Configuring Bodhi Freeway 2 for Insight Trader
Insight Trader is a charting program supplied by It accesses data from Bodhi Freeway 2's BodhiOne format.
    The BodhiOne format uses the following default directories:
  • c:\My Databases\BodhiOne\%Source%\Stocks => If you are downloading information from the ASX, this directory will contain any equity and/or index symbols you choose (ie. BHP, CBADA and/or XJO etc.).
  • c:\My Databases\BodhiOne\%Source%\Options => If you are downloading information from the SFE, this directory will contain any Future option symbols you choose.

    The %Source% is a wildcard and will be replaced with the 3 letter Exchange Code of any Exchange data you download. This ensures that the symbols for each exchange are kept separate which stops any incorrect data being written into instruments which have the same symbol.

These directories will only be created if you have selected symbols that fit their criteria. Note: Directories are created automatically on your first download.
