fowkesp,

We did have an issue with the LIFFE today due a network connection problem. This data has been updating since 9:32am GMT. We will be investigating the cause in greater detail and will take preventative measures against future outages.

Sincerely,
Jay F.

eSignal feed given up the ghost for LIFFE

eSignal datafeed just stopped in mid-trade for LIFFE FTSE @ 12:55-ish. As always, IB feed fine.

Wondered why the chart said "fine" and TWS open-trade profit said "Uh-uh". Now I now why.

You know I really liked e-signal when I trialed it. But it still seems to have problems with it's European feeds. Just not good enough considering it's cost. If quality were superb I'd change to it once I am full time trading.

To be fair, Helen, I haven't had any problems with it since I last posted in this thread, and it's bomb-proof on the US markets. Still not good enough for the money though.

On the other hand, IB just keeps on working so I must get around to making TradeStation use IB instead of eSignal.

Help - totally confused!!

eSignal FTSE feed now back again but it is showing prices 8 points lower than my IB feed for the September contract (eg at 10:35, IB says 4128, eSignal says 4118).

Can someone please assure me that IB is correct?

For the FSTE feed I would trust IB before esignal just based on past experience. However, it is probably worth contacting IB direct just to confirm one way or the other.

My PATS is showing the same as your IB, I've just emailed eSignal because that is not the Sept price and it's not simply delayed.

Seems they've got themselves in a right mess this time then. I know they've been spouting off about how they were upgrading their European feeds lately to make them faster and more reliable, but they didn't mention they would be sending incorrect data as well :confused:

Who said that trading wasn't a laugh a minute?

Hello all,

How has the European data been today on eSignal? As mentioned in this thread, we implemented an upgrade last evening, and from all accounts the data has been performing well.

For those that have been using it today, what has your experience been like with the Eurex data?

Thank you for your candor.

Well, I've just watched IB for a while and compared it to eSignal The eSignal feed is generally about 0.5 second behind IB, but at times seems to lag significantly, the prices going way out of line for extended periods. For instance the two were tracking quite closely a minute ago, but then IB jumped up 5 points and eSignal stayed where it was for over 30 seconds. No good really.

Paul,

I just received word that some issues arose shortly after the open of the new feed and were required to roll back to the former Eurex configuration. Once things are ironed out, we'll set-up another conversion date. Please keep an eye on this thread for further updates on the subject.

We apologize for the delay.
