Couldn't get Metastock 7 files to load

Couldn't get Metastock 7 files to load from this source. For example:

Apparently the EOD symbol names are Cyrillic so they display as ??? even in WL6 but its data provider has no trouble with the intraday one (the example symbol name here is SBER).

I'm seeing the daily data, try symbol GTL??. Let me know if you see the data. But I see some chance here to improve the experience by providing an option to automatically create a universe for Metastock/ASCII Data Sources upon creation.

That would be awesome.

I also determined the reason why the intraday day data (60-minute) was not loading, that will be corrected in Q156 as well.

Note that Metastock intraday tends to have the timestamp at the beginning of the bar, which probably needs to be changed to End of Bar for QS?
