quickly I respond, [you can use the 'quote' feature, instead of retyping someone's text by the way ] Yes, that sucks. Join me and let's convince them. some european futures markets would not update in realtime. again, let me point out it is easy to fix. It is only a pity that's not done fully automatically. eSignal has always been very kind to me. I do notice once in a while a pause, but because I have other providers I know it is all of them at the same time [probably some burst in my ISP's networks]. you can modify the data in Ensign in case of bad ticks. Bad ticks are as common as with other packages. but I like the auto censor mode of qcharts. eSignal does not have this. You know what ? the great thing with ensign is you can code your OWN bad tick filter, in real time !!! yes, that's right ! it's a pretty good piece of software.
