fix it?

Thanks

Hello! I have problems trying to download history for SandP-500* ticker using Finam extension. It is just 2 months of hourly timeframe. The error is "Path contains illegal symbols", so it seems maybe the symbol "*" at the end is the problem, or I don't know. Help me please to solve this.
profile picture

kas

#42
Yes any ticker with "*" at the end has the same mistake while loading - "Path contains illegal symbols". Any other tickers loads perfectly. So it may be a bug.
profile picture

Eugene

#43
Yes, special character '*' is the problem. Any Finam symbol with an invalid character like '*' that can't be created on a Windows file system, can not be handled by the provider. It's usually not an issue for other data providers but Finam, with its own symbology allowing for duplicate symbols, is different.

I'm long aware of this bug but do not intend to fix it because it's not severe and has zero importance (IMHO). For U.S. symbols, you're better off subscribing to a dedicated quote feed like IQFeed. The handful U.S. symbols Finam provides is not the strongest part of their data feed. Its highlight, for sure, is the ability to have a static/streaming intraday/daily data solution for thousands of Russian symbols for the price one can't beat (free as in beer). Fortunately, these tickers don't seem to contain invalid characters at all.

Resume: due to the provider's complicated internals, fixing the low-importance issue ain't worth the trouble.

Eugene

#44
P.S. Thank you for the heads-up. A note has been just added to the provider's online help page: Known issues.

#45
I think there might be another issue with this provider. When I create a dataset of Finam weekly data, they are scaled as daily. The same thing, when I create a Finam montly scaled dataset, I have a daily data in there. Although the original Finam datafeed allows to save weekly and monthly timeframes.

So my strategy, trying to look for weekly or monthly timeframes shows a mistake, because there are only daily.
profile picture

Eugene

#46
You're right, thanks. That's going to be an easy fix.

While waiting for the fix you can load Weekly/Monthly by applying the following workaround:

1. Create a Weekly/Monthly DataSet
2. Close WL6
3. Find the folder where DataSets are stored, on Win7 it's usually:

C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Fidelity Investments\WealthLabDev\1.0.0.0\Data\DataSets

4. Using Notepad or your favorite text/XML editor, find the XML file of your Finam DataSet and edit this line:
QUOTE:
<Scale>Daily</Scale>

this way:
QUOTE:
<Scale>Weekly</Scale>

or this way, depending on desired bar scale:
QUOTE:
<Scale>Monthly</Scale>

5. Start WL6 again.

Finam static/streaming data provider has been updated to 2012.03.

Summary of changes:

* Change: Finam made changes to Classification
* Change: updated Finam Classification groups
* New: suggested DataSet name

Finam has made some structural changes to their Classification Groups. At the same time, the data vendor seems to be inclined towards supporting their old classification groups. So while upgrading to 2012.03 is not mandatory and existing users can continue, I believe that the old classifcation might not get updated with new symbols and groups any more.

Note: after upgrading the provider, you will be prompted to refresh Classification upon creating a new DataSet.

Finam static/streaming data provider has been updated to 2012.05.

As Finam has made a number of changes to their symbol classification, this update is mandatory if you like to keep the Classification groups feature working. In previous versions it may be broken.

* Change: classification groups were hardcoded before, from now on they are retrieved automatically as they appear in Finam classification
* Change: http user-agent string updated (internal)
* Change: possible to install in Wealth-Lab 6.3+
* Fix: creating Finam DataSets not possible after reloading Classification (Finam made a breaking change to Classification groups)
* Fix: uninstalling Finam provider will preserve Market Manager library

I have a problem with tick data through this provider now - can't download no one bar. Is this connected with the same Finam data server changes?
profile picture

Eugene

#52
No. It's because being a popular free source of data, Finam imposes serious limitations, trying to avoid high server load issues:

1. tick data requests by download managers and custom software are detected/prevented
2. there's a time window during the day when tick-based data can be requested only for a single day
3. multiple requests within some short period are throttled
4.1. certain market groups do not have tick data, and
4.2. for some individual emitents, tick data may not be available.

I've withdrawn multi-threaded data updates, falling back to single-threaded requests for the same reason: it simply was not possible to overcome all Finam's limitations, especially the throtlling.

Having said the above, I don't feel it's reasonable to continue offering Ticks in the provider. The option will be removed starting from the upcoming build 2012.11.

Finam static/streaming data provider has been updated to 2012.11.

If use Russian name symbol, more ticker contains "space" example Gazprom Ao, this not correct work in Market Manager

I change in xml files and *.wl delete all spaces, not good idea use Russian name of tickers

May be change on exchange tickers, this international standard in trading platform ?

profile picture

Eugene

#59
Those international standard tickers like "RU000A0JPM63" (a random ticker for example) look way less user-friendly than "Gazprom ao", aren't they? By the way, Finam has duplicate tickers (e.g. several GAZP which belong to different markets) and this makes lookup less reliable. Not to mention that what you've proposed is impossible because we can not afford a breaking change to all existing DataSets of a popular data provider.

The Finam provider has no problem with the symbol names separated with space, so it's a MM defect. The correct way to approach this problem would naturally be to fix the Market Manager to honor symbol names with spaces (e.g. by wrapping them in quotes). Thanks for the heads-up, I added a note about this limitation to the Wiki and a bug to the product backlog.

Eugene try quick change ticker on chart GAZP or GMKNorNik :)

How I understand WLD converts finam id ticker 11752 to other name GAZP or Gazprom ao

You will may have problem in future, in other WLD module or user code, with names contains space :)

For me its not critical, I change for normal use.

Ps. Option's in IQFeed have large name too, but universal symbol ticker name, need that not have problem in most software who use it.

May be change space in WLD on ( _ ) and use autoconversion ? Idea for you :)
