Key Notes for Norgate Data as a Data Source

The following issues may be encountered when setting up Norgate Data as a data source for Share Trade Tracker, please review the resolutions below before contacting our support team.

Norgate Data subscription is NOT confirmed
If you are sure that you have a valid Norgate Data subscription on your computer and it is not being recognised by Share Trade Tracker it could be due to suffix approach that you Norgate Data plan is using. This will only apply to users that have been with Norgate Data for a long time (ie more than 2 years). For those subcribers the suffix will not be recognised by Share Trade Tracker for Australian stocks. There is an easy fix for this and it involves contacting the Norgate Data support desk and requesting that your plan is updated to use the mandatory suffix approach where all Australian stocks use .AU as the suffix.

Please only contact the Norgate Data support desk if you have an existing Norgate Data subscription.
