Hi all,

I like to ask did myfxbook disable the export function in the Economic calendar cause I used to export the data under cvs.

You mean the calendar.xml ? I have contacted support about that, and their answer was that they removed due to abuse.
What are you trying to do exactly ? I've made a dotnet code to parse html calendar if you need to fetch the data in a software.

hi bmigette; good to hear they answered at least.

they shouldn't remove because of bad usage. Internet is full of this kind of things. They could use Catcha or something; and keep it running.

about your donet; can I get hold of it? do you provide it for free?

best

I've compiled an example here:
forex.bmigette.fr/MFXBookCalendar2XML.zip

You can open the project in visual studio, or run the .exe file which is in bin/debug. It will produce event.xml file containing all events.

Note that fecthing http is taking roughly 10s, also, if you want to use this tool, for the sake of Mfx servers, do not run it more than once a minute, which is more than enough.

hi bmigette,

  I had ran the .exe file but I don't see it produce event.xml. Are there any additional steps that I need to do in order to get that results. I
am not well verse in high level programming.
