Symbol list

All the symbols are available on the left pane.
Each symbol is found in its category. Several symbols can be selected at the same type by clicking on the category itself.
If the symbol is installed, a green check sign is displayed, otherwise a red cross sign. If all symbols of a category are installed, the category icon will be green.

History and Brokers

For each symbol, it's possible to download data from different available brokers.
The software shows the available history, which is the data stored on the NakedMarkets servers and can be downloaded whenever it's necessary. Below, it shows the downloaded history, which is the data installed locally on your NakedMarkets data folder.
If the installed history is not up-to-date, the date will be underlined.
