As directed by Eugene, starting new topic on Wealth Data since search came up empty.
Don't know how to get this implemented into my WL application.
Don't know how to capture free source data from WLD web site for existing WL user.
Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

You'll be up and running in minutes:

1. Please sign up at https://wealth-data.com (required)

2. Install the provider
https://www.wealth-lab.com/Extensions/Details/59

3. Restart WLP

4. Enter your new account's credentials on the Wealth-Data tab in the Data Manager, and you're ready to go.

What am I doing wrong ?


X: Access denied: This symbol is not part of your subscription
GOOG: Access denied: This symbol is not part of your subscription.
NAV: Access denied: This symbol is not part of your subscription.


Most symbols are working, surprisingly, ticker TWTR is not found.

Please see my post #27 in this thread where I already answered your question last year:

Hi. I am a new Wealth Lab Pro user. I am also a Fidelity customer so I downloaded Wealth Lab Pro V6.9 from the Fidelity link. I am interested in testing a strategy on Futures data and would like to use the Wealth Data. I have signed up as a user at Wealth Data.

Is the free Wealth Data feed not available to users who download Wealth Lab via Fidelity?

Hi, the Wealth-Data feed is available to Fidelity customers. Please note that before they're allowed to install the extension we have to verify their entitlement at Fidelity (see my reply to your open ticket).

Hello,

I am always getting with Wealth Data this message for the stock "CON.DE".
Error processing symbol CON.DE File Stream does not open any Win32 devices. For example, disk partitions or tape drives. "\\. \" must not be used in the path.

And for "MUV2.DE": Access denied: This symbol is not part of your subscription! Because should be free!

The rest is fine! Has someone the same problem or an idea?

Thanks for your bug report, Damir.

So you cannot chart the symbol or use it in backtests, right?

CON (PRN, AUX, NUL, COM1 etc.) are reserved keywords in Windows. Creating such file names should be prohibited. But "CON.DE" translates to "CON%2EDE.WL" file by WL which is safe. Could you enable hidden file visibility and tell me what's there:

c:\Users\Windows username\AppData\Roaming\Fidelity Investments\WealthLabDev\1.0.0.0\Data\ZZWealthDataStaticProvider\Daily\C\

MUV2.DE has long been part of DAX so it definitely must be accessible to any subsciber of W-D. Very odd. Will look into it.

Re: CON.DE. The file name on your screenshot is correct so there shouldn't be an issue. I cannot reproduce the error message. Neither on chart nor in backtest.

Fixed. Thanks.

We discovered a similar error for a number of MDAX symbols, will get fixed shortly.
