AmiQuote is a companion program shipped with AmiBroker, which allows data from free resources, such as Yahoo Finance, Google Finance and others. Since it is a separate application, then it can work independently from AmiBroker and it saves data in text files stored in Destination Folder defined in Tools->Settings window:
AmiQuote can also communicate with AmiBroker using OLE automation and automatically import downloaded data into AmiBroker if Automatic Import option is selected:
AmiQuote will import data to the database, which is opened in AmiBroker at the time of import.
Additionally, if more than one instance of AmiBroker is opened at the same time with different databases loaded, then AQ will communicate with the instance that was launched first and will import data into the database opened in this instance of AmiBroker.
