Automatic import of daily data

I'm assuming that the RE import csv files is manual and not configurable for automatic daily import.

Given this, would I implement a Data Retrieval plugin to automate the daily import of a stock data text file ?

I had thought originally to implement a Data Store plugin to my DB, but maybe the Data Retrieval is simpler. I am a low frequency - daily, weekly trader so maybe a Data Store plugin is over the top.

Any pointers in the right direction would be appreciated (even sod-off and stop wasting our time would be fine!!)

[PS. not a signed up user yet - but I am definitely going to use RE - takes a bit of time to get to grips with it but it is really flexible and I'm beginning to like it !]

Thank you.

yes, creating your own data retrieval plugin is the easiest.

It's quite easy to handle this. I made my own data retrieval plugin (which pulls data from my in-house database). Then I made a simple bat file, which runs RightEdge with command line parameters to download fresh data and run a few automated systems. Set the Windows Task Scheduler to automatically run the bat file every morning, and you're done.
