    noticed that european cash indices (dax, cac) in esignal have stopped working the past few days.

    anyone else having similar problems? do you have to pay extra for this feed now?
  2. Yes $daxi is not working.

    Maybe Esignal support can chime in.

    so you have to pay $2/month for the german indices now eh.

    guess they're thinking of new ways to increase fees. hope they're exerting as much thought in improving the service and features.
  5. It's similar with futures.... they increased the cost for Eurex, too.... and rarely you can find a datafeed with Eurex for free as it happens previously. Now also with the demo software you can't access to realtime Eurex because they are asking a fees to the platforms vendors.
