FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

System Requirements

The Add-in works only with the Windows version of Excel; the minimum version supported is Excel 2007.

If you wish to use the Add-in on an Apple Mac, then you can use Parallels for the Mac which enables the Windows version of Excel to run on a Mac.

Each subscription is valid for one machine only in order to avoid the sharing of subscriptions between multiple users.

If for some reason you need to change machine and move the Add-in to your new computer, please get in touch with us.

Data Sources

No, there are no extra charges that you need to pay to Yahoo Finance, IG Index or Quandl in order to access their data. The only charge you need to pay is the Excel Price Feed subscription.

The Add-in can currently connect to 3 data sources:

Yahoo Finance IG Index / IG Markets Quandl
Additional Charge No No No
User Account Required No Yes Yes
Live Market Data Yes Yes No
Streaming Market Data No Yes No
Historical Data Yes Yes Yes
Real time Client Sentiment Data No Yes No
Historical Client Sentiment Data No Yes
(no IG Index account required)

You only need an IG Index account if you want to access data provided by IG Index. If you only require data from Yahoo Finance or Quandl, then you don't need an IG Index account.
The only exception is historical Client Sentiment data. We source this data from IG Index but we store it on our side so you don't need an IG Index account to access it.

Yes, we provide both real time and historical Client Sentiment data that we source from IG Index. In order to access the real time Client Sentiment Data you need an IG Index account. However, you do NOT need to have an IG Index account to access the historical Client Sentiment Data.

Because IG Index does not make available Client Sentiment data historically, we download Client Sentiment data on an hourly basis and store it. That way we can make it available to our customers.

Please note that depending on the market, the earliest date for which we have historical data might differ (depending on when we started collecting it). In addition, we cannot guarantee the completeness of this data as there might be small gaps (in cases where for connectivity or other reasons, we failed to acquire it).

Free Trials

No, we don't require credit card details to start a trial. The only information we require is your email address so we can send you a Trial Activation Code.

You will receive an email with an Activation Code. Detailed instructions on how to download, install and activate Excel Price Feed are here. The 10 day trial only starts once you have activated the Add-in.

If you haven't yet purchased a subscription, the Excel Price Feed Add-in will stop working and you will no longer be able to receive financial prices through the Add-in.

Pricing and Billing

You can see details of our pricing and purchase a subscription on the Pricing page. Select the subscription that suit your needs, you will then be prompted to enter your email address and payment details. Please enter the same email address you used to sign up for the trial. On receipt of a successful payment your subscription will start immediately.

The payment system (or "payment gateway") that we rely on is Stripe. Stripe is used by millions of companies to handle their payments.

The details relating to your payment information are transmitted over a secure encrypted connection with Secure Socket Layer (SSL) directly to the payment platform. For this reason, at no time during the purchase procedure are we able to know, and then to keep on file, your credit card number, which is transmitted directly to Stripe.

The Add-in includes a link to your personal Subscription Dashboard where you can change your payment method and view your payment history.

Drop us an email at hello@coderun.net and we will cancel your subscription so that you don't get charged again for another period (month/year). You will be able to continue using the add-in for the rest of the period you have already paid for. We don't provide partial refunds if the cancellation occurs partway through a month/year.


Email support is available for all trial and subscription users. We also monitor the Excel Price Feed Support Forum which we encourage you to post any questions to or discuss any aspect of the product.
Priority and telephone/Skype support can be arranged for an additional monthly fee.
