    Hey ET,

    I wanted to know which data providers you feel provide the best fractional minute data? What I mean is, I am looking for accurate OHLC and volume for tick data I guess. Currently, with Esignal, I am fine with the whole minute data but fractional minute data is full of wicks and inaccurate volume.

    Anyone have any recommendations?

    Thanks in advance,

    Wow, this sounds more complicated than I had hoped. I'm sure it's just that I do not have a background in technology.

    I'm just hoping to find a data package that can build charts from a tick level with very accurate OHLC and volume data. My goal is to find such a package and then have my "idea" coded to be able to execute trades based on my concept through the use of clean tick data. This would be for the SPY.
