Cant get S#Designer to Access Data
Atom
1/10/2017


Hi,

I downloaded the past year of 5 minute bars for SPFB.BR from Finam directly into S#designer. I see the data was saved to the location in screenshot 1.jpg.
I then tried to backtest the "Sample Candles" strategy over the data (see 2.jpg and 3.jpg), but got the error message in 4.jpg.

It seems S#Designer cannot find the data in the folder I stored it in, but the data is there.

Any idea what the issue is?

Thanks

Please check the storage format in Hydra and Designer. They both are use csv or bin. What the data format you chosen in Hydra?

They are both in bin.

However I downloaded this data directly via Designer. I did not use Hydra to download this data.

Designer by default uses CSV format for backtesting. Open the settings and check what you have here

Hi, can you please post a screenshot (or two) showing how you accessed the "proprieties" area shown in the screenshot from your last post?

I've searched various tabs in Designer and could not figure out how you accessed it.
