Hi,

I am trying to download some currency data using the BBFree data provider. I am using the ticker info provided for the open Symbology (http://bsym.bloomberg.com/sym/) but so far I have been unable to download anything.

For example for EURUSD, I had tried EUY:CME, EURUSD, EUR-USD, and other possible tickers, but still no data.

What i receive is:

QUOTE:

Updating Provider BBFree Static ...
Updating daily data...
Up-to-date symbols: 0, Update required for: 0, New symbols: 1
Updating new symbols...
Symbol: UEY:CME, Bars: 0

Provider update complete for BBFree Static
----------------

Update completed (1.435 sec)
----------------



Can someone help me with this issue? Just need currency data on majors and some EM.

Thank you in advance ! ! !

This symbology link is (probably) not applicable. Neither of these tickers are recognized by the BBFree provider. For symbol lookup, try using this website and enter a fragment of the ticker in the "Search Quotes and News" box.

If still no go, I suggest the QuoteMedia provider which has the widest choice of currencies, derivatives and exotic tickers.

Due to demise of the free data feed we have to take down the BBFree provider from the Extensions section.
