    Hi. Heading away for couple months and will only have the ability to trade via dial up. Any traders used esignal in this way? Only looking to intraday swing.

    I wouldn't recommend streaming data with a dial-up connection. Today's market volumes would easily overwhelm a 56k connection. You may want to look at some of the multi-band air cards based on the Edge/GPRS/3G networks if you will be within cellular reception. They have much better throughput than dial-up.

    That being said, if dial-up is still the only connection method, then I would recommend eSignal OnDemand, which has dramatically lower bandwidth demands because it is snapshot data that is refreshed on a set period, but you still have all the power of eSignal built in.
