    I need the following:

    Real time.

    Intraday line charts on s&p futures, stocks.
    I just want to see numbers from the opening bell to the close.
    I dont want to see continuous info. from yesterday.
    This also means the beginning info. will be sorta skewed, i.e. the beginning lines will be more volatile than than the info. later in the day.

    Some type of historical average volume for stocks. Ex. 10 day avg.

    I was using Reuters Plus, but need to consider other now.

    I need more, but this is my initial concern(s).

    Thanks to all.

  2. I use Esignal and it provides all you seem to need. Will be around $100/mth. I also have a 'Volume with MA' study that I could upload to you if you do get Esignal. It's not one of their regular studies and I can't remember exactly where I got it.
  3. I would also suggest you check esignal. The package that you would be interested in is $79/month annual prepay. I have been a user of esignal for about 4 years, and it is becoming a very complete software package.

    Also, anybody know why Tradestation does not offer a 30 day free trial?
  5. here is a free trial for qcharts. ive noticed a big improvement since they stopped the freeloaders. i used to have to change servers many times a day. now maybe once a day and some days have been able to run all day on same server with about a .40 to 1 sec ping time.
