Notes

  • Updates are available after 16:45 Pacific time.

  • Until late 2009, Unicorn volume data was capped at 2,147,483,647 (integer number limit). This is an issue with Unicorn data and not with the Market Sentiment data provider.

  • If you haven't downloaded market sentiment data before or your DataSet was updated 5 days ago or earlier, the provider will download the complete historical data. Otherwise, only the available updates will be downloaded to minimize bandwidth and increase the update speed.

  • Here's an example of plotting McClellan Oscillator using data provided by "Market Sentiment" (code requires Community Indicators library 2010.10 and up):

  • Unicorn Research collects the data from publicly-available sources and reports the median values found. For more details, see:
