    The eSignal 7.5 update also offers new technical studies from leading experts including Kase StatWare, Bollinger Band Tool Kit and Jan Arps’ Sigma Bands. Each of these studies provides proprietary indicators that automatically adapt to changing market conditions, increasing an investor’s views into volatile market conditions. Other additions to eSignal 7.5 include several enhancements to the advanced charts feature.

  2. Raphel,

    I just downloaded and installed the 7.5 version. I tried to retrieve historical data and could not go further back than November 28, 2003, using either symbols ES Z3=2, or ES #F=2. Otherwise the software works just fine. Any suggestions?

    I am guessing that you are probably looking at a tick or tick based chart. Those only have 10 days of data available.

    I am currently using a competing software, but I'm thinking of changing/adding another. A few questions. Is there a symbol limit with e-Signal? Does your software have a real time scanner that will scan the entire market, not just the symbols I have listed? Can you export data via SSL or DDE to Excel in real time? Thanks.

    Why only ten days of tick data?

    Now the title lettering is spread across the entire top of the chart blocking candles making new highs. This is not an improvement.

  7. Raphel,

    Thank you for your response. Actually, I was using 1-minute charts. However, I noticed this morning that the historical data goes back beyond the date I mentioned, although I have not yet checked the limit. As you are no doubt aware, even using the Ctrl and arrow keys to scroll back is a time consuming process (even with a DSL connection). I will check for the limit later this evening and advise you if I cannot access the promised 6 months of intraday data.



  8. - eSignal still didn't fix the bug of those annoying "stuck labels" on the X and Y axis. Please see this thread:

    - Please create shortcuts keys for "Save Layout" and "Save Layout and All files".

    Hope eSig rep can pass this to someone who listens.. been asking about these for quite a while..

  9. Tea,

    I was bothered too but there is a way to remove this: RightClick the chart, choose Edit Studies, and un-check "Display Description"

    Thanks, I'll try that.
