I have been using Amibroker for last 4 years,And frankly never got tempted to try any other
Charting platform.Amibroker serves me well.

Today I will share few tips and tricks to use Amibroker efficiently.

First and foremost ,What a trader requires ?

The more the screen space for plotting chart the better it would be .
So when in live market tracking stocks its a good practice to keep all stocks ready on tab
and run through them during market hours.
Hers my Amibroker screenshot.
You can see the screen how the chart area is enhanced by removing the less frequently
things from the Amibroker pane.
Also the Pre analyzed stocks are up front in tabs.

Here's one more simple trick to compare two charts in one frame

Hope this helps new bees to understand Amibroker in a better way

How can I get realtime data in the most cost efficient and reliable way possible? Are there any free providers?

Hi Tarun My thinking free things never work pay a little and get the work done there are many data providers who take little fees to provide real time data.
True data or data fetchers are cheap real time data providers.
Then there is IRIS ad Falcon which are costly.
