Dax Trader,

Do you have to have an add-on subscription with Esignal for the FX?

IB has a DDE link, so if you have 3rd party charting software you can collect data realtime straight off IB, and have a source for data patches when not on-line which costs £140 pa

A little bit labour intensive, but uses low bandwidth and I find my charts easier to use than other packages I've looked at.

Used to pay $2100 pa for separate feed but it was slower and bandwidth intensive - fine here at office with ADSL, but home and laptop not so good.

Rossored uses Sierra and gets the history as well through them, so must work somehow.

Snapdragon may not have all the bells and whistles, but it doesn't go wrong often and produces nice charts, a lot nicer than E signal et al (imo :D of course)
