    Hi Everyone,

    I have been using Esignal but realise that my time stamp is consistently 2 sec slower. I got this conclusion after checking my system time with that of Does the difference in time means that the data i m getting is 2 seconds slow or is it just something wrong with esignal time server and not the data ?

    And also, i m wondering which is the best datafeed u guys are using ?

    Finally, thanks for answering my queries.
  2. What type of internet connection do you have?

    I'm using esignal concurently with cybercorps own lvlII datafeed. I have found no deviations in terms of price delays... To be honest, i do not attempt to correct the time difference between of and my system anymore... My priority is quotes that are accurate rather than time stamps that could drift due to CPU loads..

    Your best test if you can is watch CNBC before the market opens, bootup esignal and as soon as you hear the DING-DING-DING on CNBC, your esignal level II should have the little "c" after the market makers removed.

    cheers :)

    i m using a 1.5 mbs cable connection. I m staying in Singapore, that is why i thought the delay is due to some internet latency.

    I think i will try mindgame's suggestion and see how thing works out.

    :) Thanks guys !
