This is by far the worst piece of software I have seen in a long time. (BTW, I have over 20 years software development experience specializing in database internals.)
With esig 10 I have 4 open windows. My main complaint is that it takes a long time to load tick based charts and is limited in memory that it can use, i.e. number of bars that can be displayed.
esig 11 has improved the data loading, but that is about it. I have 1 of my 4 windows implented in 11. The efs studies I developed are without the trading dll I implented. Further, they are all designed to return null after the initial load. There are 2 es range charts, a 5 minute chart, and an add chart. Even with everything totally dumbed down, 11 regularly runs full cpu load and consumes all available memory (3.1 ghz, 16 mb). Further, it regularly crashes windows 7 once all the memory is consumed, the only program I know of that does that.
You need to think of this like esig 1, it will probably need several major versions before it is really usable, at least for trading active markets like the es.
I can use it on weekends and evenings to study historical range charts. The amount of data it actually loads seems a bit random as to where it cuts out, but my time template is set to 365 days and I have gotten as far back as sept. 2011.
Another problem is that some of the built in studies are inaccurate, so the efs results are not consistent with esig 10. This may be because the default parameters are different, I'll have to look into that more.
