    Hello, I installed ESignal 10.0 recently and have some technical questions. I have a pretty late model PC with an AMD Athlon 64 and I find that when I toggle between the multiple pages I've created ESignal crashes and my screen turns blue, and the computer reboots. This has happened a few times consecutively and this is after hours, with no rapid data changes in the marketplace occurring. I'm worried about what will happen during market hours. Do you have any suggestions for this problem and can you point me in the right direction? Thank you.
  3. The AMD 64 chip is not compatable or reliable with esignal and will crash your system often on high volume stocks. I found this out the hard way over one year ago when I switched from the Pentium chip to AMD.

    So 10 will continue to crash with AMD. Better off getting a new dual core chip or use esignal verison 8.0

    I am looking to see if esignal has 2 indicators I currently use on open e cry. I would like to get esginal for charting but just want to check. One is the AO indicator- Awesome oscillator( thats its name) And AC- Acceleration deceleration oscillator both look farily like a macd , thanks in advance for your answers, Do you have these?

    It is disappointing to see that esignal still does not integrate all ECN books and MMs in one screen.

  6. I believe that one of the esignal 3rd party developers, Chris Kryza, has created both of these indicators in EFS.

    I've never used these specific studies, but have used other things Chris has created and have always been very happy with the results.


  7. Akeyla,

    I'd love to see it all on the same screen too, but the last time I asked was told that they were being stopped from doing it because of a patent. I don't think this has changed since the last release.


  8. AMD has always been goofy like that. I had some old XBase program back in the early 90's that would not run on a AMD machine. Gave divisor by zero error.
