I think its a terrific package. Using it for futs and us stocks. And a rt/server for amibroker and Metaserver-->Prosuite2000i or MS/RT or Excel/RT.
Take the time to study all options, if possible using a second datafeed with more data (ameritrade/scottrade). Play with charting options (like translucent where I put 1 chart ( BUND) over another (BOBL) ). And use set alerts.
Yep I can highly recommend it too. I just use the free package with Scottrade for live index charts mainly. Seems very flexible too in allowing the user to change settings on the charts. The only downside is that, as Bb said, you only get 2 days worth of data.
What I do is highlight the stock in your stock list and then right click and you get the screen below. You can select Level II or Raw Data which is the T & S and then just repeat this to get more Level II screens up.
For the US data I use money.net but I have no need of UK data so I dont know if they would provide this but I suspect that they dont. You can get a free 14 day trial to try it which is worth considering.
I think that the software is fine, but I do not like the fact that the free service will only hold 2 days of data, I think it holds 5 days if you are using a pay feed. Using esignal alongside it, I found that the indicators have totally different readings - due to their different capacities for historical data. Personally I would prefer more historical data than less.
Also, you need to be connected to the program and internet all day or your charts will not update, if you have broadband this will not cause a problem.
if you want more data, you DO have the option of registering
As for having to be connected all day, thats not quite true - QuoteTracker can backfill the charts, same as the other packages. You just need to use a datafeed that supports backfill. Most of the subscription datafeeds do, as well as a number of brokers, including DATEK/Ameritrade, Freetrade, CyberTrader and Scottrade. For US Securities, you can also subscribe for free to Scottrade to get 1 day backfill. For UK securities, we support ADVFN right now (I think you need subscription for backfill - don't remember for sure) but will be adding full MoneyAM support shortly. We plan to add eSignal shortly as well for all exchanges that they support.
I don't think there is another program that will allow you to use 2 day real time charts for free. Registering is worth it as the 5 day charts makes a big difference. Are there any plans to increase the maximum days? The more days I can see on a chart, the better it is.
I do find the RSI a bit oversensitive for the Dow, even with a 5 day chart. Changing the settings doesn't seem to help much. I still check the RSI on bigcharts as that seems to only hit 20 or 80 occasionally. It would be great if I could get the RSI to look like that.
