Any OpenTick Users?

  1. Can anyone who has or is currently using OpenTick data provide some feedback on data quality, lag, etc?

    I would also be interested to know what charting software you are using with the OpenTick data feed and your thoughts on that. On their site it looks like some of the usual players ...

    Sierra Charts
    Wealth Lab
    Right Edge
    Ninja Trader

  2. I use OpenTick with OpenQuant, Works fine for me.

    Works fine for EOD data for me too but it is not primary and not even secondary data source.
  4. Using it with MultiCharts.

    OpenTick has frequent data lags and outages. It can get annoying when markets react to news and your data is lagging a few seconds. But I still use it because the Minis are free and I only trade bigger trends, therefore have no need for razorsharp data streams.
  5. The emini's are free? I think i'm paying for them. I'll have to check this out
