Ensign/DTN has pushed me too far this time

  1. The Ensign / DTN iq is just too glitchy for me to carry on with.

    The question is, do I go with esignal or stay with DTNiq and switch charting programmes.

    It is a great pity because there are features of ensign that I like but I suspect that my custom indicators plus vol and range bars are proving too much and nobody can provide an enduring solution.

    I would be interested in your thoughts especially if you are trading vol or range bars just above the scalping level where speed, clarity and accuracy are essential.

    I gave up on DTN months ago and I'm with esignal for $125 data feed and Ensign.

    I struggled to justify the data cost in the beginning but it's paid for itself over and over because of the accuracy compared to DTN.
  3. Thanks Joab,

    The cost is neither here nor there.
    How does the speed and accuracy of data compare IYO.

    What sort of bars are you using.

    I found eSignal much more timely and reliable than DTN. I used to use volume candlesticks and never had a problem.
  5. Thank you notouch.

    Do you know esignal supplies volume at the ask and volume at the bid.
