DazData is a simply powerful tool for accessing data from the Internet and bringing it to the analyst toolbench.

A DazData Source is defined and provided by DazRisk.  Additional Sources may be provided in the future or to meet specific needs.

The Sources provided in DazData v1.0 are based on Yahoo Finance:

  1. Yahoo Historical
    This is designed to download historical data series from finance.yahoo.com
    It covers the majority of exchange investments in the majority of markets
    The data is different for stocks versus funds
  2. Yahoo Japan Historical

    It covers the Japanese exchange investments that are not accessible through finance.yahoo.com

Services

A DazData Service is the ‘thing’ created and used by you in DazData.  It is the Service that is the key to DazData’s flexibility.

You can create as many Services as you like and it would not be unusual for a specific Source to be used in many Services.

Schedules

A DazData Service may be run interactively using the DazData user interface or run automatically using a Schedule.

Multiple Services can share the same Schedule and a single Service may have multiple Schedules, as you wish.

Schedules are run by DazRunner, a background process.

The Schedule component may be shared with other Daz tools in the future, increasing your flexibility to automate multiple tasks.

An actively running Schedule is indicated by the System Tray icon.

Logs

All DazData events, whether triggered interactively or by a Schedule, are logged.

You can redo an event directly from the Log.
