DDE Question

    I am trying to figure out my options for a DDE feed. I need a feed that separates regional quotes from NYSE quotes on the bid/ask.

    The software I know of that do this are:
    AT Financial
    eSignal (can someone confirm this?)

    I know the following feeds don't work:

    Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Try IB.

    IB has a small symbol limit. I need 500 symbol ability.

    Any other suggestions? I'm testing eSignal but their feed does not appear to be accurate. Their bid/ask data is often different in the DDE than the program itself.
  4. The q feed is better than the TAL feed I can tell you that. Friend of mine just switched over likes it better.
  5. IQFeed has full support for Excel DDE. Their subscription is max 500 symbols. $20/month + exchange fees (more for options, futures) if signed up through QuoteTracker. Excel DDE can be used with that subscription with or without QuoteTracker running.

    I called IQFeed yesterday. The rep said it is not possible to filter out regional exchanges in their DDE feed. Can you confirm this?


    If ISLD is the best bid in AOL I don't want to see that price. I only want to see the best NYSE price.
  7. ah, did not know that. Must be a restriction on the DDE feed specifically.
