Snapshots - what are they? - The BullCharts "snapshot" data plan sits in between the End of Day (EOD) plan and the live data plan. The “snapshot” plan is basically the same as the EOD plan plus five snapshot updates which work as follows:- Every hour on the hour, the BullCharts servers take a snapshot of the latest prices on the Aussie market, and make this available to snapshot users as from 20 minutes past the hour — use the BullCharts menu option Tools > Update Snapshot. That is, from 11:20am onwards, a snapshot user can download the 11am snapshot of the market data. Your BullCharts software will add this snapshot of data into your BullStore database as though it was the end of day data after 7:30pm, so that you can readily view price charts, and run scans.
